Senior Pastor
E-mail Joe Warrington

My name is Joe R. Warrington, I was born on the island nation of Dominica, a small island surrounded by the Atlantic and Caribbean seas. At the age of 19 I received the Lord as my personal savior at a crusade conducted by a number of churches in our nation’s capital. I was called to preach the gospel one year later and enrolled at Caribbean Bible School. I later transferred to Circleville Bible College in 1976 and graduated in 1978 with a B.A. in Christian ministries. I moved to Jackson, Mississippi and completed a Masters degree in theology at Wesley Biblical Seminary.

The summer of my graduation I got married to Jackie, and we moved to Altadena, California to our first pastorate. We would spend twelve good years in California in pastoral ministries as well as graduate studies at Pepperdine University. In 1993, my family relocated to Colorado Springs where I joined the faculty at Nazarene Bible College. Jackie and I have three daughters: Jewel, Joy, and Jasmine. I also enjoy golfing, fishing, dominoes, and on some occasions play a little cricket.

My greatest joy is my relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. I am delighted to pastor the Grace Church family. We are a multicultural church with about eight different cultures. It would be a delight to hear from you and to share your greetings with the people of Grace Church. Please feel free to make us aware of your prayer needs. We are a church of prayer and we will lift you up before the Lord. Please be sure you have read and understand our Lord’s requirements for salvation. Do not hesitate to contact me if I can assist you in the ever important decision to accept the gift of salvation in the name of Jesus.
