Pastor Clinton D. McFarland is the dynamic Senior Pastor and Founder of the Grace Baptist Church, located in Stockbridge, Georgia.
Pastor McFarland has been preaching and teaching the Word of God for over twenty- five years. Born in 1967 in Shubuta, Mississippi, to the late Reverend Cleveland McFarland, Senior and Dora McFarland, he eagerly began to serve as a musician in his father’s church at the tender age of eight. At the age of twenty-two, he accepted a mandate from God to proclaim His Word. Because his passion for the word of God was so intense and obviously filled with purpose, he was called to pastor his first church five months later and had the privilege of pastoring in his native state for 18 years.
The Lord spoke to Pastor McFarland in 2014 and instructed him to step out on faith and establish Grace Baptist Church. Hungry for the anointed Word of God, hundreds of worshippers attended the first service on the last Sunday in November 2014. The establishment of Grace Baptist Church is likened to an elect opportunity to reveal to God’s people just how much God will do when we trust and obey Him.
