Eric and Jennifer Griffin
Eric grew up in a small town in LA (Lower Alabama) called Loxley, where he attended a Church of God with his family. As he reached his early teen years he began helping out in the kid’s ministry, and discovered his God given talents with puppetry, characters, and set design & building. Each year in the ministry brought new challenges, until one day he found himself as a lay minister. He was teaching children’s church on a weekly basis and heading up a pre-teen discipleship program when he realized that God was calling him into full time ministry. He accepted that calling wholeheartedly. Eric pursued a position in Southaven, Mississippi, where he was a full time children’s minister for 4 years.
Eric's wife, Jennifer, works part time; however, she has also been called to Children’s ministry and works by Eric’s side. Eric joined our ministry team in October, 2011. Eric & Jennifer have been working hard to develop a strong, family oriented Children’s Ministry program at First Assembly.
