Pastor Grant Edwards serves as Senior Pastor of Fellowship Church in Springfield, Ohio. Several years ago, with a desire to impact Fellowship and the community of Springfield for the Kingdom, Grant developed the discipleship process known as First Steps, and his church was transformed. Before long, area churches began asking Grant to help implement First Steps in their churches. From there, and by word of mouth, First Steps has made its way around the globe and into thousands of churches. Grant travels nationally and internationally presenting and implementing First Steps in churches desiring to fulfill both the Great Commission and the Great Commandment. Grant authored Swimming Lessons: How to Keep Christians Afloat in a Sinking World, which draws upon his experience developing a one-on-one culture of discipleship for his church.
