“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”
Minister Grier is the last of his parent Richard Grier Sr and Pastor Alice Martin. He accepted Jesus Christ at a young age. He was born and attended the B.M. Oakley Memorial Church under the leadership of the late Pastor Irene A. Oakley. There he was prayed over and anointed to play the drums since the age of 2. He travelled the world alongside his god mother Pastor Maria Langston (Gardner) playing for her as she ministered. He served there until his late teenage years.
He then traveled playing for different artists such as Chico Robinson and God’s Chosen, the Cousins, and his sister Tia Pittman as their Minister of Music. He enjoyed music and playing but he knew there was a calling over his life for ministry. In his twenties he joined his mom’s church Voice of Praise Worldwide Ministries to help and support through music. Prior to joining his mother’s church, he attended Peaceful Community Baptist church under Bishop Lloyd Cartwright Jr for several years. While he was there, he gave his trial sermon and received his license as a minister.
After leaving his mother’s church he helped his godfather Apostle Bruce Lester, Voice of Hope Church, as his Minister of Music. There he was challenged not just in music, but ministry as well. He served him for one year and a half. After being with his godfather he was recommended for a position as MD for Healing Balm Ministries. He went to the interview and the Pastor Jospeh Purnell and his wife were very pleased with him. With the blessing of his mother and godfather he accepted the position. While being here the Lord gave him Clarion Call Ministries, in which his mission is to minister to those who desire to experience God through music and worship in a unique way. After being employed there for over a year he decided to join. He is now using his gifts and anointing to not just play but to minister.
He is humbled by the opportunity to work with so many famous Pastors and artists and appreciates the support he receives for his own ministry. He has also managed to own his own production company called RVG Productions in which he has produced for Minister Chris Graham, Porsha Mitchell, Chico Robinson, Tia Pittman, DJ Harris and Pastor Kemley Whiteside. Minister Grier extends himself as a vessel of praise and worship, being used to charge and change any atmosphere he is in.
Minister Grier is a proud father of six children, Caleb, Hannah, Joshua, Rachel, Zion and Amari.
