Life Bridge University

Heartbroken for the crowds Jesus was filled with compassion and said to his disciples.

 The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.  Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:37-38

Jesus knew the need. There was a vast harvest of people ready to hear and receive the message of eternal life. Jesus knew the problem. There were not enough people willing to give there life to harvesting. Jesus knew the solution. Men and women to respond to the call.

If you are here that might mean you are an answer to prayer. We have been praying that God would raise up workers to go into the harvest field. Our audacious goal is to equip and train pastors to plant churches. We are currently selecting applicants to be the first class of Life Bridge University. We will train you in theology, preaching and leadership.

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.
