EMPOWERING PEOPLE TO MOVE FORWARD STRONGER
I'm John Grandy - Life Coach, Pastor, Husband, Father, & Friend. I live in Smithville, Ohio and I’m incredibly blessed to be married to my best friend, Elizabeth, and dad to my three beautiful and ornery kids: Noah, Lila, and Baby #3 on the way.
I have been serving God with everything I have since I was 12 years old. I believe everyone has the God-given potential to do something great and I am passionate about finding that potential and calling it out. I've always had a passion for helping people. Whenever I hear about the hurts, habits, and hangups of others, I want to help.
As I've discovered my spiritual gifts, got some experience under my belt, and become confident in the unique identity God has given me, I've realized I don't just enjoy helping people, I'm gifted at it. I discovered this thing called Life Coaching that would allow me to put my gifts and experience into motion helping people move forward stronger.
In July 2017, I met with my first client to see how coaching would go. Well, things took off and I turned my coaching business into an LLC and started meeting with clients regularly. Over 30 clients later, the stories of transformation I hear from my clients are powerful and inspiring!
In addition to coaching, I am a Discipleship Pastor at Living Water Church, a thriving multi site church in eastern Ohio. We are real people, living relevant lives, relentlessly pursuing new life in Christ.
I love to enjoy life with my family, develop leaders, eat ice cream, laugh with friends, be outdoors, speak, and write. In all of this, I love life and catch time with people I love while moving God’s Kingdom forward.
