Rev. Dr. Gershwin Grant has a passion for the Conservative Baptist movement and a strong desire to help our churches fulfill their mission.
After earning an architecture degree from the New York Institute of Technology and working in the field for several years, Gershwin accepted the Lord’s call to ministry. He studied at the New York School of the Bible, the Seminary of the East, and Alliance Theological Seminary, finally earning his Masters’ Degree and Doctorate of Ministry from ATS.
During his years in New York City, Gershwin served as the Assistant Director of New York Gospel Outreach and as the Associate Director of the New York Christian Higher Education Consortium. He planted a CB church in the Bronx, the His Glory Bible Fellowship, through Missions Door (formerly Mission to the Americas).
He has served as the Senior Pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in Ossining, New York, since 2002. He is currently serving in this multi-cultural, multi-generational church with Cynthia, his wife of 22 years.
Gershwin has a strong CB pedigree, having planted and served CB churches. He is currently the moderator of the CB Hudson Valley Pastors’ Cluster and has served on the board of directors of WorldVenture and on the executive board of CB Mission Northeast. Gershwin has also been the Christian Chaplain in the Baptist Division of the Hebrew Home for the Aged for nearly twenty years.
These experiences have uniquely prepared Gershwin to effectively represent Mission Northeast as an Area Director. Additionally, Gershwin is assisting with connections to the New York City and Long Island churches until an Area Director is appointed for that area. He will seek to assist CB pastors and churches by providing resources and encouragement. He will help these churches in the areas of church health, leadership development, and church planting.
