The Grimké Name

Francis James Grimké (1850–1937)—a former slave—faithfully pastored 15th Street Presbyterian Church in Washington D.C. for over five decades. Grimké embodies the model theologian—one who displays a love for Christ through a life of ordinary, faithful ministry in the local church.


What We Believe

Grimké College holds to the creedal and confessional history of the church as expressed in the Protestant Reformation and the church planting movements that issued from it. Sepcifically, we hold to the Acts 29 Distinctives & Values and the Foundation Documents of the Gospel Coalition.
