|Dr. Estelle Gross Cyrus, Executive Director|
Dr. Estelle E. Gross, International Bible Teacher, serves as pastor of Grace Church of the Nazarene, and Executive Director of "Right Way" Ministries International, Inc. Born and raised in the inner city of Baltimore, Maryland, Dr. Gross learned how to live with the basic necessities. Her early exposure to the Christian faith was obtained through John Wesley Methodist Church. She accepted Christ as Savior around the age of 10. In April 1997, she was ordained an Elder in the Church of the Nazarene.
In July 1998, Dr. Kenneth Mills, District Superintendent of the Washington District of the Church of the Nazarene, asked Dr. Gross to help at Grace Church because they were without a pastor. Under God's leadership, Dr. Gross accepted the call to pastor Grace Church in September 1998. The Church has tripled in size, and the members are becoming more involved in the up-building of God's kingdom. There are four evangelistic outreach teams, which are assigned one Saturday a month.
The members of Grace are delighted with their pastor's involvement on the Washington District. Dr. Gross serves on the Board of Williamson Bible Institute, the Board of Ministerial Credentials, and the District Advisory Board.
Dr. Gross is the Executive Director and founder of "Right Way" Ministeries International, Inc. Since founding this ministry in October 1983, she has ministered in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, the Caribbean, and across the United States. Dr. Gross has conducted Women's and Pastor's & Wive retreats. She has held revival services on the Southwest Indian District of the Church of the Nazarene in New Mexico, Needles, CA, Arizona, and in Kent, WA.
Dr. Gross is always willing to make herself available to the body of Christ, and considers it a privilege to be asked to minister the Word of God.
