Hope Amid Fear

Dimetra Barrios was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Despite the challenges of the urban community she faced in her younger years, Dimetra was dedicated to staying in her home town of Brooklyn in order to witness the power of God move to provide change and hope. In the past, she worked for the Dodge YMCA, where she led an after school program, dance classes, and a gym class for high school students. Having a passion for understanding relationships and theology, Dimetra studied at Liberty University in the area of Psychology, Christian Counseling and Biblical Studies.

Currently, Dimetra is the Family Ministries Pastor at Trinity Grace Church Crown Heights, which is a multi-ethnic church parish in Brooklyn. She is also the co-director of the Crown Heights Summer Arts Camp. She and her husband have two children and they are looking forward to how God is going to continue to use them, as a family, to serve their community.
