Grant Myers
Executive Director
 
At the age of nine years old I had a call to go into the ministry.   Over the last eighteen years I have been a pastor in churches in Colorado, Tennessee, and Texas where I have been on a mission to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.  I have been given a window of opportunity to help establish God’s reputation here in our World.  Sensing God’s leading I stepped out courageously to plant a church in Dallas, Texas over the last three years.  
 
Since planting a church I now desire to expand my calling more into the entire world.  With the goal of reaching people that have never been reached before.  I could not have found a better ministry to live this dream than Rio Ministries.
