Justin Graves serves as Area Director for Jones and Covington Counties and Campus Director at Jones Junior College.  But, if you ask the coaches and athletes in his area, they would say he's the "FCA Guy."  

A 2007 graduate of West Jones High School, Justin continued his education at JCJC before transferring to Mississippi College where he earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Christian Studies and Philosophy.  While attending MC, Justin served in Inner City Jackson with FCA as an Intern for one year and two years as a Part-Timer.

In 2011, Justin and his wife Casey moved back home to Jones County.  They now live in Ellisville with Addaleigh, their 5 year old daughter.

Justin has served on FCA staff for 5 years in Jones County.
