He is Going to be a Pastor One Day!

Pastor Grayson was called to the ministry at a very young age. When he was only six years old, he received the word of his calling from the Lord while helping an elderly woman board the bus in Philadelphia, PA. The woman proclaimed to his mother, “He is going to be a pastor one day. You watch and see!”

Something Better to Come

Pastor Grayson was also given a prophesy from International Mission’s Director Elder Sharon Alston which proclaimed that he would be the next Pastor in the Northeast Jurisdiction.  This exhortation was only the beginning of something better to come.

Still Continues to Bear Fruit
