Our Story

My name is Greg Molchan and this is my wife, Leah.  Together we represent the Grand Rapids Dream Center. Having been friends since middle school, it was over 18 years ago when we knew it was God’s plan for us to be married.  Today we have been blessed with a wonderful marriage and friendship, and blessed with three amazing children, Emmy, Noah and Judah.  It has been our heart, desire and intention to raise our family with a strong foundation built on the love of God in Jesus Christ.
With two different backgrounds, I grew up in northern Indiana outside of Chicago and moved to Michigan when I was 11.  I had no church background and experienced some family separation;
seeing addictions, poverty and brokenness, however my whole life changed when I gave my life to Christ when I was 19 years old.  From West Michigan, Leah experienced family hardship at times seeing the devastation of drug and alcohol addiction resulting in family separation. It was after God radically intervened in her family where she began to grow up in a stable family giving her heart to Christ as early as seven years old and experiencing a great church community most of her life going
forward.  Together our heart passionately sees the desperation of many of our city disconnected from God, disconnected from His love and a true sense of vision and purpose for their lives.  While we see and feel that, we also see there are many people today that don’t just want to hear about God’s love only, but people are desiring to feel it, see it, and experience it in an authentic way.  We are united and passionate to see people experience God’s love and the power of a changed life and destiny in Him.
Our heart for the Grand Rapids Dream Center is birthed from 15 years of full-time ministry experience doing missions, evangelism and motivational events for communities and schools worldwide.
We have previously worked and served with The Conquerors International Strength Team, Rockford Resurrection Life Church, Prison Fellowship and One Hope. We envision God’s plan for the Dream Center being accomplished through sharing His message of love through traditional and non-traditional methods of outreach, serving, equipping and building people up.
