Big Staff Changes at Grace Baptist Church

The Reverend Courtney E. Allen - Senior Pastor

A native of Jackson, Mississippi, Courtney is a graduate of Vanderbilt University with a degree in religious studies and sociology. She earned a Master of Divinity from the Wake Forest University School of Divinity in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. She is currently at First Baptist Church in Dalton, Georgia. Courtney has served churches in Mississippi and North Carolina, and as a rebuilding coordinator in Gulfport, Mississippi, following Hurricane Katrina. She shares many of her adventures with Zeke, a 7-year-old Jack Russell terrier. Courtney savors offering meals and hospitality to others and enjoys photography (though she hasn’t been in a dark room in ages), hiking and enjoying God’s creation outdoors. In addition, she is pursuing a Doctor of Ministry in congregational development at Bexley Seabury Theological Federation in Chicago.


Grace has been blessed with Linda Wentz in our church office since March of 2006.  Linda has decided that it is time to retire, and July 2 will be her last day.  We appreciate all that Linda has done for us throughout these nine years.  She has been a dedicated and motivated employee, always willing to do what was needed in a professional manner. 


The Personnel Commission is pleased to announce that Ann Wooldridge will be our new Ministries Assistant at Grace.  Ann received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology degree from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2009, and a Master of Arts in Human Services degree from Liberty University in 2013.

Ann started on June 23, and will have two weeks of overlap with Linda Wentz.  We welcome Ann to Grace!
