In 2019, the Spirit of God called for the work of FRW to expand into Tampa, FL. This expansion has called for added travel, advocacy work in the community, and mentorship of God’s leaders in the work of the Kingdom. Since 2022, God has dearly impressed upon our hearts that His work assignment and anointing now calls for us to pour into this next, and new generation. To God Be the glory!!!

Pastor Roosevelt Johnson


After the call to salvation in 1978, Roosevelt was ordained as a deacon in the early days of COGIC in 1981. When God spoke to Roosevelt to make Sharon his wife, he chose to marry his life partner. He recalls how they ministered on teams together every weekend on the streets of downtown Detroit at Kennedy Square. Then God birthed soul winning into his heart. At the Families In Need Inner City House, Pastor Johnson was responsible for conducting the weekly 12-Step Alcoholics for Christ Recovery Program in partnership with Sobriety House Ministries from 1999-2004.

Both Pastors Roosevelt & Sharon have received a number of awards, for their community volunteer work at Scotts Women’s Correctional Facility, Salvation Army, and community-based organizations over the years. Pastor Roosevelt has served as Board President at community development non-profits that focus on children and families. It was during these times that FRW worked with homeless families that he was honored as an outstanding volunteer by Gleaners Community Food Bank – Detroit, MI in 2005.

Educationally, Pastor Johnson acquired a Master of Arts in Teaching at Wayne State University. He served primarily as a high school teacher for 22 years in the Detroit Public Schools – Community District. Becoming a teacher was his second full-time career after he completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Science from Siena Heights University. Before teaching, the highlight of his 20-year Design/Engineering career was being awarded a Patent (with two co-workers) for a Power Distribution Box Design in 1989.

Pastor Roosevelt has a strong work ethic, loves his family, and offers a wealth of wisdom and knowledge to this generation. In the New Tampa region, Pastor Roosevelt continues to work on the FRW Tampa ministry team within the community. Down through the years, our lives have been full and complete. There is never a dull moment as we continue in the work to balance our home, family, and ministry. We can surely say that God’s grace is sufficient for us.

This is a very sacred position in the Lord, and I serve Him with great sincerity. My head and heart are bowed down in humility knowing my life is not my own. The most important thing the Holy Spirit has placed in my spirit is to see our youth build a solid relationship with Christ. Teaching the word and training youth as God’s leaders gives me great fulfillment. Pastor Delores is a powerful vessel prophetically bringing a strong word from the Lord that draws the youth and their families closer to Him. She teaches God’s word to the youth and team leaders under her leadership. Pastor Dee as she is affectionately called started working as the Artistic Director for JPAC for young girls ages 7‐18 as a partner then created her own dance camps from 2004 until 2019. The Lord Jesus Christ expanded her vision to include dance worship for young men in 2010. She presently trains in dance, drama, and worship music for all ages. Teaching her craft in the community, and in the schools, while traveling throughout the U.S. and abroad. Naturally so, Pastor Dee teaches 4th graders in her local school system helping them improve their academics, social skills and learning values at every level. In August 2013, God sent a beautiful special needs foster son, named Demetrius who came into her life and is now 13 years old. Minister Delores, adopted him as her own son who has brought so much joy into her world as they both love to dance and worship God. The word reminds us all to “Delight thyself also in the Lord and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” Psalms 37:4 To God be the glory for the things that He has done!

Co-Pastor LaDoris Grimmett

FRW Detroit & Intercessor

LaDoris Grimmett has been called by the Lord to serve as Co-Pastor for FRW Detroit to do the work of the Lord in the name of Jesus; to feed the hungry both spiritually and physically, to walk in the prophetic, to war in the spirit as an intercessor, to lay hands on the sick and to minister to a hurting nation.

She was born and raised in Henderson, North Carolina, and Newark, New Jersey. The Lord has blessed her with two beautiful, talented, and educated young daughters; an awesome son-in-law who loves the Lord, and four beautiful grandchildren.

She joined the United States Air Force (U.S.A.F) in 1980 and was awarded an Honorable Discharge in 1992 after serving 12 years, and 4 months of active service. Her Air Force Specialty Code was Medical Administrative Specialist. This job in the U.S.A.F allowed her to travel to many states and foreign countries such as Switzerland, Italy, Greece, Germany, Istanbul, and Ankara Turkey. LaDoris enjoyed her career in the U.S.A.F. but the Lord had a bigger mission for me to fulfill. She was injured while on active duty. She had a head injury and a grand mal seizure at her job. After brain surgery, she spent 10 years in a wheelchair—many years using a wheelchair, then into a walker, then onto a cane. She totally surrendered her life to serve Jesus Christ, so she could fulfill whatever mission He had for her.

“In the military, we are called Airmen, yet now I am a Soldier on the battlefield for the Lord called to uphold the Blood-Stained Banner.” – Co-Pastor LaDoris

All of this led LaDoris to FRW to serve as a Missionary/Evangelist under the leadership of Apostle Sharon Johnson. I have traveled with Family Restoration Worldwide to several nations: Jamaica, London England (UK), Barbados, (Porta Plata) Dominican Republic (pleasure), and the Philippine Islands in May 2022. After this past mission to the Philippines, the Lord opened the door to fulfill greater heights in His work, as Co-Pastor to a new chapter: Family Restoration Worldwide Detroit.
