He has been married to his wife Gabrian for over 20 years and has three kids involved in almost everything. His passions include sharing Christ, buffalo wings, teaching God's Word, football, family, basketball, and writing (in no particular order).

Rich Kunselman - Growth Pastor

I was raised to attend church every week; however I did not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ until I was 33 years old. I have been involved in small groups for the last 15 years, and leading a small group for 12 years. My passion is to help people get connected in a small group, so they can “do life together”. I was born and raised in Western PA. I moved to Jefferson, GA in October of 2015. I am married to my wife, Marsha, and have two grown daughters – Samantha and Shelby.
