Through many trails, tribulations, and weathering many storms, in 1995 the Lord, having already prepared Loretta (unbeknown to her than), to carry out His vision to establish a Bible College. The College was to equip the saints in obedience to the Word, Living Above Reproach (Holy Living), and to License and Ordain those that were really called and chosen by Holy Spirit for Ministry. Thus, Grace & Mercy Ministries Bible College School of Evangelism and Ministry’s first class was formed. The Lord gave the vision and directives of every single aspect of the Bible College to Dr. Loretta, even down to the Graduation Songs. Apostle Grier was in the first class as Loretta, by Holy Ghost Orchestration followed God’s vision for the school. Apostle Grier learned and caught the vision and with Great Grace Upon Her Life, began teaching many of our graduates, Hallelujah!
Following the first class graduation, another bump in the road manifested. However in every storm, the Lord ultimately gets the glory. Loretta with transfer of credits received her Master’s Degree in Biblical Education. She went back to school for her Doctorate Degrees in Divinity, Theology, & DHL at the Breakthrough Bible College and Theological Seminary. Loretta, insisting that her mother and husband, who had worked & served with her in ministry should be presented before the College Board. Loretta did the required documentations & both husband and mother became recipients of Doctorate of Human Letter (DHL).
Dr. Loretta’s greatest desire is to show the love of Jesus Christ by feeding, disciplining, teaching and training His sheep through: Church Fellowship, Bible Study, Bible College, family & ministry conferences, radio, television, drama with a mission and several other evangelistic, outreach programs and projects. We are commissioned to “Go YE!” The Lord has instructed us to disciple, equip the saints for the work of His ministry, strengthen and encourage the youth. She believes as a team, all can live a life pleasing to the Lord, being fruitful and winning the lost souls for Christ at any cost. As with her covenant ministry CDMA, they are making a mark that cannot be erased. Because the MARK THEY PRESS TOWARD IS CHRIST JESUS. HALLELUJAH!
