Pastor Grimm Serves as Minister of the Day for the State
Nashville, Tenn. – Sen. Rusty Crowe (R-JohnsonCity) along with Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey (R-Blountville) welcomed Pastor Calvin Grimm of the Praise and Truth United Pentecostal Church as the Minister of the Day for the State Senate on Wednesday. The meeting of the Senate was marked by an opening prayer, led by Pastor Grimm.
In December 2000, Pastor Grimm and his family moved to Johnson City to establish the Praise and Truth United Pentecostal Church. Over the past six years, the church has seen steady growth.
Accompanying Pastor Grimm were Washington County students: Carrie Grimm, Matthew Grimm, Brian Layher, Haley Mitchell, Eddie Monboe, John Pilkington and Brooklyn Stallsmith. The students served as legislative pages on the Senate floor.
“Pastor Grimm’s prayer was very well received by all Senators,” said Crowe. “We are very proud to have him and the children join us in the Senate Chamber.”
