At Graceland Church we are guarded by our elders, who give direction and leadership to our church family. We are guided by our staff under the leadership of our Lead Pastor, Dr. Nathan Millican. We are served by our deacons who help with the physical needs of our church family. We are gifted by the body as Jesus works through us.


Our Elders

Our church Elders are Ryan Brown, David Gantenbein, Bill Hinton, Matt Lowe, Nate Millican, Reuben NesSmith, Jon Pearce, Joel Ragains, and Larry Riley.
