AGTS honored David and Beth Grant, of the class of 1979, as the 2014 Alumni of the Year at its 41st commencement on May 3.
David and Beth Grant, founders of Project Rescue, have served with Assemblies of God World Missions for 37 years. While their ministry has been primarily focused on India, their hearts to share their faith and see victims of sexual slavery rescued and restored has carried them to over 30 countries around the world.

For 40 years, India has been the heart and focus of David’s ministry. His visionary approach to world missions has inspired this generation to intercession, investment and involvement. Thousands of churches have been planted and scores of colleges established as a result of his passion and boundless energy. While continuing his commitment to the needs of India, David is increasingly engaged in the development of new Project Rescue ministries across Eurasia and Europe.
Beth’s personal calling and passion is that of teacher. She is associate professor of intercultural studies at the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary. She also serves as faculty and guest lecturer in cross-cultural education and women’s issues in colleges in India, Europe and the United States. In 2009, Beth became the first woman elected to the Executive Presbytery of the General Council of the Assemblies of God. Beth and David have two daughters, Rebecca and Jennifer, and two grandchildren.
