Office of the President


Sidney Grant | President

Sidney GrantSidney Grant was born in the Bay Islands of Honduras. During his sailing career on a merchant ship, a friend witnessed to him, and he became a Christian. He attended Hobe Sound Bible College and graduated in 1987 from the ministerial department. He began working with FEA in 1987 as a pioneer pastor for Spanish Ministries. After 10 years of pastoring, he became the Director of Spanish Ministries. In 2005 he became the Director of Hope International Missions. Mr. Grant was appointed President of FEA Ministries in 2007. He holds a Master of Arts in Ministry Leadership from Moody Bible Institute and is pursuing a doctorate. Under President Grant’s capable leadership, FEA Ministries has continued to be strengthened and is expanding to impact more of the world for Jesus Christ.

 Presidential Transition

In the fall of 2014, President Grant announced his plans to step down as President of FEA, following the completion of his current term ending in February of 2017. The FEA Board of Directors appointed a Search Committee who recommended names to the Board for consideration. On February 11, 2016 the board unanimously elected Harold Martin as the 6th President of FEA Ministries, effective in February 2017, at the conclusion of President Grant’s term.

There is a time and season for all things. At FEA one season is drawing to a conclusion and another is beginning. Sidney Grant has served God’s Kingdom with distinction through FEA for many years. His time in leadership has been fruitful and productive. But in the summer of 2014, President Grant notified the FEA Board of Directors that his present term would be his final term. So in February of 2017, a time and season will end.

The FEA Board of Directors spent much time seeking God’s will for this transition. The manner in which President Grant notified the board provided a luxury that is not often available in such transitions. He provided the luxury of time—time to be used for the selection and transition of a new president.

A Nominating Committee was appointed and the names of potential candidates were submitted to them for review. A list of highly qualified candidates was narrowed with the intent of finding the appropriate person for FEA’s future. Prayer was an integral part of the process. As board members, collectively and privately, prayer guided the choice. And in the end one name remained. By a unanimous vote, Harold Martin was selected to be the next president of FEA. There is a time and season for all things. It is our common belief that the up and coming season is his time.

As a board we have deeply appreciated your prayerful support. It has been meaningful to us all. We ask that you continue to support the work of God’s ministry through your prayers as we move through this time of change.

Yours in Christ,
Shane Craycraft, Chairman of the FEA Ministries Board of Directors
