Pastor H. Eugene Collier serves as the Senior Pastor of Grace Family Worship Center, located in Troy, Ohio. Pastor Eugene accepted the responsibility of the Pastorate in April, 2014 after many years of running from the calling placed upon his life. It was at that time he asked the Lord to fill him with a “servant’s heart” and remove that running spirit in his life that many of us have experienced.
Pastor Eugene received the “blessing of Pastorate” from his parents the late Suffragan Bishop Howard Collier and Lady Alberta Collier. The mantel was passed just before Suffragan Bishop Howard Collier’s transition to glory. Pastor Eugene went on to pursue his Pastoral license with the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World in 2015. He has also earned his Master’s degree in Ministry from the Ohio Christian University.
Pastor Eugene served our country in the U.S. Army. He married his beautiful wife and partner in ministry Evangelist Trina Collier. Together they have six beautiful children and three grandchildren.
Pastor Eugene has a heart for reaching the world. He also believes that showing people the love of Christ begins in one’s own home and local community. He embraces the basic Pentecostal Assemblies of the World doctrine but strongly believes “there is only one true church and that is the body of Christ which is not restricted to any one denomination”.
Evangelist Trina D. Collier received the Holy Ghost at the young age of 14 at the “Hallowed Hills” Ohio District Council Campgrounds. She was a member of the Church of Jesus in Piqua, OH under the leadership of the late Suffragan Bishop Howard Collier. She served faithfully as Sunday School Superintendent, Sunday School teacher, Choir Director, and Praise & Worship leader. Though gifted in many areas, she was always willing to assist wherever needed.
Trina accepted her call to ministry in 2002. She was nurtured through the mentorship of the late Suffragan Bishop Howard Collier and briefly under the leadership of Pastor Brian Hamilton. In 2008 God had laid it upon her heart to follow Bishop Collier and make her home with Grace Family Worship Center.
Evangelist Collier currently holds a Master’s Degree in Education as well as a Master’s Degree in Christian Leadership. She is employed as a 2nd grade teacher with the Trotwood City School system where she has taught for over 22 years. Evangelist Collier is also an ordained minister with the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World and serves as Co-Pastor alongside her husband at Grace Family Worship Center.
