Wayne Grothman

Executive Pastor and
Worship and Arts Pastor

There’s nothing more exciting to Wayne than seeing Jesus being made famous! He loves to lift Jesus’ name through praise and worship at FBC Snellville! His heart has always been to seek God's direction for HIS church. Wayne is a minister at heart and more than anything desires to bring others to a closer relationship with the Savior, whether that be through leading music rehearsals, worship services, or through whatever journey God places before him.

Wayne has served as Worship Pastor since he was 17 years old in Mississippi, Texas, and Arkansas before God's leading to FBC Snellville in 2009.
In 2013 Wayne took on the additional roll of Executive Pastor and enjoys helping to lead an awesome church staff.

Married to Kathy Grothman, the love of his life, for 28 years—they have two children, Steven (17) and Ashley (25) and son-in law Scott. Steven is a Junior at Grayson High School and Scott and Ashley both serve on our Student Ministry Staff.

He has a Bachelors of Music Education from Delta State University (home of the Fighting OKRA), an MA from Southwestern Theological Seminary, and a Doctor of Ministry from Luther Rice Seminary.

Wayne enjoys time with his family, action movies, Broadway musicals and good food, okay... almost any food!


A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.

John 13:34-35 (NIV)
