Owen and Emily Grey


We are Owen and Emily Grey and have been serving with Athletes in Action, a Cru ministry, since 2011. We live in Xenia, Ohio, working at AIA's world headquarters with our 3 children, Maisie (7), Conrad (5), Eva (3).   

Owen found himself discipling 2 brand new believers on his swim team during his senior year at Eastern Michigan University and began to wonder how many more athletes on other teams wanted to know Jesus. Emily worked as an athletic trainer realizing that the injured athletes she was treating were more in need of spiritual healing than physical. 

Over the last 13 years we have been called to serve across 8 university athletic departments and 7 countries using sports as a platform to share the gospel and train athletes to use that platform to do the same. Emily serves as the Operations Director for AIA staff conferences managing the logistics, ensuring we keep our mission of "Building spiritual movements through the platform of sports until every athlete knows someone who follows Jesus", front and center.  Owen serves as a part of AIA's Executive Leadership Council, giving direction to the strategy and resources of the organization. His primary role facilitates AIA's data and information systems allowing AIA to better coach it's missionaries in the field and identifying where God's hand is at work so that we can more closely follow his lead.

We are thankful for the ways God has provided for us and appreciate your support as we work to fulfill the great commission. We would love to have you follow more of our journey with AIA through our Facebook page linked below.
