George Granberry and Vicki
George was born in Grenada, MS and grew up in the Kansas City area. He also lived in Memphis and Chicago area. He was born a covenant child and was baptized as such and grew up going to church in both north and south Presbyterian churches.
Vicki was born and raised in Wichita, KS to a Christian family. She was actively involved in a traveling/singing/evangelistic youth group called All God’s Children. She was able to travel to Australia.
George trusted in Christ as a junior in High School. In college he had a new and growing sense that he wanted to serve Jesus but had no idea what that meant or required but God was working in his heart.
George met Vicki while both were attending Kansas State University and they shared and dreamed of a future ministry together. They were married August 6, 1977. George attended Denver Seminary where he earned his M.Div. and pastored in Longmont, CO, Branson, MO and Wichita, KS.
George had the privilege of planting and pastoring Heartland Community Church in Wichita, KS since 1993. He just transitioned out of the senior pastor position in November of 2020.
George is ordained in the PCA and has 40 years of ministry experience. His passion is preaching and teaching the Word, missions, discipleship and pastoral ministry. He is excited to contribute to the spiritual formation and growth of pastors and churches both in the United States and around the world having participated in and led international missions to Bulgaria, Trinidad, Costa Rica and Uganda.
Due to ongoing physical limitations, he is unable to travel internationally, but is excited to be able to participate as an instructor by means of Zoom and other technologies. ELI is a blessing to meet all of his desires in ministry and he looks forward to helping pastors grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
George enjoys woodworking and being out in God’s creation in wilderness backpacking and canoeing.
George and his wife, Vicki, have two children and 6 grandchildren and a labradoodle named Bear. They just moved to Chattanooga in November of 2020.
