Perry and his beautiful bride, Janet, have been married since 1975 and live in Columbia, SC. They have two married daughters both married to awesome son-in-laws, and 6 beautiful grandchildren. He received his undergraduate degree from University of Maryland ('go Terps!), his Masters from Western Baptist Seminary, a Doctorate of ministry from Columbia International University, and is an ordained PCA (Presbyterian Church of America) pastor. He is addicted to mountain biking, an aging animal in his kayak, loves reading, and on occasion you will find him trying to shoot his IQ on the front nine. He is a hopeless romantic, hand holding hugging husband, and a certifiably warped 'Far Side' freak.
Perry: That each of our grandkids would come to and continue to grow in Christ. Lulu, Ezra, Zeq, Eleanor, Hannah, and Logan. Pray for the Grip men that I have the honor of discipling. All of them are young fathers with small children. As for me, please pray for endurance that I may finish well in life before the Lord to honor him
Janet: to DAILY present my heart and mind to Jesus, to take courage and be realigned with His way and His word.
Megan and Marc: Guard their health as Hannah & Logan, dad & mom are in school environment. Parental wisdom to parent well building confidence & compassion. Authenticity in relationship with Christ as Meg & Marc function in their jobs.
Joy and Eddie: guard the health of Lulu, Ezra, Zeq & Elenor amidst Covid as they attend school. Protection from lies of the culture and for their hearts to embrace the love of Christ and truth of scripture. Wisdom & stamina for Eddie & Joy as they personally follow Christ, parent the kids (ages 9-15), and maintain their jobs.
