Campus Pastor-Fort Wayne Campus
My name is Eric Grimes and I’m honored to serve as Campus Pastor for Summit Church Fort Wayne. I love helping people win in life. I am blessed to be able to help the vision of Summit Church come to pass and am excited about the worldwide impact that is just over the horizon.
I was born and raised in Columbia, SC. After graduating from high school, I joined the Army where I was stationed at Fort Hood in Killeen, TX. There I met a loving, compassionate, independent woman named Tomeka. On July 14, 1994, I made one of the best decisions of my life; I married her! One year after our marriage we moved to Fort Wayne, Indiana where she grew up. There we joined Summit Church and the foundation for my spiritual walk was laid.
At Summit I was taught the Word of God in a way that it could be applied immediately. One of the things I learned and keep near to me is “no matter what, stand and continue to stand”. So for 13 years we stood on the Word for our son and on February 17,2008, he was born and God began to really move in my life.
