Welcome to Junior High Ministries!
Meet our New JHM Pastor, Grant Herbold!
My name is Grant Herbold. I was born and lived in Orange, CA for the majority of my life. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Kristin, since December and we reside in Brea. I graduated from Biola University in 2018 with a B.A. in Rhetorical/Interpersonal Communication and a Minor in Biblical/Theological Studies. One of the many scriptures that transforms my life daily is Mark 13:37 “And what I say to you I say to all: Stay awake.” The Holy Spirit has interwoven a deep desire to love and reach junior highers for the Kingdom.
I have been working as a Junior High Resident at Friends Church Yorba Linda for almost a year and was a junior high volunteer during college at my home church of Calvary Church of Santa Ana. I love sports of ALL kinds, and have played basketball my whole life! If you were to observe my wife and me for a weekend, you would find us playing basketball, hanging out with our friends or family, enjoying a well-written TV show, or having a dance party to our favorite tunes. I am thrilled and grateful that God has brought my wife and me to Rose Drive to serve you amazing people and this wonderful community; I look forward to meeting you! -Grant
