WHEN THERE’S NO WAY OUT
THERE IS A WAY THROUGH
Rev. Jeff Grant, J.D., M.Div.
Jeff is an ordained minister with over three decades of experience in crisis management, business, law, reentry, recovery (clean & sober 16+ years), and executive & religious leadership. He provides confidential pastoral and spiritual care and support to individuals, families and organizations in the areas of personal crisis management, criminal justice/prisoner reentry, opioid and substance abuse, bipolar disorder/mental illness, and interfaith religion. He regularly uses his experience and background to guide people faithfully forward in their lives, relationships, careers and business opportunities, and to help them from making the kinds of decisions that previously resulted in loss, suffering and shame.
As an ordained minister, conversations and communications between Jeff and those he serves fall under clergy privilege laws. This is one reason that attorneys often allow and encourage their clients to maintain relationships with Jeff while in active prosecution or litigation situations.
Lynn is a certified yoga instructor who is called to this ministry with a heart of compassion and understanding. She has assisted many women and families in finding ethical ways through faith and practical solutions to a new sturdy, healthy, spiritual way of life.
