Church at the Park: Matthew's Calling

One of the biggest things that gets in the way of us knowing God is that we build these imaginary walls. We believe that we have to walk and talk a certain way before following God. In the story of Matthew, we see that even though he was the scum of the earth, Jesus called Matthew to follow Him just the way he is. This is what God is doing today. He is calling us to follow Him just the way we are no matter how dirty we are.

Grant is our resident farmboy. He grew up in the cornfields of northwest Nebraska. He spent his early days living far from God. As Grant says, "I gave God the middle finger and didn't really care about faith at all." As a young man, he became convinced that God was real. He gave his life to Jesus and experienced God's amazing grace that previously made no sense to him. After experiencing that grace, Grant felt God calling him to teach the message of the gospel. Over the past 20 years, he has been preaching and teaching. Grant, his wife, Bethany, and their four children moved to Michigan in 2011, and he joined the 2|42 team in 2019. Grant is always good for a laugh, but more importantly, he explains biblical concepts in ways anyone can understand.
