What is Voices Against the Grain? 

Founded in May 2013 by Nicole D. Hayes, Voices Against the Grain is a Washington, D.C.-based bold teaching ministry that offers written and broadcast content to help audiences “advance God’s Kingdom in a ‘do your own thing’ society.” Voices Against the Grain (VATG) operates with four key objectives: 1) to bring clarity and restoration from deception, 2) to educate and equip believers and non-believers, 3) to encourage, and 4) to show love while sharing the truth. Voices Against the Grain content equips Believers by revealing Satan’s counterfeit schemes and directs them to the One who’s Word, promises and authority is truth and remains unchanged: Jesus Christ.
