Michael graham, Assoc Pastor-youth

Michael grew up in Florence, South Carolina. He has  served in churches in both Florence and Greenville. He began his role as  our Student Minister here in August 2017. 

He received a BA in Student Ministry  from North Greenville University in Tigerville, SC. There, he felt  confirmed that God had placed a calling on his life to minister to  students. His desire is for teenagers to grow to love the Lord with all  of their “heart, soul, mind, and strength” as scripture teaches, and  make their relationship with the Lord the most important focus in their  lives. 

Michael enjoys reading, fishing, watching college  football and hanging out with students. Most importantly, he enjoys  seeing students grow spiritually and become disciple makers as scripture  teaches.


Michael married Polly  Scott in December of 2019.  Polly felt  the call for student ministry in high school.  She has been an adult  volunteer with our students here at Central.
