Grant Connor was born into a godly family. At age 20 he came under conviction of sin, submitted to water baptism, and received the Holy Spirit. He joined a local Baptist church and came to appreciate the sovereignty of God and the doctrines of grace. Grant is a Gideon speaker, a state prison volunteer, and until recently a monthly guest speaker for worship services at an area nursing home. He and his wife have five grown children and four grandchildren. He is retired from working as an engineering technician. He shared his holy ambition to share encouragement through Bible teaching and intercessory prayer.
