Welcome to Preach Between The Lines Blog!

Thank you for visiting this homepage.

What started out as an attempt to connect the scriptures with my church, I developed a one year reading through the New Testament, which grew into a five year blogging project. Through the years the blog became known through the international realm with 70 countries accessing the blog. So I decided to try and leave a legacy of sorts for my family and the future generations. Below are links to the books I have written, the first book is The Pilgrimage Begins, covering the books of the New Testament. here is the link to purchase it. https://store.bookbaby.com/bookshop/book/index.aspx?bookURL=The-Pilgrimage-Begins. The books can be ordered through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other retailers.


  The Old Testament blogs under the title “The Pilgrimage Continues.” and can be ordered at this link: https://store.bookbaby.com/bookshop/book/index.aspx?bookURL=The-Pilgrimage-Continues

Book Image Not AvailableSome may wonder why the order of the books, and why the Old Testament is The Pilgrimage Continues – well for an christian or for any person really, the journey of life does not end – but is a continuous  journey – My prayer is that you will not journey alone, but with Jesus Christ our Savior!

A little about me:  I am Jim Grant,  I am   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.” I also have a  military background, having spent nearly 25 years in the Air Force; which had a lot to do with my ability 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. I have contributed to two other books: Church Revitalization in Rural America, https://www.amazon.com/Church-Revitalization-Rural-America-Restoring/dp/0998738468/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=church+revitalization+in+rural+america&qid=1630854969&sr=8-1 and  Practical Tools Practical Tools For Reinventing The Dying Church https://www.amazon.com/Practical-Tools-Reinventing-Dying-Church/dp/099873845X/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Practical+Tools+Tom+Cheyney&qid=1630855076&sr=8-1

I hope that you will enjoy the books as much as you have enjoyed the blogs!
