DJ is a husband, father 4, and Founding Pastor of CityWell Church. As a teenager DJ always wanted to be a computer programmer but at 16 years old had a radical call to ministry he begrudgingly followed. In 2008 he started working for Morgantown Community Church as their youth pastor. His love for media and technology caused his position to evolve over time to include all IT, production and operations. In 2014 DJ help this growing church move onto RockRMS being the first church to go live. In April 2020 (as a world pandemic was heating up) the Gricks announced they would be planting MCC's first daughter church in Coatesville PA. Today that church operates as a handful of micro-churches as they continue to search for a location for larger gatherings. In 2022 DJ began working with Good Samaritan Services to help them us RockRMS to manager their housing programs serving Chester and Lancaster County PA.
