Grace Bible Church will welcome Ulysses Ross III as senior pastor (and his wife, Clarissa Ross) during an Installation Service 3-6 p.m. Sunday, October 25 at the church, 1912 Central Parkway in Florissant.

In the midst of an ever-changing world with challenging circumstances that occur, Grace Bible Church in St. Louis has begun a new and exciting chapter.

Please join Grace Bible Church in welcoming its new pastor, Ulysses Ross III, as senior pastor during an Installation Service from 3-6 p.m. Sunday, October 25 at the church, 1912 Central Parkway in Florissant.

Ross, an ordained and seasoned minister, has served God for more than 25 years in the teaching of the Gospel. He earned a bachelor of arts degree in business administration from Lincoln University in Jefferson City; a master’s degree in theology from Regent University, based in Virginia Beach, Virginia; and a master’s degree in business administration from Webster University in St. Louis. 

Next to Ross’ passion and commitment to the Lord, is his family. He and his wife, Clarissa, have five children and live in O’Fallon, Missouri.

Ross succeeds the founder and first Senior Pastor of Grace Bible Church Roderick Walker. Walker and his wife, Melanie, started the church in 1988. The couple has four children. Walker departed this life on February 2, 2019. 

Grace Bible Church’s vision is “Loving God, Loving People, Making Disciples.”
