MEET THE TEAM
Todd and Jennifer Grant grew up as pastors’ kids in Ohio, but met at Asbury University in Kentucky. They were married in 1991. Jennifer has an Elementary Education degree and Todd received his M. Div. and D. Min. degrees from Asbury Seminary. Todd pastored and church planted in Ohio and Arizona before coming to California. Jennifer has taught/tutored preschool to college level students, and currently homeschools their youngest four children.
In 2004 they joined the C&MA and moved to LA. Ten years ago they moved into the neighborhood of Watts and led the team that planted Watts Powerhouse Church. They have seven awesome kids, one great dog and a quiet but resilient turtle. They are passionate about sharing the gospel with the lost, discipling believers, raising up leaders, strengthening the local church and nurturing racial reconciliation. They enjoy living in Los Angeles and experiencing its diverse people, culture, food, museums, neighborhoods, parks and beaches.

ABOUT THE SITE
Located in South Los Angeles, Envision LA ministers through the local church to impact the surrounding communities where 35% of the population lives below the poverty line. We build relationships through compassion ministries such as a clothing and food bank, a dental and health clinic, mobile crisis pregnancy center, literacy classes and tutoring. We reach into our community through church planting, VBS, barbecues, festivals, house repair, yard care and special events. We provide life skills through job training, mentoring and driver’s education. We raise up leaders through prayer, discipleship, Bible study, and the Powerhouse Leadership Institute (PHLI.)
We would love for you to come experience what God is doing in Los Angeles. We would be delighted to have you serve with us at Envision LA.
