McGrew's start online ministry after losing custody of children

Posted: Updated:

It only takes a few minutes. You can go online, fill out a form and become a minister. Yes, it's as simple as that, and a man we've seen a lot of in the past two years has gotten his ordination.

"I'm not sure what their goal is on that or what they're actually doing," said Laura McGrew, Quintin McGrew's stepmother.

Some were skeptical when they first learned Quintin McGrew was becoming a minister.

If you remember, this is the Berkeley County couple whose infant was mauled to death by the family dog last year, while now-Reverend McGrew was sleeping in a nearby room.

He is awaiting trial on a charge of illegal conduct toward a child, this while he and Chantel McGrew's two other children were permanently removed.

"They don't get the kids, they have to see the kids in a supervised location," said Laura McGrew.

The couple was living with Laura McGrew when a second child was reportedly bitten in January.

She says they have since moved to North Charleston, but the McGrew's new roommate was not familiar with "Angel Above Ministry's."

"What ministry are you talking about? There is no ministry," he said Wednesday.

But according to the McGrew's new Facebook page, they started the ministry after the passing of their son Aiden.

They offer marriage counseling and wedding ceremonies, and claim to be teaming up with law enforcement in a crackdown on sex offenders.

Meanwhile, there's also a website requesting funding for the ministry.

Chantel McGrew told News 2 they were not interested in doing an interview.
