Meet the Staff

Pastor Greg Mayhorn

Pastor Greg and Glenna Mayhorn came to Central Virginia in late summer of 1990 with their two children Jennifer and Daniel to take the pastorate of Freedom Word Church-a small group of believers in need of pastoral leadership and a fresh vision for the future. From the beginning there has been a strong emphasis on teaching, worship, and the move of the Holy Spirit.  This is now even stronger, and after relocating and building a new sanctuary in 2004, we are more excited about our future than ever. Pastor Greg published his first book, Tongues: Speaking from the Spiritual Dimension in late 2014.
