Justin Pope


The importance of developing a strong walk with Christ was instilled in Justin at a young age. He was born in Memphis, TN but later moved with his family to Ramsey, NJ where Grace Baptist quickly became his church home. His participation in youth programs and engaging in strong fellowships allowed his relationship with Christ to continue to grow.

Justin earned his Bachelor’s degree from Messiah College. The environment at the school encouraged further development in his spiritual life, and answered many questions so that he was able to claim the faith as his own.

Years later he met Desaraye, the love of his life! She soon became part of the Grace Baptist family and was baptized some time after. The two were happily married on April 23, 2016. Always looking to serve and grow within the church, Desaraye supports her husband in his deacon ministry.
