Co-Pastor LaDoris Grimmett
FRW Detroit & Intercessor
LaDoris Grimmett has been called by the Lord to serve as Co-Pastor for FRW Detroit to do the work of the Lord in the name of Jesus; to feed the hungry both spiritually and physically, to walk in the prophetic, to war in the spirit as an intercessor, to lay hands on the sick and to minister to a hurting nation.
She was born and raised in Henderson, North Carolina, and Newark, New Jersey. The Lord has blessed her with two beautiful, talented, and educated young daughters; an awesome son-in-law who loves the Lord, and four beautiful grandchildren.
She joined the United States Air Force (U.S.A.F) in 1980 and was awarded an Honorable Discharge in 1992 after serving 12 years, and 4 months of active service. Her Air Force Specialty Code was Medical Administrative Specialist. This job in the U.S.A.F allowed her to travel to many states and foreign countries such as Switzerland, Italy, Greece, Germany, Istanbul, and Ankara Turkey. LaDoris enjoyed her career in the U.S.A.F. but the Lord had a bigger mission for me to fulfill. She was injured while on active duty. She had a head injury and a grand mal seizure at her job. After brain surgery, she spent 10 years in a wheelchair—many years using a wheelchair, then into a walker, then onto a cane. She totally surrendered her life to serve Jesus Christ, so she could fulfill whatever mission He had for her.
“In the military, we are called Airmen, yet now I am a Soldier on the battlefield for the Lord called to uphold the Blood-Stained Banner.” – Co-Pastor LaDoris
All of this led LaDoris to FRW to serve as a Missionary/Evangelist under the leadership of Apostle Sharon Johnson. I have traveled with Family Restoration Worldwide to several nations: Jamaica, London England (UK), Barbados, (Porta Plata) Dominican Republic (pleasure), and the Philippine Islands in May 2022. After this past mission to the Philippines, the Lord opened the door to fulfill greater heights in His work, as Co-Pastor to a new chapter: Family Restoration Worldwide Detroit.
