TROY, Ohio—Grace Baptist Church welcomed Chuck Pausley as its associate pastor of family discipleship. Chuck was pastor of student ministries at Berean Baptist Church, Portage, Michigan, since 2010. Grace Baptist installed him to his new role July 22.

He is the third generation of Pausleys to serve at Grace Baptist Church. His father, Chuck, ministered at the church from 1978 to 1994—first as youth and music director, then assistant pastor, and then senior pastor. He is now state representative of the Ohio Association of Regular Baptist Churches. Chuck’s grandfather, also named Chuck, pastored the church as well.

Chuck’s father returned to Grace Baptist to deliver the sermon at his son’s installation service. From the pulpit, he told his son, “God has a purpose and a plan for your lives. Right now it’s at Grace Baptist Church in Troy Ohio. And I can tell you from experience it’s a great church to pastor.”
