Jane has been a pastor’s wife in several churches in the states; she was a music professor at the Baptist Seminary in the Philippines; and they were itinerant teachers in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Myanmar to pastors and church leaders who could not go to Bible School, so they took the training to them.
Bob pastored at Southview Baptist Church in Lincoln, Nebraska from 1988 to 1993, when they returned to the mission field as Southern Baptist missionaries. She took a hiatus in 1998 to earn a Master of Music Degree at the age of 53 at Southwestern Seminary in 1998.
In 2003, Jane was able to visit Yangon and meet with a graduate of Philippines Baptist Seminary, David Suum, and see first hand the first Christian Music School in Myanmar. Five years later she would be a part of the faculty.
In 2005, Jane required open heart surgery but by the end of that year, she and Bob were able to move to Thailand and serve with LEAD — an a itinerant Bible school for pastors. In 2007, as a part of the LEAD team, they went to Yangon to teach several LEAD seminars. Unexpectedly, God laid a burden on their hearts to serve in Yangon and then He accomplished that desire. He worked out all the plans: an invitation from Myanmar Institute of Theology to join their faculty; permission from their mission board to move; a business visa, a place to stay, etc. All the necessaries fell into place!
A few days after the Graysons arrived in Yangon, a catastrophic hurricane hit Myanmar, killing over 130,000 people. Yet they were able to begin teaching in June at several Bible schools, including Grace Music Institute.
In December, 2009 they retired from IMB to live in Texas near their daughter and her family. Since 2012, Bob has been serving as pastor in FBC Splendora, TX, a suburb of Houston, where Jane is worship coordinator.
