Shaun Minnix: Lead Pastor

Pastor Shaun brings a unique perspective to helping people learn the Biblical truth of salvation. Shaun was born and raised in a Jehovah’s Witness home and didn’t hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ until he was a young man. At eighteen, Shaun accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior, leading him on a path to dedicate his life to God’s work. His passion for sharing the Gospel and God's Word led him to start New Horizon Baptist Church in Roanoke, VA in October 2011. In the summer of 2017, God led pastor Minnix to consolidate New Horizon with Grace Baptist Church to form New Grace Baptist Church.
