Scott and Liane Grant graduated from Apostolic Missionary Institute in 1988. After assisting in two churches in Ontario, Canada, they pioneered a church in Welland, a city near Niagara Falls with a significant French population. Throughout their ministry, the Grants have been actively involved in worship, home missions, youth and children's ministries, as well as starting a ministerial training campus.
Their burden for French ministry culminated in their appointment in 2009 as Metro Missionaries to Montreal, Quebec - the most under-evangelized area in North America. The Metro Missions program is administered by the North American Missions department of the United Pentecostal Church International.
North America has approximately one UPC church for every 75,000 people. However, the metro areas of North America have only one UPC church for every 240,000 people. The province of Quebec has only one church for every million people! Montreal is 2/3 French, but is a multicultural city with a growing immigrant population, and has the most university students per capita of any city in North America.
Scott and Liane came to Montreal with a missionary heart and plunged into the French language. During their first term as Metro Missionaries, they planted the International Church in Montreal’s South Shore; took oversight of the church in Trois-Rivières and saw it triple in attendance; started English and French campuses of Purpose Institute, now training over 50 workers for active ministry. Liane received her BA in Translation and is now working on her Master’s in Translation Studies. In 2011 she launched The King’s Translators, a group of volunteers devoted to making apostolic resources available in French.
In 2013, the Grants were appointed as Career Church Planters with a mandate to start churches in the corridor between Montreal and Quebec City. Your prayers and financial support will help to make this vision a reality. Thank you and God bless you!
