Pastor Drew Hunsley

Family Ministries


Drew came to GRBC in 2015 to serve as Associate Pastor of Family Ministries after serving in similar roles at Oakland Baptist Church (Roanoke, VA) and Highland Park Baptist Church (Mount Airy, NC). He is a graduate of Liberty University (BS in Youth Ministry, 2008) and Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary (MAR in Discipleship Ministries, 2013 & Masters of Divinity, 2017). As Pastor of Family Ministries, Drew works to facilitate and serve the children, youth, and college students of GRBC, along with their families, as they attempt to navigate those challenging years of life. The hope for our family ministries at GRBC is to see our young people “grow in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God and man” (Luke 2:52).

Drew and his wife, Kari, were high school sweethearts and were married on January 3, 2009. They have three children: Peyton (2012), Sadie (2013), and Oliver (2016). Drew was born in North Carolina, but has grown up in the Roanoke Valley since elementary school. When he is not chasing around his 3 crazy children, Drew enjoys spending time playing sports (golf, basketball, softball), going to the movies with Kari, reading, or watching sports (Go Duke!).
