Associate Pastors












Grace Apostolic Church Associate Pastors have an intergral role in the life of the ministry and its members.  These men and women lead a diverse group toward holiness, service and an intimate relationship with God.  Leadership, trustwortiness and prayer are the pillars on which they stand. 















Elder Al Brown

John A. Brown Jr. has been a member of Grace Apostolic Church for 33 years.  Affectionately known as Al, he is the son of Pastor John A. and Ernestine Brown (both deceased) of Flint, Michigan.   Al is the eldest of four siblings who grew up under the tutelage of District Elder Booker T. and First Lady Scott of Bethlehem Temple in Flint.  Saved at a young age, Al was always busy in the church working on the bulletin staff and playing the piano for the youth choir.  He loves music!  Al graduated from General Motors Institute (now Kettering University) and also received his Masters Degree in Business Administration from Indiana Wesleyan University. 


Upon his arrival in Indianapolis some 33 years ago, Al has been busy working both inside and outside the walls of Grace Church.  He is a carpenter by trade and a builder of the kingdom at all times.  He is passionate about winning souls and helping people get to know Jesus and the love that He has for them through the Word.  While his love for people is great, he is passionate about teaching young people and leading them into true relationship with their Savior.


Al enjoys music, working out, helping out and spending time with his family, his wife of 33 years LouWanna, two adult children Ashley and Aaron and his two granddaughters.

Elder Reginald Golder

Associate Pastor Elder Reginald B. Golder, Sr. was born September 1, 1955 to Carleton R. Golder, Sr. and Patricia J. Golder.  He was the 6th child of 7 siblings.  Later, at the age of 10, a brother passed away.  Pastor Golder has a godly heritage being that his maternal and paternal grandparents were Spirit-filled believers.  He was exposed to Holiness as a way of life early in his life and served under the tutelage of his uncle, the beloved Honorable Bishop Morris E. Golder until his demise, July 22, 2000.  It was thought that one or more of the children in his family would be called to the ministry, however, it was never thought to be Pastor Golder because of his bashful nature.  At the age of 15, God led Pastor Golder along with his younger sister to receive the indwelling of the Holy Ghost on the same day in November of 1974.  Thus, the beginning of his new birth and life of walking with the Lord.


After a short period of dating and engagement, with God's leading, Pastor Golder married his best friend, Lady Brenda from Grand Rapids, MI on August 1, 1981.  They are the parents of 3 sons, one surrogate daughter, 2 granddaughters, 4 grandsons and 1 surrogate grandson.  Spending time with his family and close friends has always been a priority.


After several years of striving to live a saved life, Pastor Golder was chosen to be chairman of the Grace Apostolic Church Young People's Auxiliary and held this position for many years with many first-time accomplishments.  To name a few, the Grace Youth Choir and Youth Bible Class were birthed during his tenure. All along Pastor Golder's walk with the Lord, God was dealing with him about the call to ministry.  He acknowledged his calling and enrolled in Aenon Bible College graduating with a degree in Theology in 1988 at The Pentecostal Assemblies of the World Convention in Philadelphia, PA.  At the ABSA Indiana State Council, in the year 2000, he was ordained as Elder at Grace Apostolic Church.  Shortly after ordination, Evangelist Pamela Thomas chose Pastor Golder to assist her with a weekly Adult Bible Class.  This proved to be a tremendous experience from which Pastor Golder grew in the knowledge of God's word! 


He went on to serve as Chairman of the Ministerial Alliance for 7 years, relinquishing this position at the Lord's leading to assume the teaching assignment along with Lady Brenda, for the weekly Marriage Builders Class during Sunday School.  This class has been an awesome blessing not only to them but to many who have attended over the past 10 years to date.  God has truly ordered the steps of this chosen man of God who is destined to do greater works in the Kingdom of God.


Pastor Golder was elevated and consecrated as Associate Pastor of the Grace Apostolic Church Marriage and Family Ministry on January 25, 2015 by Sr. Pastor Kevin M. Harrison, Sr.  He welcomes the opportunity to continue serving in this capacity as God honors his faithfulness to the calling on his life.  To God be the glory!
