Our Leadership

Ministry Team


Serving under our elders is a team of dedicated ministers who are passionate about teaching and caring for our congregation and community.

Pulpit Minister

Jeff Grisham

Jeff and his lovely wife, Staci have been a part of this church family since 1998 and began working as our full-time youth minister in 2010. After finishing his degree in Bible and Ministry at Harding University, Jeff has continued to serve as one of our preaching ministers. He and Staci have 3 sons, Luke, Josh, and Matt, a beautiful daughter-in-law, Sidney, and 2 wonderful grandchildren. Following Jesus and learning more about how to be more like Him, and passing that along to others is a passion for Jeff.

College/Young Families Minister

Cory Spruiell

Cory joined the Bella Vista church family in October 2021 after several years in the Cabot area as an associate minister at Cabot Church of Christ and the director of a CASA program. He is married to Ashley and they have two kids. He graduated with a degree in Bible and Religion from Harding University in 2012 and a master of arts in theology from Harding School of Theology in 2020. Cory loves seeing the impact a local church can have on its community.

Youth Minister

Parker joined Bella Vista as their youth minister in June 2019 shortly after marrying Abby. Parker and Abby love being at the Bella Vista congregation and living in Northwest Arkansas. Parker enjoys working with, teaching, and learning from teens as they strive to live out the gospel day by day. In his spare time, you'll catch Parker on a hike or climbing a rock.
