|Longer Bio:||Been following Jesus for so many years I’ve lost count.
Married to college sweetheart (Jo) since June 16, 1973.
Father of two adult daughters (Tami & Janna). Grandfather to Braden (Janna & Jason).
Pastor of Owen Valley Christian Fellowship in Spencer, IN since 11/2005. It is the best place I have ever been and am excited to see what God is going to do.
Road cyclist (Trek). I rode so many years without recording miles I can’t tell you how many I have ridden. I aim for at least 2000 a season. I find myself working 1000 piece jigsaw puzzles when it’s too cold to get outside. I grew up in Pittsburgh and still follow the Pirates. I almost always have music on (except when I study) and prefer classic rock, arena rock and prog rock.(Anything but rap, R & B, country and opera) I’m also a child of ‘60s music so I listen to Tommy James & the Shondells and Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons. I do listen to some worship music when I feel contemplative.
Life changed drastically when a hit-n-run driver hit me while on my bicycle in November 2016. In February of 2017 I had violent bike wreck which broke my collarbone, 3 ribs, split my helmet in 3 places, left lots of facial skin on the pavement and woke me up spiritually.
I love watching movies. Back to the Future is my favorite movie of all time. In my spare time I also lift weights.
I’m a Titanic buff. I also like to read on a variety of subjects, but usually stick to what is beneficial to my ministry.
I have been blogging at billgrandi.com since February of 2008. I added Be Transformed in January of 2018 to blog about my daily walk through New Morning Mercies.
