Our Beginnings

Reverend Thomas Pendleton Grissom, Sr. was born on October 2, 1893. He was a graduate of Clark College and Gammon Theological Seminary.

Rev. Grissom began preaching in 1930 in the all-black Georgia Conference of the Methodist Church where he served eight churches. He also served six years as District Superintendent of the Rome District.

Rev. Grissom officially retired from the church after 35 years of service. He remained active as Elder-in-Residence at Central United Methodist Church. He faithfully attended the North Georgia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church through June 1998.
