"We are not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation to whoever believes." We walk in Holy Spirit power. We are sold out for the goal of serving our King. He lives inside of us, therefore we are supernatural. We have His heart and mind and are goals are to love like He loves, heal like He heals and bring people to freedom, because that's what He purchased. We know the will of the Father, so we do it. We hear what He is saying, so we say it. We walk in victory, because we are more than conquerors in Jesus. Our greatest goal is to know our Father in Heaven and for you to know and encounter Him as well. We are a family and we'd love you to be part of it.
Derek & Sarah Grant have been called by the Lord to Pastor His people at Crossroads Victory Church in Owen Sound . They have four wonderful children:
Derek grew up loving the outdoors, loving people and loving Jesus. At 17 he joined the Canadian Armed Forces. A couple years later he was challenged into Overseas Mission work which led into four years of training with Ethnos Canada, before serving the Lord as a Church Planter in Papua , Indonesia. While on furlough, the Lord brought Sarah into Derek’s life in a remarkable way & they were married shortly after.
Sarah spent her early years as an MK (Missionary Kid) in Senegal, West Africa & her growing up years in Durham, Ontario where her parents served on staff at New Tribes Mission. She too felt the Lord calling her to serve Him & took four years of training at Ethnos Bible School and Missionary training program.
They returned to Indonesia together, built a little home & served among a semi-nomadic people group named "Dao" in the mountains of Papua. They helped plant an indigenous Church there.
Their passion is to see people encounter God, come to a place of wholeness in their Spirit, Soul and Bodies & equip & position people into effective service of the Lord.

Their mission is to encourage others in the love & almighty power of Christ & to live lives worthy of His name!
