Michael Grooms


Michael has been the pulpit minister at Willow Avenue since 2023. He and his wife, Stacey, quickly meshed into our family here at Willow. Michael brings deep knowledge and relatable messages to the congregation at Willow each week.

Along with his regular lessons, Michael also teaches smaller bible classes on Sundays and is always thrilled to have personal bible studies with members and non-members alike.
