Pastoral Leadership

Alexander Redd (Th.D)

Founder & Lead Minister - Gracious Hope Bible Fellowship (GHBF)

Meet Pastor Alexander Redd, a remarkable Christian theologian and the founder and lead minister of Gracious Hope Bible Fellowship (GHBF). His inspiring journey began in 2009 when he wholeheartedly accepted Christ Jesus as his Lord and Savior. Guided by his unwavering faith, Pastor Redd embarked on a mission to establish a teaching ministry, starting with sharing the gospel message online in 2016. This vision eventually led to the founding of the Gracious Hope Bible Fellowship ministry, which obtained legal rights to exercise religious liberties under US state law on April 30, 2021.

Pastor Redd's dedication to his spiritual growth and calling is evident in his educational achievements. He completed his doctoral studies in theology and apologetics at Christian Bible Seminary in 2014. Seeking further development in leadership and a deeper understanding of biblical Greek, he pursued coursework at Cornerstone Bible Seminary in Vallejo, California, in 2017. In late 2018, he also completed pastoral counseling at Liberty University in Virginia, honing his skills in providing guidance and support to those in need.

Before his divine calling into the Bible teaching ministry, Pastor Redd was a guidance counselor in various school districts. He served the Oakland and Berkeley United School Districts in California and the Carson City School District in Nevada. In 2003 and 2006, he achieved a Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology, a double Bachelor of Arts in Communication Arts and Political Science, and a Certificate in Criminal Justice from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

However, Pastor Redd's journey has not been without its trials and tribulations. As a former Liberian journalist, he experienced firsthand the harsh realities of political persecution. In December 1997, while investigating the politically motivated murder of a local politician and their family, he was kidnapped and subjected to physical torture by Liberian government security officers. Unjustly accused of treason and inciting public protest against the government, he was imprisoned by government prosecutors.

Fortunately, the court dismissed these baseless charges. Faced with numerous death threats and fearing for his life, Pastor Redd fled Liberia and sought refuge in the United States of America in early 1998. Before his departure, he had been a respected host of the popular political talk show "Sunrise" at Ducor radio station in Liberia. It is worth mentioning that Pastor Redd's late parents were Baptist ministers, instilling a solid foundation of faith and service in him.

Pastor Alexander Redd continues to inspire and uplift others today through his ministry and teachings at Gracious Hope Bible Fellowship. His unwavering faith, perseverance, and commitment to truth and justice testify to the power of God's love and the human spirit.

Under Pastor Redd's leadership, Gracious Hope Bible Fellowship has grown into a thriving community of believers passionate about studying and applying God's Word. Through their various programs and ministries, they aim to impact their local community and beyond positively.

One of the key aspects of Pastor Redd's teaching is his emphasis on the importance of personal transformation through faith in Christ. He believes true spiritual growth is about acquiring knowledge and experiencing a deep and meaningful relationship with God. Pastor Redd encourages his listeners to seek God's guidance and to allow His love and grace to transform their lives.

In addition to his work at Gracious Hope Bible Fellowship, Pastor Redd is also involved in various outreach initiatives. He regularly visits local prisons and detention centers, sharing the message of hope and redemption with incarcerated people. His heart for the marginalized and forgotten is evident in his commitment to providing practical support and guidance to individuals struggling with addiction, homelessness, and other challenges.

Pastor Redd's teachings have also had a global impact, as his online ministry reaches people from all walks of life and different parts of the world. Through his virtual sermons, daily devotionals, theological articles, and teachings, he has touched the lives of countless individuals seeking spiritual guidance and encouragement in Christ.

Despite the success and recognition that Pastor Redd has achieved, he remains humble and attributes all glory to Christ Jesus. He firmly believes his calling is not about personal gain or recognition but serving God and His people. Pastor Redd's genuine love for others and unwavering commitment to the Gospel have made him a beloved figure in the Christian community.

As Pastor Redd continues to follow God's leading, he is excited about the future of the Gracious Hope Bible Fellowship. He envisions expanding their outreach efforts and establishing partnerships with other churches and organizations to have an even greater impact on their community. Pastor Redd's passion for sharing the love of Christ and his dedication to helping others grow in their faith serves as an inspiration to all who know him.
