About Life Worth Living
Pastoral Care / Counseling
David W. Grubbs Ph.D.
At the age of 15, David encountered Jesus of Nazareth while watching the movie Ben Hur. Since then he has spent his life learning and teaching the Word of God. His undergraduate work was done at Freed Hardeman College and Atlanta Christian College. He also received a Masters of Ministry and a Masters of Divinity from Luther Rice Seminary and a doctorate from International Seminary.
In addition to his formal studies, Dr. Grubbs has focused on two passions--his passion for seeing God's people obtain victory and freedom through living a Christ centered life and living that life from a biblical worldview.
The ministry of Dr. David Grubbs, fondly called Pastor David for almost 50 years, is characterized by pouring God's grace and mercy over those under his care. It is fitting that this last chapter of ministry would consist of one on one counseling, discipling and training God's people to appropriate the abundant life given to all who have accepted Christ as their Savior.
