Pastor Grosvenor is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha, National Action Network, 100 Black Men of America, and is a board member of Austin Black Fund. He has contributed to several books and articles on ministry and population health. Grosvenor is a voracious reader, and a believer in community relationships that transcend denominational lines, which has been a hallmark of his ministry. For four years, Pastor Grosvenor pastored in Alabama, where spiritual and numerical growth took place. Since 2018, he has served as the Senior Pastor of Alpha Seventh-day Adventist Church in Austin, Texas. He is joyfully married to the Dr. Crystal Joi Grosvenor, a physician.
Pastor Grosvenor is also the Chief Diversity Officer for the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation, a global population health research organization based at the University of Washington in Seattle that seeks to improve health worldwide by providing rigorous and reliable data, analysis, and evaluations to policymakers, researchers, ministries of health, and the public. This is done through the Global Burden of Disease (GBD), which is the most comprehensive worldwide observational epidemiological study.
Pastor Grosvenor has a passion for counseling, and seeing all people reach their full potential through Christ. He lives by the phrase “We ought not strive to be known as great preachers, but we aught strive to be known as one whom when we preach, people realize how great the gospel is.”
