Lead Pastor

Joshua serves Grace City Church primarily through preaching and teaching, casting vision, and leading the pastoral team.  Joshua is originally from North Providence, RI, where he met his bride, Michelle.  They were married in 2005, moved to Charlotte, NC the following year, and began to grow their family. In March of 2016, the Lord called the Earls to Louisville, KY, where Joshua attended and graduated from the Sovereign Grace Pastor’s College.  The Earls then moved to Wilmington in May 2018 with their three children to help plant Grace City Church.  Several books that have impacted his life are Living the Cross-Centered Life by C.J.

Also a bivocational pastor, Jim serves Grace City Church by providing administrative support, overseeing the Financial Advisory Committee, overseeing the Sunday Gathering, and, along with his wife, Sharon, providing support for the other pastors and their families.
