The ministry of Valiant is made up of vocalists Matthew Grieve, Rodney Hamilton and Jeff Harden, along with Nathan Grieve who is the group’s booking manager and sound technician. Together with their tight harmonies and moving testimonies, this young Canadian group brings inspired music that reaches all ages. They have a heart for leading the Church in worship and sharing the true message of hope through song.

Valiant is based out of Guelph, Ontario and is one of the newer groups to hit the Canadian gospel scene in the last few years. They completed their debut album, entitled “Valiant”  in January 2011.
