Gregg's Story

I had such a strong desire at a young age to become a United States Marine. It was hard then to express my desires why I felt that way, but many years later, it would be very easy to understand Gods plan for my life. Most of my years on active duty, were spent in many different areas of the world. I have been deployed to the Middle East, Asia, and Europe under the same circumstances and conditions that are very similar to those experienced in Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. It is very clear now that through the years of service to my Country, God was preparing me for an even greater time of service that changed my life forever!

Now I have a new burning desire to serve and be a vessel for the glory and honor of our Lord Jesus Christ. Unlike when I could not find the path of my desire, it is clear and full of purpose now. Christ Jesus has a mission like no other for me. Now my life is for the American Veterans that have been quieted by fear, death, and depression. They have issues ranging from PTSD, Combat Fatigue, Substance, and Domestic Abuse.

That is why we formed Shepherd's Grip. We believe that "God's Gospel revealed is Powerful". This is where I hope that the stories of many fallen men and women would be told; hoping for the "World" to find the "WORD" of Christ Jesus and a new Life forever.

I want to express my gratitude to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for His love and trust in me. It is only through Him that any of this is even possible.
