The pro-muso rollercoaster has prepared Grant Norsworthy for a deeper calling.
Grant achieved considerable success as a professional musician in the CCM (Christian Contemporary Music) world – including a Grammy® nomination, a Dove Award, extensive touring, recording and radio hits with bands like PC3 (Paul Colman Trio) and the “forefathers of the modern worship revival” Sonicflood.
But it became apparent that God wanted to communicate more through Grant Norsworthy than could be contained by the notes of the bass guitar alone.
Since late 2007 Grant has ministered in the US, Australia, New Zealand, and several other countries around the world as an independent speaker and musician in service of the Christian Church. With an engaging blend of story-telling, illustrations, solid Bible teaching, and songs, Grant skillfully uses his award-winning musicianship, freewheeling wit and uncommon candor to encourage and challenge any audience to a deeper faith in Christ and good works.
With a message birthed from an intriguing personal journey profoundly impacted by the Word of God, Grant Norsworthy is uniquely qualified as a compelling voice on a number of important topics to all sincere followers of Jesus. But it’s as he provides online and onsite training for the heart and the art of worshipping musicians that Grant’s rare abilities become more obvious. This aspect of Grant’s ministry work is called More Than Music Mentor.
Interwoven with all he does, Grant is a wholehearted advocate for children living in poverty around the world. Maintaining close, strategic partnerships with global missions organizations Grant has seen over 7,000 children find sponsors through his efforts.
Many of Grant’s stories and songs were birthed from experiences “on the field” in so-called “developing” nations like Thailand, Rwanda, The Dominican Republic, and Guatemala. Encounters there – including meeting several of his family’s own sponsor children – have profoundly and irrevocably altered Grant’s faith and perspectives. He lovingly and clearly encourages audiences to connect with “the least of these”, (Matthew 25) and therefore Jesus, by caring for those who are in need.
Referencing one of his former band Sonicflood’s biggest hits “I Could Sing of Your Love Forever”, Grant explains that, “Yes, we can sing of God’s love forever, but we must be God’s love now! Singing and gathering together are important ways we can express worship. But I am convinced that God commands us to worship Him – or ‘show His worth’ – by surrendering completely to Him and by being conduits, here and now, for the compassionate, self-sacrificial love of Jesus – especially towards the poor.”
Grant is married to Kiwi (and US citizen) wife Brooke. They have three rambunctious sons – Max, Marcus, and Casper. When he is not traveling for ministry work, Grant can be found with his family in Nelson, New Zealand – possibly unstacking a dishwasher or building Lego.
