ABOUT PASTOR GARRISON & LAURA POLSGROVE
New Hope Eastlake is excited to announce our new Associate Pastor, Garrison Polsgrove!
Garrison Polsgrove married his best friend, Laura, on May 8, 2011 and together they have two children, Kinley (age 6) and Declan (age 2). Garrison Polsgrove was born and raised in Louisville, KY and upon graduating from The Moody Bible Institute he served as a youth pastor at Shepherd Church in Porter Ranch, CA for nine years. During his time at Shepherd Church the youth ministry grew from 250 to 657 students actively involved. In addition, the volunteer staff grew from 60 to 104 members.
It was at Shepherd Church where Garrison met his best friend, Laura, who was a volunteer on the youth staff. They were married on May 8, 2011. Laura is a hair stylist and works with a company to design custom wigs for clients. They have two children, Kinley (age 6) and Declan (age 2).
Garrison is moving here from Colleyville, TX (Dallas-Fort Worth area) where he has served as a Next Steps Pastor (assimilation of new adults into the life of the church) at Compass Christian Church since 2017. Compass is a large, growing church which averages over 6,000 people in attendance on its three campuses and online congregation.
Garrison's love for Jesus and love for people motivates him to inspire others to see themselves as active participants in accomplishing the mission of Jesus by helping connect people to Jesus and to each other. Because of Garrison's love for Jesus, his family, the church, and unique gifting, we are thrilled to have him be apart of our staff to join the great work Jesus is doing through New Hope.
Garrison will officially join our staff on June 15. Among his responsibilities will be teaching on a regular basis, overseeing our small groups, leading our First Impression team, and ministry placement.
Please welcome Garrison and his family as He joins our staff as our Associate Pastor!
