Evangelists Doug and Janet Rowland
Grace and Glory Ministries was seeded deep within the hearts of Doug and Janet Rowland as their lives were completely changed by the fires of revival. Prior to their personal great awakening, Doug was a regular church attendee as well as a business man, living the "American Dream". Although the Lord was blessing his family and his business, Doug knew that there was something more for his life. In 1993, that cry in his heart was stirred when revival broke out in their local church. With a great hunger and thirst for the move of God, Doug pressed into many of the thirty days of revival meetings which were conducted by South African Evangelist, Dr. Rodney Howard-Browne. As the anointing of the Holy Spirit began to work strongly in their lives, Doug and Janet's hearts were transformed and broken for people. The Lord began to impress upon them the calling into the full-time ministry. Therefore, in September of 1998, after a series of leaps of faith, the Rowland family launched into their God-given destiny.
Since the birth of Grace and Glory, this global revival ministry has developed in an ever-increasing hunger to see the Word of God supernaturally demonstrated by the power of the Holy Spirit. Literally tens of thousands of lives have been impacted through the ministry's three-prong focus: Primarily, their passion is to seek and to save those who are lost (Luke 19:10) through mass crusade evangelism, church altar calls, and one-on-one witnessing. Second, they endeavor to bring revival to the churches with signs and wonders of the Holy Spirit confirming His message. Third, it is their burning desire to reach out to the poor and needy by distributing humanitarian aid such as food, clothing, medicine, and toys. With the love of Christ, they are pursuing the very heartbeat of God, which is SOULS. Their mission statement is this: "To impact heaven, this side of eternity!" The title "Grace and Glory" acknowledges that this mission statement is fulfilled completely by His grace and for His glory!
