Pastor Kellen, Sarah, Zebulun, and Benjamin

Hello, I am Pastor Kellen. It is my honor to have you visit our website and learn more about us, and what we stand for.  I have been a part of the Big Laurel Church family since 1995. I was saved at 10 years old and baptized shortly after by my precious Pastor and Grandfather, the late J.A. Griffin in the Big Laurel Creek just below the church. After being called into the ministry in 1998, the Lord opened doors and allowed me to preach the Gospel in churches throughout Western North Carolina. God is so good! My wife Sarah and I have been married since 2010, and we have two awesome boys, Zebulun (6) and Benjamin (4). 2010 was also the year that Big Laurel called me as their Pastor. What a privilege...what an honor...what a responsibility! God's Grace is Amazing! We would love to have you at any and all of our services. Above all, our hearts desire is that you know Jesus as your savior, and follow him all the days of your life. Feel free to contact us if there is anything we can help you with. God bless you!
