Elder Leadership at FCC
Senior Pastor Josh Mangrum
Pastor Josh grew up in Fairview where he graduated High School in 1993. In 1996 he married the love of his life Joy, and together they have three wonderful children, sons Tristan and Fox and daughter, Autumn. Not yet feeling the call into the ministry Josh pursued a career in graphic design graduating from Nossi College of Art in 2000 with a Commercial Art Degree. It was during his time at Nossi, however, where Josh and Joy felt the call to minister to the Youth of Fairview Community Church.
In November of 2004, FCC offered Josh the position of Youth Pastor. It was an easy transition with him having already served in a similar capacity with FCC’s Youth since early 2000. Then, in the summer of 2013 Josh felt God leading him away from Youth ministry to the adult body of FCC. In 2017, after 17 years of Youth ministry, Josh became the Senior Pastor of Fairview Community Church.
Josh loves spending time with Joy, as well as playing video games and airsoft with his boys. He also loves spending time with with Autumn as well as Jeeping, and lifting weights. An avid sports fan, Josh enjoys and often suffers with the N.Y. Mets, the Washington Redskins (now Commanders) and the LSU Tigers. He also enjoys using his graphic design talents occasionally by creating graphics, promo materials, etc… for the various ministries of FCC.
Pastor Josh’s real passion is the opportunity to introduce folks to Jesus, which includes loving on, and encouraging them as well as assisting in the training up of every individual God sees fit to bring through the doors of Fairview Community Church.
Elder Emeritus & Retired Senior Pastor Mike Mangrum
Mike was born and raised in Middle Tennessee and is a veteran of the Tennessee National Guard. Along with his wife and two other couples, they answered God's call and founded Fairview Community Church with the first service on December 31, 1995 in house of Stephen & Cassandra Penick. FCC grew moving from the Penick’s home to the Lions Club building at the Fairview City Park, then to the Fairview High School and then to Westwood Elementary School on Highway 96 in Fairview. Due to several circumstances, in 2005, FCC purchased the building and property of our current location. Although Mike retired from the pulpit ministry as Senior Pastor at FCC, he still serves as an elder, teacher and
fills the pulpit on occasion. Mike has been blessed tremendously by his precious wife, Judy, to whom he has been married to over 50 years, and their three sons. One of God’s greatest blessings is that he has been succeeded in ministry at FCC by his eldest son, Josh who serves as Senior Pastor. Mike and Judy look forward to many more years of service to God through FCC.
