Introducing Grant: SEND Outreach Coordinator

By Lydia Gingerich

Over the next few weeks we will be introducing our 2018 SEND Interns. This group of seven REACH graduates will spend the year deepening their relationship to God and his Kingdom through serving at the RIC and being discipled by the SEND Department. RMM is grateful for their hard work and is excited to see them grow this year.


Grant from Hartville, Ohio, serves as this year’s outreach coordinator. In this role, Grant contacts numerous outreach locations within Columbus, organizing service groups for both City Challenge and REACH.

Growing up with seven brothers, Grant has learned to enjoy most sports and outdoor activities. He recently signed up to run the Columbus Half Marathon in October and says he has lots of training to do before then. “Sometimes it didn’t really feel like we were doing a lot, but I just had to remind myself to press into God during those tough times.”In the future Grant hopes to work in a field that combines his love of sports and physiology – such as personal training or physical therapy.

In 2017 Grant traveled to North Africa with the REACH program. His team spent most of their time in a small village where they farmed and hoped to be a reflection of God’s light. “Sometimes it didn’t really feel like we were doing a lot, but I just had to remind myself to press into God during those tough times.” Grant looks forward to facilitating that kind of reliance on God in other young people who come to the RIC this year.

Please pray for Brenda and all of the 2018 interns as they love and serve this year.
