I was raised in a pastors home so I heard the Gospel from a very young age. I remember being in the car with my dad and asking him how could I have Jesus in my heart like my older brother. That day he walked me back through the beautiful truth of how Christ died in my place to pay for my sins. And that He rose again to prove He had defeated death and the grave. HE told me that by grace through faith I could have a personal relationship with Christ.

Brandon has been leading worship for over 15 years, traveling to locations all around the world spreading the Gospel, and encouraging the church through song. Growing up, he was introverted, and did not like the attention that came when people realized his musical talents, so he hid them for many years… It wasn’t until he was 15 that the Lord was able to finally get a hold of his heart and reveal to him that his talents and abilities were not to hide in a closet, nor to make a name for himself, but to point others to Jesus and His kingdom.

JC has been in full-time ministry for 22 years. He was the founding campus pastor of Rock Bridge Community Church (Ringgold Campus), where he served for nine years until God moved his family to serve in student and college ministry in South Georgia. In 2022, God called the Groves family to move yet again, this time back to North Georgia. They took a step of faith, loaded the U-Haul, and headed north – with no job, home, or idea what they were supposed to do. God showed them His plan by opening the door for them to launch Hope Church Catoosa in February 2023. In addition to pastoring, JC serves as a radio host on Moody Radio and hosts The Recovering Fundamentalist Podcast. This weekly podcast is designed to encourage those who have been negatively affected by fundamentalist legalism in the church and to challenge those who promote tradition over Scripture. JC has a passion to see people from all walks of life not only meet Jesus, but also own their faith! His desire is to keep you laughing while presenting the truth of the Word in a fresh, practical way. JC and his wife, Kym, have been together for 17 years and have six kids ranging in age from 13 to 5 years old.
