I was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia. My home church is FCC of Savannah - the oldest Disciples congregation east of the Mississippi River (1819).
After my Call to the ministry I preached my first sermon when I was 15 in the Easter Sunrise Service there. I was also ordained in that historic congregation upon graduation from Chicago.
Educationally, I have degrees from Texas Christian University, the University of Chicago Divinity School, Christian Theological Seminary, Capella University, and a Graduate Certificate from the Mendoza College of Business of the University of Notre Dame.
I have served Disciples congregations in Indianapolis, Indiana; Moline, Illinois; and South Bend, Indiana. Since I have partnership standing with the UCC, I have served UCC churches in South Bend, Indiana; Port Orange, Florida; and Evansville, Indiana.
I have served as a volunteer Law Enforcement Chaplain with the Indiana State Police and the Volusia County Sheriff's Department for a combined total of over 15 years. I also have served as a part-time substance abuse counselor and been a part-time instructor at DePaul University in Chicago in the past.
That's the formal "stuff" - Whew...I'm glad that's over!
In my heart I have always wanted to be a pastor and preacher. I am very happily married to my wife, Lisa, who is very musically talented. We have 5 children and 9 grandchildren between us. Well, that doesn't include our beloved Sheltie "Rudy" - but he doesn't know he's a dog and we don't tell him!
I enjoy good music, movies, food, and love fishing.
That's enough for now! Lisa and I are excited to begin our journey with you this month. Please pray for us as we unpack and settle into our new home.
A Parting thought from Greg
I want to thank Pittsboro Christian Church for the opportunity to be your interimpastor for the past six months. The challenge of being the gathered, scattered because of the pandemic is an experience that I am sure none of us will forget and none of us will want to repeat. That said, your faithfulness in continuing to support and serve the church during these very different days has been remarkable. I am thankful to have been able to witness your devotion. I pray the best for you as you continue to seek to be Christ’s church in this community. God bless you and guide you in the days ahead. Peace, Greg
