Patrick McGrew and his wife Charlotte planted Higher Praise Family Church of Fort Worth, TX, in January of 2001. The church’s mission is to “build families while bridging the gap between the Church and the community.” The church carries out this mission with an emphasis on the family, strong foundational and doctrinal teaching, life-changing preaching, and community outreach and activism. Higher Praise (“The Fam”) is an oasis of healing, city of refuge, and fountain of unconditional love.
Patrick has a B.A. in Psychology from Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi. In addition, he has two Master’s Degrees; Master of Divinity, from Oral Roberts University, and a Master of Business Administration. Patrick and Charlotte have two children; a son Patrick Jr. and a daughter Aria Janay.
Pastor Dwight McKissic says, “WOW!!! Pastor Patrick McGrew, by the grace and inspiration of God, has blessed the body of Christ and the Kingdom of God, with a devotional book that is biblical, practical, transformational, and inspirational. That is no small feat.”
