David Parrish, Lead Pastor

David was born and raised in Georgia. He met his wife Theresa while serving in the U.S.Army and married in 1985. They have three wonderful children who are truly a blessing. David has been in ministry for over twenty years. Most of this time he was preaching the Gospel to students in various schools throughout the West Georgia area with a ministry called First Priority. David loves the outdoors. Gardening and fishing are favorite pastimes of his.

“It never ceases to amaze me how God uses ordinary people to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. I am blessed to be saved by His grace, humbled to be called to share His Word, and privileged to lead His people here at Villa Rica Christian Church.”

Courtney Crawford, Children’s Director

I grew up in Villa Rica, GA as a child and have recently moved back.  I’ve been married for over 3 1/2 years to the first man I ever dated.  My family and I have been coming to Villa Rica Christian Church for over 7 years.  Added to that, I’ve been a volunteer teacher for over 10 years at a church in Douglasville, GA and VRCC.  I enjoy acting, teaching, being creative, laughing, and seeing the smile on a child’s face when they come in contact with God.  I am thankful to be apart of the VRCC family, where my faith has grown and continues to grow.
