Dr. Grimes is working to obtain a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling along with his wife Lady Rosalind Grimes. Dr. Grimes places an emphasis on the Kingdom of God and believes that the whole Bible, along with the message of Jesus Christ, revolved around the King of King’s and Lord of Lord’s. The citizen of that Kingdom called the bride of Christ which constitutes the church, each having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and not a religion. He has said, “My vision, is wrapped up in one statement: I AM anointed to transform followers into disciples’ of Jesus Christ through the power of the preached Word of God.
