The Gregg A Granger

Family Adventure


Who I Am:

I value openness, honesty, and Christ-centeredness in every aspect of my life, and feel less than whole when I fail to live up to those values.

My mission is to use my gifts and experience in the world to promote Genesis 1:26, “And God said, 'let us make man in our image...'”

I treasure above all else the forgiveness of my sins by grace through Christ, the relationships I have with my wife and three children, and the gifts I have been given to carry out this mission.

My vision is to use the gifts God instilled in me to share the message of God's created image in all human life to every person in the United States of America.

How I Came to be Here:

My history of education and employment begins with graduation from Holt High School, '74, construction labor in my father's commercial/industrial/institutional construction company, failed attempt at the University of Wisconsin—Superior, pizza delivery, grunt labor in a plastics factory, then again with my father's company as a carpenter, carpenter foreman, construction superintendent, then into management before graduation from Michigan State University, '89, BS Social Science, and Michigan State University, '91, Masters, Labor and Industrial Relations. I left my father's company after completion of my master's degree to open my own construction company, purchase and then later un-purchase a local hardware store, and generally flounder-around in other odd roles before attacking the adventure of raising my family abroad and aboard a sailing vessel.

Following our return, I spent the first two years holed-up with my computer, writing a book of that journey: Sailing Faith: The Long Way Home, in which I share the highs and lows of that journey.
