Sovereign Grace Leadership

Our Servant Leadership

Because of God’s kindness to us, He has given us men and women who love Jesus, are full of the Holy Spirit, and maintain a good standing in the community. Each of them seeks to serve the Body of Christ and our community in the manner in which God has gifted them to serve.

Our Elders

Pastor Brandon Tucker

Oversees Family Life Ministries and Stewardship
Pastor Brandon experienced the kindness of God that lead him to repent and place his hope in Jesus Christ at an early age. He married Jenny on December 22, 2001 and they have 3 boys; Hudson, Scout and Carter (twins). Brandon teaches and coaches at Evangelical Christian School. He is a pastor-teacher at Sovereign Grace Church.
"I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me." (Galatians 2.20)

Pastor B.J. Maxwell

Oversees Expository Preaching 

Pastor B.J. grew up a “church kid” in a strong Christian home.  After fifteen years as a false convert, God saved him during his senior at Christian Brothers University.  He spent a few years in public accounting and suckered Amy into marrying him in 1997 (she’s still falling for the ruse).  Shortly thereafter God compelled them toward vocational pastoral ministry.

They moved to Louisville, KY where he earned a Master of Divinity from Southern Seminary in 2003.  He then pastored churches in Ohio, Texas, and Tennessee.  B.J. joined the eldership of SGC in August 2018, concentrating on preaching and teaching.  

He and Amy adopted four children along the way: Lydia (Lidi), Byron (Chico), Abigail (Abs), and Jesse (J-Man).  That explains his gray hair, by the way.  

“Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching; persevere in these things, for as you do this you will ensure salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you” (1 Tim 4.16).


"for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work, for His good pleasure." (Philippians 2.13)

Pastor Tom Metcalf

Oversees Missional Living and Church Administration
With John Newton I agree, "I am a great sinner, and Christ is a great Savior." I can only thank God for His mercy and grace in giving me His Son Jesus Christ and His Spirit. It is my desire to lead my wife, children, grandchildren, and all whom the Lord gives us at Sovereign Grace Church, to follow Jesus.

"For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain" (Philippians 1.21)
