Who we are

Meet your Pastors


Corey Barnes and Rashema have three children and one granddaughter. Corey, a graduate of St. Mary’s Seminary Ecumenical Institute, holds a Masters in Church Ministries with a concentration in Pastoral Care, and a Masters in Special Education. After ten years as a teacher and administrator in Baltimore City Schools, he served as a Senior Director in the largest public-private partnership in Maryland history. Corey would love to meet up for coffee or whatever and get to know you, corey.barnes@gracecitybaltimore.org !

Bob Bingham is married to Sue, and they have three very cool adult children with two grandsons, a granddaughter and counting.  Bob, with a Masters of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and a doctorate in Marriage and Family, has a long career in ministry, business, non-profits, and is the founder and president of a city-based counseling and consulting firm.  Have coffee with him and ask him to tell you about it, rcbingham@gracecitybaltimore.org!


We’re delighted that you’re taking a closer look at GraceCity. We know that there are a variety of life circumstances which may provoke someone to look for a church. Maybe you are new to the area. Maybe you are just sensing that there is more to life. Maybe you are looking to make a difference in the world. Maybe life is coming apart at the seams and you are looking for a community of friends where you can find hope and support.

Whatever it is that finds you considering our church, we want you to know that at GraceCity you are warmly welcomed and fully accepted. You are invited to fully engage in our community, and there’s space to engage on your own terms.

If you’re looking for a perfect church, we’re not it. But if you are looking for a group of imperfect people who want to encourage one another to live our lives as Jesus lived his, who want to build meaningful friendships across any boundaries, and who want to make a real difference in this world, then we just might be your church.

Come check us out. We would be honored for you to visit and would love for you to join us in the greatest adventure life has to offer–following Jesus Christ together.

With enthusiasm and respect,

Bob & Corey
