Senior Pastor Eric Graffam


My wife Sarah and I were married in June of 1987 and God has blessed us with one son and four daughters. I attended Trinity Bible College in Ellendale, North Dakota and earned a B.A. degree in ministerial and Bible. We have been serving as full time Assemblies of God Pastors for nearly 19 years. We have had the awesome privilege of witnessing some powerful moves of the Holy Spirit. We have seen many people come to Christ and we have witnessed many who have received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and we have seen God miraculously heal people. Before being called to pastor in Raytown, my wife and I pastored in Lancaster, South Carolina for 9 years. Before that, we pastored in Proctorsville, Vermont for 8 years.
We believe God has opened the door for us to come to First Assembly of God Raytown. We, along with this wonderful body of believers, are excited about what God is doing in our midst. What we are experiencing at First assembly of God Raytown is nothing less than a genuine Pentecostal move of the Holy Spirit. One of things God has put on my heart is to earn My M-DIV, and and at some point to teach and help others prepare themselves for the call God has on their life. However, at this point God has given my wife and I a burden for Raytown, to have part in God raising this church up to be a great church, fully prepared for all that God desires to do in and through First Assembly of God Raytown.
