Rev. Dr. Irwyn Ince serves as a pastor at Grace DC Presbyterian Church (, director of the newly formed Grace DC Institute for Cross-Cultural Mission (, and is the current Moderator of the PCA. The Institute is a church-based entity dedicated to equipping churches with the confidence and competence to welcome others the way Jesus welcomes us. Dr. Ince is a graduate of City College of NY (B.E.E.E, 1995), Reformed Theological Seminary (M.A.R., 2006), and Covenant Theological Seminary (D.Min., 2016). In January 2006, after an eleven year career with Motorola as a systems engineer and project engineering manager, he began full time ministry at Mount Zion Covenant Church in Bowie, MD. In January 2007 Mount Zion merged with New Town Church in Columbia to plant City of Hope Presbyterian Church, where he served as Senior Pastor from 2007-2017. He and his wife, Kim, have been married 27 years, and have four children (Jelani, Nabil, Zakiya, and Jeremiah). In addition to his passion for his family and for ministry, he is passionate about coffee and CrossFit. He has contributed to the books Heal Us Emmanuel: A Call for Racial Reconciliation, Representation, and Unity in the Church, and All Are Welcome: Toward a Multi-Everything Church.


The Institute for Cross-Cultural Mission has developed a comprehensive curriculum designed to train ministry leaders for effective cross-cultural engagement. 8 in 10 churches are made up of one predominant ethic group. They’re on a mission to change that.
