Damascus Highway!
Biography!


Damascus Highway represents fast conversions as time is very short. The name comes from the conversion of Paul in Acts Chapter 9. But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake. Acts 9:15,16 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God. (verse 20)

Then there is Dad:
Last but certainly not least, the Hub of the family. Our dad, John.  Although our dad sits quietly in the background, he has been more than supportive. A very inspirational tool in our lives. He doesn’t know what the words “Give Up” mean. Although he can’t play the radio, he supports his family, and is very proud.

We are the Griffis family.


"When I was going through the hardest times in my life, the Lord gave me a new song in my heart. It seems the words just flow when I write. I take no credit for anything I do. It is the Holy Spirit working through me. I stopped running down that lonely road, and it is my hope, that through our music, others will hear the voice of our God and Savior, and too, stop running down their lonely roads".
Rod Griffis

Today is the day before eternity.
