Tommy Green | Lead Pastor

Tommy’s vocational ministry journey began in 1994 shortly after the inception of Grace Fellowship, where he served as youth pastor for 10 years. Tommy was raised in Winnsboro and knew the Lord was calling him into ministry from a young age. A couple years before Grace began, he had applied for ministry school and was accepted. The day before he left, however, the Lord revealed clearly and undeniably that he was not supposed to go. Instead, the Lord showed him that He would equip him for his calling through a different kind of schooling, an unconventional schooling. Years later, he understands that God has been equipping him his whole life, and he is a firm believer that God delights in calling ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Our “yes” is the key that opens the door. During those first 10 years at Grace, he graduated from college and married his wife, Shelley. Together they have three children including a daughter who was adopted internationally. In 2004, they followed the Lord’s leading to Mount Pleasant where they helped his parents with a church plant. During that season, Tommy took a secular job in the service industry where the Lord began to equip him with relational skills, giving him multiple opportunities every day to pray with people in their homes as he was working. In 2010, through a series of supernatural events, God called Tommy and Shelley to central Alabama where they served on staff together at a large multi-site church for nine and a half years. During that time, Tommy was an associate pastor wearing multiple hats as communications director, broadcast coordinator and teaching pastor. He also helped build the children’s ministry and assisted Shelley in building the worship ministry. After the tragic loss of Grace Fellowship’s founding pastor, Billy Condrey, the elders reached out to Tommy and Shelley to prayerfully consider assuming the role of lead pastors at Grace. A move back to Texas was not on their radar, but it soon became clear that He was indeed calling them home. Tommy’s priorities for ministry are pretty simple: love God and love people. What does that mean? Practically speaking, the loving God part looks like seeking Him first in all things, being a lifelong student of His word and cultivating a listening ear to follow His voice in everyday life. As for loving people, that looks like ministering to whoever is right in front of us (not focusing on the masses but rather one person at a time). It’s honoring people for who God says they are and not freaking out about who they are not. (No one is perfect. We are all works in progress.) He’s passionate about helping people understand their worth as children of God and loves seeing them come alive as they discover the joy of serving and connection within a church family. He has a passion for relationships, and he is convinced that no one person or marriage is beyond saving if they have the desire for change and are willing to do the hard work of surrender.
