Pastor Gary & Tammy Grisham

Welcome to Van Buren First Assembly, we are glad you are here! I came to VBFA in December of 1980, to serve as youth pastor. After coming here I met the love of my life, Tammy, and we have served in many areas over the years. We’ve served as youth pastors, super church pastors, worship pastors, and christian education pastors. Presently, we serve as associate pastors and senior saints pastors! We have two daughters, Megan & Andrew Harrison, Amber & Darren Overton, and six wonderful grandchildren, Cade, Gunner, Porter, Truitt, Coleman, and Bennett!

Youth Pastors

Pastor Cody & Lauren Dunn

We are the Student Pastors at VBFA where we have both attended our whole lives and grew up together as childhood friends. After falling in love and getting married in 2011, we both landed our dream jobs as student pastors and an english teacher at Van Buren High School. We have a heart for our church and our community. We enjoy browsing for antiques and kayaking in the summer. Most importantly we love coming home to our baby boy Boston and our dog Oakley.
