Meet Our Chapel Staff
Grant comes to Covenant from Pasadena, California, where he most recently served as the coordinator of campus ministries at Providence Christian College. His call to campus ministry follows thirteen years of pastoral ministry—ten of those serving as senior pastor of Second Congregational Church in Peabody, Massachusetts, and three as a pastor of Grace Pasadena, a PCA church plant in Pasadena, California.
Since coming to faith through reading the gospels in college, Grant has remained passionate about God’s word and its ability to transform hearts and minds. He is devoted to faithful, expository preaching and has a deep appreciation and love for the Lord’s church. Ordained as a teaching elder in the PCA, Grant most recently served on the credentials committee in the Pacific Presbytery.
Grant graduated from the University of Kansas with a B.A. in English literature and received his M.Div. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Sandi, who is also a University of Kansas graduate and holds an M.A. in church history from Gordon-Conwell, have been married twenty years and have two daughters, Henri and Flannery. Having lived all over the country, this is the Lowes’ first time to dwell in the land of sweet tea and banana pudding.
