Harold Summers became the Pastor of Grace Bible Church in March 2022 after serving as a member in various roles since 2009.
He moved to Homosassa from New Jersey in December 2008, where he pastored a church and spent many years with his wife, Carol, serving in a number of ministries, including as head coach in a Word of Life Olympians program. Most recently he served in the Church Ministries Department of a worldwide, Christian ministry to the Jewish people. He has visited Israel six times and has a deep love for the children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Harold’s passion is to honor the Lord by using his talents to preach and teach God’s Holy Word. His goal is to equip believers to follow God’s leading and plan for their lives. His favorite Scripture is Isaiah 40:31: “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
Pastor Summers earned his bachelor’s degree in Bible from Philadelphia College of Bible in 1994 and was ordained into the ministry in 2000.
The Summerses have been married for 42 years and have five children and four grandchildren. They enjoy camping and going “down to the shore,” as they say in New Jersey!
Harold and Carol are extremely excited and humbled that God has given them the great privilege of serving Him here at Grace Bible Church in Homosassa, Florida.
