Welcome to Preach Between The Lines Blog!
This year’s blog 2021 – I will continue with blogging but since I have completed the journey through the Bible; i will write about the various topics of our day. Some of these will be cultural, others will deal with insights from my devotional time and church revitalization and church health. Midst the pandemic and such things as censorship and cancel culture, I’m sure i will have plenty to write about.
The whole intent of this blog is to freely express thoughts about our world and the life of a believer in Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior. It is my prayer that these blogs will inspire, instruct and illuminate your own journey with Christ, or at least enlighten you on the scriptures.
When I started this blog some five plus years ago, it was meant to be a vehicle for getting the church I pastored reading the scriptures and living out a disciple life style. Since then this blog has reached over 70 countries worldwide. I am in the process of compiling all the New Testament and Old Testament blogs into a two volume set to be available on Amazon.
A little about me: I am Jim Grant, I started a new ministry position December 1st – I am now the Executive Director of the Galveston Baptist Association.
I have pastored 4 churches, all with a different level of church health. God has enabled me to grow in skills and knowledge of “How to revitalize a Church.” My military background, having spent nearly 25 years in the Air Force; has a lot to do with ministering to hurting churches.
I am a graduate from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary with a M Div w/Biblical languages. I have a D Min in Church Revitalization from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. My dissertation was based on Prayer. The title was Identifying and implementing principles of intercessory prayer as a means of revitalizing a Plateaued Church.
I am passionate about Church Health, Revitalization and Revival of the Church.
I am a conference speaker and contributing writer for the National Revitalization organization called Renovate.
