Pastor Vincent E. Jordan, a native of St. Petersburg, Florida, serves as Senior Pastor-Teacher, Elder, and church planter of Grace Community Church, St. Petersburg. Pastor Jordan's secular education is in Computer Science (ERPII systems management), and he works full-time at an engineering space and defense manufacturing company in Tampa, Florida.
Pastor Jordan's biblical education includes his studies in the Exegetical Expository Preaching and Teaching Institute (E.E.P.T.I.) on the campus of Southside Tabernacle Baptist Church. In 1997, Pastor Jordan graduated from E.E.P.T.I. with honors in Biblical Studies and Greek Language, at which time he was asked to join the E.E.P.T.I. teaching staff as an instructor of New Testament Exegesis and Homiletics. A short time thereafter, Pastor Jordan was ordained as an Elder at Southside Tabernacle Baptist Church, where he served in various ministries and preaching opportunities for several years. In March of 2002, Pastor Jordan was called of the Lord Jesus to plant Grace Community Baptist Church [Grace Community Church, St. Petersburg].
Recognizing that the Bible is the very word of the Living God to man, and understanding the priority of knowing and obeying its truths, Pastor Jordan is truly an exegetical, expository pastor and teacher who is deeply committed to studying and teaching Scripture with diligence and authority. His central ministerial focus is the continuous imparting of biblical truth to the people of God that they may know God and serve Him in worship and ministry. As Proverbs 27:17 says that “Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another” -- Pastor Jordan has a genuine concern for discipling men of faith to be the man of God that God has called them to be.
Pastor Jordan has an adult daughter, Chelsey, who is married to her husband Isaac, III. They have two toddlers, Isaac, IV and Elliana.
Pastor Jordan and his wife Natasha have three young daughters - Kieley, Katelyn, and Khloé, whom his wife homeschools. Natasha, a native of Jacksonville, Florida, graduated from Tuskegee University with a degree in Biology, and currently serves in various ministries at Grace Community Church, St. Petersburg.
