My name’s Grant and I’m a 1st year Christ in the City missionary from Monument, CO.

What brought you to Christ in the City?

I came to Christ in the City because I have had a heart for the homeless since I was little. Whenever I would go into the city, and encounter the homeless, I wanted to offer what I could to help them. Oftentimes it was food, but as I grew up, I began to spend more time speaking to them and hearing their stories. It was difficult leaving them because it was rare that I would see them again. I wanted to continue to develop the friendships. Christ in the City is a unique mission that allows me to develop friendships with the men and women on the streets and see them whenever I can.

What are you looking forward to?

I am looking forward to the communal living based upon prayer and charity. I had something
like it during my time in seminary. I grew to be a better man and closer to Jesus and His mother, Mary, while I was at the Mount. I would not trade my years in seminary for anything for these reasons. I look forward to continually growing in charity with my brother and sister missionaries at CIC.

A bit about me

I was born and raised in Colorado Springs, and apparently, that is an obvious fact. From the
stickers on my water bottle to the Chaco’s, I am told that I am thoroughly granola. Beyond that, I am a convert to the Catholic faith, having not been raised in a church by my parents. God reeled me in by philosophy, reading the Gospels, and the love of my Christian friends. I also enjoy playing all sports, especially basketball, and I love to hike, read, and watch movies.


everyone deserves

We are so grateful for our monthly supporters and their consistent generosity which makes it possible for us missionaries to be formed and reach out the homeless all year-long.
