Best Pastor/Spiritual Leader: Jim Graff

Best Pastor/Spiritual Leader: Jim Graff

Being a pastor is Jim Graff's life, not even a job.

Graff was voted the best pastor and spiritual leader in the Crossroads by Advocate readers. He said the win belongs to the congregation and the Lord.

"The joy in my life is really to nurture the God-given potential that people have," he said.

Graff moved to Victoria 24 years ago from western Pennsylvania. When his church, Faith Family, began, it was near the Victoria Regional Airport and had about 200 people in the congregation.

Today, more than 4,000 people enter Faith Family every week for church services.

"It's growing well," he said. "I'm honored that people have given me this opportunity."
