Meet The TeamGrace Walk is an international teaching and training ministry.
Hi, I’m Steve McVey, president of Grace Walk Ministries. I hope you find our web site to be a real encouragement to you in your own grace walk. Our ministry is a teaching and training ministry which exists for the purpose of sharing the life of Jesus Christ with others and to help Christians discover the freedom of their new life in Christ. We are honored that you want to visit us here. It is not easy to develop relationships over the Web, therefore we’d like to introduce ourselves to you in hopes we might get to know one another better. Each member of the Grace Walk team has a passion to share the sufficiency of Jesus Christ, not only for salvation, but for daily living. We have each experienced the bondage of legalism but have been transformed by coming to understand our identity in Christ and what it means to walk in grace. Consequently, He has given us a burning desire to see the body of Christ growing in grace as well. If you would like a member of the Grace Walk Team to speak at your church service or special event, please contact us at email@example.com and we will get back in touch with you to discuss the details. It really was for freedom that Christ set us free!! Let us continue to stand firm in that freedom and not impose a yoke of slavery upon ourselves or others!

Ron & Evelyn Swain
Directors, Grace Walk Australia
G’day from the “Land Down Under” allow us to introduce ourselves to you, we are Ron and Evelyn Swain Directors of Grace Walk Australia. We are very honored and privilege to represent Grace Walk in the South Pacific and our prayer is that as the wonderful message of the Gospel of Grace is shared it will impact many lives with the freedom and rest in Christ. Ron and Evelyn were in full time Ministry for many years but in 1996 God changed their circumstances thus beginning their Grace Walk journey. During this time they came to the understanding that their Heavenly Father loves us all unconditionally and wants to have a relationship with His children based on not what we do for Him but what He has already done through the finished work of the Cross. Ron and Evelyn have a passion to see those that are hurt and disillusioned with their Christian experience, come to know Jesus Christ, not only for salvation, but for daily living. Their desire is to see the body of Christ come to an understanding of the Gospel of Grace and His amazing love for all. Ron and Evelyn are parents of one son and one daughter and grandparents of 4 boys.

Director of Training
Join us in welcoming Toshi Miyazaki to the Grace Walk Team. Please feel free to contact him about Grace Walk Groups or training events and materials through his email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Welcome, Toshi Miyazaki! We’ve prayed and waited for you to arrive for a long time!
“I am Toshi Miyazaki. I became a Christian believer through my American family when I was 21 years old. I have been married to my bride Chiho and we have two sons. I have been in Christian ministry for more than 20 years as a pastor, counselor, and a student missionary. During my first 20 years as a Christian, I lived a legalistic life (doing my best with God’s help). It was very tiring and basically burned me out. In 2004, God started to show me my true identity in Christ, which is that I am holy and righteous, not from my efforts, but from what Jesus has already done for me at the cross. It was such a liberating and eye-opening moment to me. In 2012, the Holy Spirit started to show me deeper truths of who God is, who I am, and who other people are. He showed me the authentic and pure Gospel, which is that “. . . God was in Christ reconciling the whole world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, . . . be reconciled to God.” (2 Corinthians 5:19-20 NASB). I am learning to live from my heart and enjoying ever increasing intimacy with Our Father in Christ through the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. I am inviting you to join me in this awesome adventure with God!”
