Marcia Henry-Day and her family (husband Carson and two children – Joseph and Zoe) have been attending FBC Griffin since October 2018. They joined our church in June 2019. Marcia has been in the process of discerning and pursuing a call to vocational chaplaincy. A native of Jamaica, Marcia has worked for FEMA in disaster relief before completing her Master of Divinity at Regent University in May 2019. She has worked as a volunteer chaplain for Brightmoor Hospice, completed a unit of Clinical Pastoral Education at Grady Trauma Center, and is currently a chaplaincy resident at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. She has also been deeply involved with members of FBC in the LifeSong ministry, soup kitchen, hospital visitation, and other various ministries.

As Marcia describes her calling, “Serving the broken and downtrodden and my faith community is at the heart of my calling. My experience in serving in the jails, the prison, recovery homes for addicts, hospice and hospitals settings have equipped me to serve where I believe I am called, trained and equipped. My desire is to serve God whole heartedly as I serve my family, this local church, this community and the nations.”

Marcia has met with both the Deacons and an Ordination Council made up of Rev. Steven Norris, Rev. Sarah Murray, Rev. Seth Brown, Bonnie Brown, Gail Hammock, Rev. Grady Caldwell, and Rev. Jack Landham. Both the Ordination Council and the Deacons unanimously recommend her to the church for ordination. As one member of the Ordination Council said, “It is clear that God has gifted and called Marcia to the work of ministry and we celebrate the opportunity to present her to the church to be considered for ordination. She is already a fine minister in our community and we are excited about the ways God is using her for the Kingdom.”
