Grant is a uniquely equipped, charismatic and thought provoking speaker. Book him for your event, your school, church or festival. Read about some of his most popular topics below.
Worship: What is it?
Within contemporary Christian culture, we can so easily speak and think of “worship” – whether consciously or subconsciously – as merely musical expressions to God. Yet we know that worship is much more. Even for those who might freely state that “worship is a lifestyle”, Grant’s potent presentation on the true meaning of worship is sure to challenge.
The Greatest Paradox: Die to Live
Is God a God of judgment or a God of love? Am I of infinite or insignificant value to God? Is Jesus the Christ a servant or a king? Lion or lamb? Is my salvation free, or does it cost me everything? How can I make sense of God’s glaring and overwhelming paradoxes?
Breaking the Unbearable Cycle of Sin
Counterfeit fulfillment; shame, guilt and condemnation; striving, resolution, pride and self-satisfaction; disillusionment, despair and anger; back to the lie of sin. Is there no way out? Yes! There’s an unconventional and nontraditional solution: A much-needed message in a time when hidden sin runs rampant and largely unchecked within the Christian community.
“Every poet and musician, but for grace, …” C.S.Lewis
Grant shares his least favorite quote from favorite author C.S.Lewis. Timely words drawn from Lewis’s “The Great Divorce” are updated for today and brought into focus as a stark warning to those in the Christian ‘limelight’ that perhaps the most dangerous distraction from completely surrendering my life to God is doing work for God.
Adoption and The Heart Of God
Grant sensitively and humorously relates his family’s joyful struggle through infertility to adoption and shows what the journey taught him – and can teach us all – about our own adoption to be children of God.
Adapting scientific and survey data first developed by Compassion International’s former Senior Vice President of Global Advocacy, Scott Todd, Grant presents a compelling picture of great hope for the futures of people who today are living in conditions of extreme poverty. Hope for the poor is created by hope for them in us.
Christianity in a Post-Christian Era
As an Australian who lived in the USA from 2002 to 2018, Grant offers a fresh perspective on faith, life and the dangers of a cultural form of “Christianity”. Respectfully, Grant calls into questions some of the accepted norms of Christian culture and points us all to a deeper, more honest acceptance of Jesus the Christ as Lord.
Insecurity and Authenticity
“Fair dinkum!” It’s a much-loved, well-used and highly useful term from the Australian dialect of the English language. It means true, honest, valuable, of quality, authentic, the real deal. It’s time to be more fair dinkum. It’s time to recognize our own insecurities and lack of authenticity as a prerequisite step towards finding security in the authenticity of Christ. After all – the easiest person for me to fool … is me.
