Rev. Casey Southerland
The Lord saved Pastor Casey through the ministry of our Great Lakes Presbytery’s Summer Camp when he was invited to summer camp by his cousin. His family later came to Grace BPC when he was 10 years old. He and his wife, Kelly, who also grew up at GBPC, spent six years away from Grace during college and the start of seminary but returned in 1998 when Casey took the position as Director of Youth Ministries. Casey began serving the congregation as a pastor when he was ordained in 2011. Pastor Casey spent his first year of seminary at Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary and continued at Western Reformed Seminary and Reformed Theological Seminary while serving full-time on staff at the church. Casey and Kelly have raised their 3 sons and 3 daughters here at Grace. In 2019, Pastor Casey became the Field Director for Presbyterian Missionary Union, which has an office in Grace BPC. In addition to serving God’s Kingdom with God’s people, Pastor Casey enjoys hiking, camping, backpacking, canoeing, hunting, and soccer, the world’s greatest sport.
