Ramone W. Griffith, DMin

Dr. Ramone W Griffith is the eldest son of Wendell and Marcia Griffith. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York but was flavored by the cultural seasonings of his parents’ home island of Barbados. By the grace of God, in his educational journey, Pastor Griffith earned two Bachelor of Arts degrees in Theology (Pastoral Ministry) and Music (Vocal Performance), and a Master of Arts degree in Religion with an emphasis in Metropolitan Ministry, all from Washington Adventist University in Takoma Park, Maryland. Most recently, he earned a Doctor of Ministry degree from the Howard University School of Divinity in Washington, D.C. He is married to the former Cavena Williams, an Elementary School educator. Pastor Griffith is an avid New York Yankee fan; His life’s motto is “What am I living for? and what am I dying for? are the same question.”
