DONNIEGRIGGS | MHC Lead Pastor
Donnie is the founding pastor of One Harbor Church. He is the primary preaching pastor and serves the church by providing leadership in vision, teaching, and pastoral care. Donnie is married to Jill, and is the proud father of two boys, Jedidiah Owen and Wyatt Jude. Donnie’s passion, among other things, is to see churches in small towns and rural areas equipped and empowered to radically engage culture and make disciples. In addition, he grew up in and around salt water and continues to pray that God would give him gills.
Bryan was ordained as an elder at One Harbor Church in October 2012. In addition to regular pastoral care, he is responsible for supervising many of the church programs, ensuring that the vision, direction and requirements set by the elders are implemented and carried out. Prior to joining the staff of One Harbor, Bryan served as a U.S. Marine. His experience in the Marine Corps centered around logistics, administration, and operations. He served in this capacity at Cherry Point, in Afghanistan, and aboard a US naval vessel in the Caribbean.
Before One Harbor, Jesse helped launch and grow a successful marketing research company then started his own company which is where he worked until it became evident that the time had come to sell the business and focus his time and talents solely as an elder. The transition was finalized on the 1st of October 2011 as he came on full-time. Jesse currently oversees Community Groups, Hospitality Teams, and generates much of the content you will find in our community group curriculum and online in digital articles. Jesse is married to Hayley and is a proud father of his three boys Asher, Riley, Rory, and daughter Sierra.

He is Carteret County born and bred, and has spent his entire life loving all that our coastal town has to offer. Eamon married his amazing wife Diana in 2010, and they now have 2 daughters, Trinity and Eleanor.

It is also a great way to fellowship with other women in the church, share life's ups and downs, pray with one another, and build each other up in the faith.

Reach Local is the local outreach initiative of One Harbor Church. As a church we exist all for the sake of the Gospel, and tangibly displaying God’s love is a vital part of that mission. Following the example of Jesus, we seek to identify the physical, spiritual, and relational needs of our neighbors and community and respond using a holistic, Gospel-centered approach. This can happen through community engagement such as supporting local events, responding to natural disasters, or assisting non-profits within our city. Additionally this can happen at the family or individual level through construction projects, financial assistance and counseling, moving assistance, and many other local service opportunities.
