Rodney Cripps became the Lead Pastor of GraceLife Church of Pineville in November of 2005 after serving as Pastor of Education & Children here since December 2003. Although born in Louisiana, he grew up in Ponca City, Oklahoma where he graduated high school. After earning a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Music Education from the University of Arkansas, he attended Dallas Theological Seminary and earned a Master of Arts in Christian Education with Honors in the Spring of 1998 and in May 2015 graduated with the Doctor of Ministry degree in Apologetics from Southern Evangelical Seminary.

One of Rodney’s passions is to make disciples who make disciples wherever he is, combined with his personal values of sharing a clear gospel message and teaching the Word line by line and passage by passage. Pastor Rodney has put his passion of making disciples in to action with mission trips to Mexico, Haiti, India, Europe, and throughout the United States.

Rodney has served in ministry for years in a variety of positions including: Music Minister of Crestview Baptist Mission in Ponca City, Oklahoma; Youth Minister at Rolling Hills Baptist Church in Fayetteville, Arkansas; Director of Christian Education and Youth at Lewisville Bible Church in Lewisville, Texas; Director of Student Activities of the International Institute in Lewisville, Texas; Assistant Pastor of Countryside Baptist Church in Stillwater, Oklahoma, and Pastor of Education & Children at Stough Memorial Baptist Church (now GraceLife Church of Pineville).
