Apostle, Pastor, Evangelist, Teacher, Dr. Loretta Rich was raised and attended schools in the Washington, D.C. metro area. She attended the neighborhood Church, Beulah Baptist, in NE, Washington, DC. Loretta is an Alumni of Bowie University, also attending American University and Benedict College, SC. Majoring in Communications Media.
Dr. Loretta was Born Again, September 28, 1979, during a lunch break from work. Two years after being Saved, Sanctified and Filled with Holy Ghost, Dr. Loretta was released from Beulah to become a disciple of Rhema Christian Center in N.E., DC.
Loretta and her mother, Apostle, Dr. Lillie M Grier, received salvation in Jesus Christ, around the same time. With great excitement and joy, they began, right away to go where ever they could, as servants of the Most High God, to spread the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They traveled the highways, byways, and WTKK Radio in Virginia. Both Loretta, her mother and brother, Lincoln Grier became a traveling gospel singing team.
Dr. Loretta was licensed to Preach the Gospel in 1982, Ordained in the Five Fold Ministry in 1984. She was set apart (both times) by the Professors and Presbytery of Howard University School of Divinity, Dr. Etheridge, Dr. Diggs and Dr. Ashcraft, all of the H.U.’s Washington Saturday College.
Loretta served the local assembly in many capacities, laboring, as unto the Lord and not unto men. In June, 1986, after six years at Rhema Christian Center, she was called out by FATHER GOD, to establish what The LORD called, Grace & Mercy Ministries.
Apostle Loretta shared the call and vision of the Lord with her Mother, Apostle Grier who agreed to come on board. As a team, meeting in her mother’s home, Grace & Mercy Ministries came forth. Outreaches in radio, television, bible studies in high school with special guest as Nicky Cruz, nursing homes, shelters, prison, hospitals, The Back To School Jubilee for all age children & young college age adults.

2 Years Victory Christian College. Dr. Loretta Trained Cell Groups Leaders @ Hope Christian Church & (Loretta Attended 2 years @ Rhema Bible College).
Through many trails, tribulations, and weathering many storms, in 1995 the LORD, having already prepared Loretta (unbeknown to her then), to carry out HIS vision to establish a Bible College. The College was to equip the saints in obedience to the WORD, Living Above Reproach (Holy Living), and to License and Ordain those that were really called and chosen by Holy Spirit for Ministry. Thus, Grace & Mercy Ministries Bible College School of Evangelism and Ministry’s first class was formed. The LORD gave the vision and directives of every single aspect of the Bible College to Dr. Loretta, even down to the Graduation Songs. Apostle Grier was in the first class as Loretta taught. By HOLY GHOST Orchestration, Loretta followed GOD’s vision for the College. Apostle Grier learned and caught the vision and with Great Grace Upon Her Life, began helping to teach many of our graduates, Hallelujah!
Following the first class graduation, another bump in the road manifested. However in every storm, the LORD ultimately gets the glory. Loretta with transfer of credits received her Master’s Degree in Biblical Education. She went back to school for her Doctorate Degrees in Divinity, Theology, & DHL at the Breakthrough Bible College and Theological Seminary. Loretta, insisting that her mother and husband, who had worked & served with her in ministry should be presented before the College Board. Loretta did the required documentations & both husband and mother became recipients of Doctorate of Human Letter (DHL).
Dr. Loretta’s greatest desire is to show the love of JESUS CHRIST by feeding, disciplining, teaching and training HIS sheep through: Church Fellowship, Bible Study, Bible College, family & ministry conferences, radio, television, drama with a mission and several other evangelistic, outreach programs and projects. We are commissioned to “Go YE!” The LORD has instructed us to disciple, equip the saints for the work of HIS ministry, and to strengthen and encourage the youth. She believes as a team, all can live a life pleasing to the LORD by being fruitful and winning the lost souls for CHRIST, “At Any Cost”. Loretta’s covenant ministries are KCM & CDMA.
