Rev. Marty Granger

Founder & President


After a short career as a public school teacher and 20 years as a director with Youth for Christ/USA, Marty has invested the last 2+ decades as a ministry entrepreneur - assisting men and women to carry out their God-given mission through his organizational and mentoring activities. In 1996 he began the current ministry sponsorship program of adopting ministries under the legal, administrative and human resource umbrella of Ministry Alliance (formerly Faith in the Family International).

In 1999 Marty co-founded the Washington (DC) Area Coalition of Men's Ministries in order to help men's ministry leaders in churches and organizations to "do together what they cannot do alone" through gathering men for events, training leaders, and equipping local churches throughout the National Capital Region and around the nation. Since relocating to Charlotte, NC in 2011, Marty has launched a men's ministry network under the name Carolina Men.

Marty and his wife Jerrye were married in 1967. They have two adult children, three granddaughters and three grandsons.
