Comment to those looking at my sermons: I truly hope that as you read the words contained on these pages that they will come to mean as much to you as they do to me. These sermons are not mine but I believe them to be the words of the master, breathed into me, that I might share with the seeker who hungers to hear, the pure and holy word of God. It is my prayer that together we will discover what the spirit is saying to the Church in the 21st century.
Sermon or series that made a difference: A sermon by my mentor and spiritual dad (my Elijah)
The sermon title was "Give me a double" and detailed the relationship between Elijah and Elisha. It was a defining moment in my ministry.
I preached his funeral a little over a year ago but it will be a sermon that I will remember for the rest of my life.
My mentors name: Charles Bolen
Family: Greg has been married to his wife Stephanie for 9 years. They have one son Nathan.
Best advice given to me about preaching: "Son, Always remember that when you are preaching, if you have one finger pointed at the congregation you have three pointing back at you."

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: That Jesus is who he claims to be; God incarnate THE WAY, THE TRUTH and THE LIFE. Not A way but THE WAY etc... I would want to convey that according to the word of God He has not changed. Those things that he has done he still does and will do if we will just take Him at His word.
Something funny that happened while preaching: Probably the time I got choked on a bug while preaching at an outdoor crusade. I was trying to get it swallowed, the crowed thought I was getting emotional and so they started praising the Lord and applauding. What they thought was a real mighty move of God was only a preacher trying to swallow a bug. I have often said however that The Lord has a wonderful since of humor and will do what ever it takes to move a crowd. It just so happens that it was a bug in the throat of a preacher that night. Thank the Lord that the bug was willing to sacrifice himself for the service that night. I just wish the Lord would have asked me. HAHA!!
What I want on my tombstone: Truly he was a friend of God.
