FENTON, MI – Dan Ghramm has been serving as a Church Planting Catalyst with BSCM/NAMB in Southwest Michigan. His wife Amanda, a sign language interpreter, and their five children live in Hudsonville, Michigan. They have found great joy worshipping and serving at Redemption Church, a three-year-old church plant in Grandville, a suburb of Grand Rapids.
We regret to let you know that Dan has offered his official resignation as a full time Church Planting Catalyst with the Baptist State Convention of Michigan and the North American Mission Board effective July 31, 2018. His hard work in the southwest corner of Michigan will continue to see fruits from his labor of coordinating church planters, sending churches, training facilities, and so much more.
On August 1, 2018, Dan will begin his duties as the lead pastor of Gateway Church in North Ridgeville, Ohio.
Not only will Dan be lead Pastor, but he and Gateway Church are pursuing a partnership between Cleveland Hope, the State Convention of Baptists in Ohio, and the North American Mission Board where he will become a church-based Church Planting Catalyst for SEND City Cleveland. Church planting and reaching people with the Good News is in his blood, no matter where he is.
Dan writes, “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time serving in Michigan and have appreciated Dr. Tony Lynn’s leadership. I’m grateful for what we have accomplished together. We are excited about these changes and look forward to what God is going to do. I’m confident that our partnership in ministry will continue.”
Dan’s enthusiasm for the things of God will be missed. We pray for his wife and family to have a good transition to a new area of service. May the Kingdom of God increase because of his ministry.
