Only transformed individuals can create a transformed world; only better men and women can fashion a better society; only spiritually advanced citizens can architect a spiritually advanced civilization. ~ Vern B. Grimsley

Vern Grimsley was born in Garden City, Kansas. An alumnus of Culver Academy in Indiana, Vern later returned to Kansas to become one of the youngest radio newscasters and DJs in the nation while still finishing high school. His station - KNCO - reached Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado and Oklahoma. Vern won the Kansas State Chamber of Commerce speaking and essay contest, meriting a trip to Washington, D.C. where fellow Kansan Dwight D Eisenhower personally congratulated Vern in the Oval Office.

Vern graduated from the University of Kansas in 1963, and in 1964, began the Spiritual Renaissance Broadcast over KFAX in San Francisco. By the late 1970s, his Worldwide Broadcasting Network was reaching all 50 states, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, the Caribbean, the Middle East and China.

In 1981 Vern received the Prince of Peace Award "For extraordinary and continuous contribution in bringing hope, peace and the gospel of Christ to Jerusalem and all the peoples of the Middle East" from the Otis Star of Hope Foundation.

Vern spoke to civic audiences from coast to coast, and lectured for the American Management Association. His On Campus broadcasts were aired on American Forces Radio Network, and Radio Free Europe ran his special on Youth and Religion behind the Iron Curtain in several languages. Vern was interviewed three times by George McManus for his Peabody Award winning series on the CBS Network titled Man and his Religion.

At the height of his broadcast career, annual worldwide listenership to Vern's Spiritual Renaissance and On Campus programs was estimated at over 284 million per year.

Vern retired in 2004 following an illness, and he and his beloved wife, Nancy, live in the California mountains. Vern continues to write and broadcast, and his book, Fragments of Philosophy is nearing completion.
