Top 10 Things You Never Knew About Ephraim

Many of you know this man. He’s been around Grace in multiple capacities for the past few years. He leads our weekend worship teams for all campuses (in the past with Fishers and 146th Street, and currently at North Indy). He is one of our ministry interns for 2016-2017. He also played the lead as Gaston in Grace’s production of Beauty & the Beast. To say that he is a jack-of-all-trades is the understatement of the year. He has the widest variety of hobbies of anyone we’ve ever know. He’s so unique and leads such an interesting life, that we wanted each of you to get to know him a little better. So, here are the top 10 things you may not know about Ephraim Owens:

  1. He’s a MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) Fighter (if you go backstage before worship, you can usually find him doing pushups).

  2. He’s the middle of 7 kids.

  3. He’s an American Bully Breeder, Trainer & Handler.

  4. He likes to work with his hands.

  5. He “saw” Bigfoot at a summer camp when he was a kid.

  6. He’s extremely competitive, yet also very loyal.

  7. He loves to dance (salsa, hip hop and his favorite, bachata).

  8. His favorite types of movies are ROM COM’s (romantic comedies) and his top two include August Rush and We Bought a Zoo.

  9. He buys new socks and undergarments before every trip (random, but true).

  10. He was born on the day of his baby shower, November 2 (apparently, he didn’t want to miss out on the party).

Bonus:

  1. Each of his tattoos have deep meaning. He draws them himself and prays about them for a year before getting it done. 

Needless to say, we are thankful for Ephraim, his servant heart, his drive, his skills, and everything else he brings to the table. Share the ways you are grateful for this great man of God in the comments below! Oh, and if you've never had the chance to meet him, be sure to say "hi" next time you see him...he has plenty of more unique stories and facts he can share with you!

Ephraim's name means DOUBLY FRUITFUL, CAUSING ONES TO FORGET THEIR SORROW IN THE LAND OF THEIR SUFFERING. And his father pronounced that blessing on him daily. He's all that and more. Welcome brother!
