D. Tyler Grimes and his wife, Dorothy, are the founding pastors of DPSMI. They uniquely minister together and are considered a dynamic duo. D. Tyler and Dorothy are the proud parents of two children, Atiba and Patrice, and live in the Northern Virginia area where DPSMI began in 2000. They served for nearly 20 years in the helps ministry as Sunday school teachers and care group cell leaders, as well as within the youth ministry before God called them to parent a Joshua generation.
Pastor D. Tyler’s heart is to see families renewed, restored, and revived back to their original state of being, which is in the Kingdom of God. When God spoke to their hearts saying “launch into the deep”, He gave Pastor D. Tyler the vision of the DOUBLE! As an Apostle, he has made it his mission to teach God’s people how to experience the double in every area of their lives! Through God’s help he is raising a body of believers to defeat the spirit of racism, poverty, and religion traditions.
Pastor Dorothy’s heart has always been one of intercessory/corporate prayer and for every person to experience the unconditional Love of God! She has the ability to go in and out of heaven and through her dedication to God, she is able to penetrate the hearts of every person she meets and share an encounter from God. Called to be a Prophet she truly is a gift to every person she comes in contact with!
God has instructed Pastor D. Tyler and Dorothy Grimes to preach and teach His Word with simplicity, understanding and LOVE! They are a tag team, bringing God’s Word to the whole man; spirit, soul and body!
