I’m Grayson Leach and pictured with me is my wife Sandra. I am from Bethesda, Md. but have lived in the Norfolk/Chesapeake area most of my life. We have two daughter’s Jessica and Racheal and two sons-in-law Cory and EV. We have also been blessed by Racheal and EV’s two daughters Adalynn and Madilynn. I have been a Deacon, Senior Pastor, Associate Pastor, Worship Pastor, Church Planter and Special needs Pastor and advisor for Special Needs Ministry to the VBMB. I was fortunate to help found and start a Special Needs Ministry that is still going at 4 different local churches. I am an Ordained Minister and was ordained by The Bridge Network of Churches and Azalea Baptist Church. I love worship in music and look forward to what God has in store for us at Spurgeon. Spurgeon's task is to bring the lost to Jesus Christ. That has been on my heart. You will always hear honesty sometimes even when it’s hard from me. I look forward to visiting each of you and getting to know you. I love kids and adults, and the elderly (That’s everyone). This is one of the few times you will see me in a suit...
Aloha Norfolk! My name is Gabriel Vega and in the photo is my lovely wife of 15 years Tanya Vega. I’m an active duty Sailor and student at Eternity Bible College. My wife is a homeschooling mom (so she has like 20 jobs). We have two boys Zaylen (14) and Daxen (7) who always keep us on our toes. Before we arrived on the eastern shores of Virginia, we lived island life in Honolulu, HI for six years! During our time in Hawaii, we were able to center our hearts and focus around Jesus who taught us how to love, teach and care for His people, and most importantly share the Good News of the Gospel. When God called us out of Hawaii to the Norfolk area, we quickly fell in love with the people of Spurgeon Church. Becoming members, God revealed the needs to assist His church in different areas, which we gladly and willingly accepted. We’ve served in a variety of ministries ranging from Men’s, Women’s, Sound, Refreshments, Event Coordinator, and Small Group Leaders. At Spurgeon Church, Tanya and I run the Youth ministry where we dig deep in God’s word to grow their relationship with God. Separately, Tanya heads our events as Event Coordinator and I serve as a Deacon.
