God calls all believers to use their gifts for the ministry of the church. Some in the church are specifically set apart for full-time ministry and teaching. These are the "shepherd-teachers" given for the building up of the body of Christ to equip church members to do ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12).


Drew Grumbles and his wife Helen have been married since 2009 and they have two children, Owen and Clara.

After college, he went to Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC for his Masters. Drew came to Brassfield in July 2013. He loves to preach and shepherd the flock of God and hopes to be at Brassfield for a very long time! When he has down time, he reads a lot and likes to watch European soccer (football).
