Pastors & Staff

Greg & Glenna Mayhorn

Head Pastors

Pastor Greg and Glenna Mayhorn came to Central Virginia in late summer of 1990 with their two children, Jennifer and Daniel, to take the pastorate of Freedom Word Church. From the beginning, Pastor Greg believed in placing a strong emphasis on teaching, worship, and the move of the Holy Spirit. Pastor Glenna deeply cares for people of all ages and kinds, and therefore is in charge of our Ladies' Ministry. Today, the ministry continues to grow  as Pastor Greg and Glenna remain committed to the vision and the future is more exciting than ever!
