On Wednesday, March 14th our Streams of Hope Spring GR class was blessed to have Brad Spurlin speak to the group. Brad and his wife Rena are the owners of the Chick-Fil-A restaurant on Kalamazoo Avenue in Grand Rapids.

While eating a donated Chick-Fil- A lunch, our 20 class participants were able to listen to Brad speak about his new business. It is always valuable to hear a firsthand account of business ownership, and our Spring GR students were very attentive. Brad spoke of the importance of building positive customer relationships. This will be vital to the students’ new businesses as they grow their customer base.


Brad and Rena are not just involved in our Spring GR program; they continually strive to make a difference in our community in many different ways. Their Chick-Fil-A restaurant has provided lunch/dinner for our volunteers, supported the golf outing, and Brad and Rena have been great prayer partners.


We are very blessed with their partnership. To learn more about Spring GR and how you can get involved, contact Barb.
