Michael A. Griswold (affectionately called Grizzy) is a native of Kansas City, MO and has been a member of Macedonia Baptist Church since March 1, 2007. Grizzy was ordained as a deacon in September of 2012.

He went on Macedonia’s first international mission trip to Kosice, Slovakia in 2012. In 2013, he went to Grand Goave, Haiti where he built houses from the rubble for families who houses were destroyed by the most devastating earthquake in the history of Haiti. These experiences strengthened his walk with God and caused him to be more intentional with serving his church family not only in his home town but all across the world.


Grizzy's goal in life is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone that he encounters.  Michael (Grizzy) is well known for starting his prayers by quoting scriptures. His motto is “man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.”


Michael (Grizzy) is married to Venus Griswold and is the proud father of four wonderful children: Mi'Keycia, Myaun, Tristan and Michael Jr.
