Grace to You began in 1969 which was the same year as the Apollo mission took us to the moon and back. John MacArthur became the Senior Pastor at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, and recordings of his preaching were made to share with members who were unable to attend. A radio station began to play the tapes over the air, and the ministry of Grace to You was like that of an Apollo rocket ship, sitting on the launch pad, ready to blast off. When my own father was first saved back in the '70s, he would purchase their cassette tapes and hand out duplicates to as many people as he could.
If you would like to be edified and encouraged, you should connect with Grace to You. Start by downloading the John MacArthur Study Bible on your phone. Check out the website, the YouTube Channel, and their many Podcasts. There are also many incredible Associate Pastors, such as Phil Johnson, who is another favorite of mine. So much that they offer to assist the Gospel going forth.
Phil is the executive director of Grace to You. He has been closely associated with John MacArthur since 1981 and edits most of Pastor MacArthur’s major books. Phil also founded several popular websites, including The Spurgeon Archive, The Hall of Church History, and the Pyromaniacs blog. He is an ordained elder and pastor at Grace Community Church. Phil and his wife, Darlene, have three adult children and seven grandchildren.
