Grady Smith

Grady Smith

Preaching, Evangelism, & Visitation

Grady Smith came to Northeast in the summer of 1982. He has an undergraduate degree from Lipscomb University and a Master’s degree in Theology from Cincinnati Christian University. While time has passed and times have changed, the focal point of his work remains the same: a Christ-centered ministry & message.

He continues to enjoy his responsibilities in the pulpit and classroom, and is extremely happy to be a part of a church family that places such a high priority in service and outreach to others, locally and globally. "Northeast’s strengths are many," he says, "but one of our most valued treasures is our people. We are blessed with so many Christ-like volunteers. Christ working and serving through this diverse group of people is a beautiful thing to behold."

Nick Hutchens

Nick Hutchens

Youth Minister

Nick joined the staff of Northeast in 2015 after serving as a minister for the past 16 years in Murray, Kentucky. As youth minister, Nick hopes to empower students to live a life in pursuit of Jesus and to make a difference in the world around them. He is also a strong believer that parents are the greatest influence in the spiritual lives of their children, and he strives to partner with families and collectively impact the students' faith development.

Nick holds a Bachelor's degree in biology from the University of Tennessee at Martin and has worked toward a Master's in Aquatic Ecology at Murray State University. After becoming a youth minister in 1999, Nick finished his Master's in Bible from Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN.

Nick is married to Meredith Warren Hutchens. Meredith is currently a stay-at-home mom and homeschool teacher to their daughters, Jenna (9) and Grace Anne (5). She holds a Bachelor's degree and Master's degree in Education from Murray State University.
