Meet Our Pastor


L. Dawayne Graves & his wife Bri

Being a native of the central valley, Pastor Graves has a burden for our city, and wants to see as many people trust Christ as Savior and discipled as possible.


Dawayne was called to full time service under the ministry of Faith Baptist Church of Bakersfield,  CA. He earned a Biblical studies diploma through Heartland Baptist Bible College.  In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and children and attending local theatrical productions. Pastor Graves is married to his beautiful wife Brianne (Bri) since November of 2000. 


Pastor Graves' desire is to see Crossview Baptist Church grow in grace and reach Tulare and surrounding communities and regions beyond with the gospel of Jesus Christ!
