About Greg
  • Education: B.S. from Murray State University with a major in business management and minors in marketing and human resources. Masters of Ministry from Architekton School of Ministry
  • Experience: After college I started a sporting goods store and then purchased another one which I operated for 6 years. I sold those and purchased a monogram business which I converted to a full scale embroidery business. I operated this for 13 years. I sold this business in Southern Illinois to move to Pacific, Mo to pastor. In Pacific I was a substitute teacher for 8 years. During this time I was a bi-vocational pastor. I served as pastor to two churches in Illinois before moving to Missouri. I also spent two years as an evangelist. In September of 2008 I founded Altar Life Church.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I am honored that you are taking time to read one of my sermons or Bible studies. In reality, I know that I am only a scribe writing those things that the Spirit speaks to my heart. As you read them I pray that He will speak to you also and give true meaning to the words you are reading. May they be a blessing to you and anyone you may share them with. My desire is that they bring every reader and hearer closer to our wonderful Savior, Jesus Christ!
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: "Someone Will Cross This River" preached by Rev. B.H. Clendennon at Abundant Life Tabernacle in Germantown, Oh. My time at Architekton School of Ministry under the direction of Rev. Gary Hampton.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: The story of David and Goliath is so rich in significance to successful Christian living. The life of Moses is an absolute necessity for developing the right kind of church and church leadership. The story of Gideon is a wake-up call for the times we feel like crawling back into our caves only to worry and complain about the advances of the enemy. I love the story of the man who for many years of his married life was a drunk. His family lived in poverty and his only clothes were those he wore on his back, because he spent all he had on drink. After giving his life to Christ and experiencing the wonderful change, one evening while dressing for church he called up to his wife and asked her to bring down his suit. Her reply upon hearing his request was "which?" The next day he exclaimed to a friend, "Oh what a wonderful word, that word "which"!" It is wonderful to serve a God who offers such diversity and a world of choices!
  • Family: Wife - Karol Sons - Marcus, Jordan, Landon
  • What my parents think of my sermons: I’m their son. They love to hear me preach. They love to hear my brother also, but me the most. (Don’t tell him I said that)
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She says I am her favorite preacher.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: "Be yourself!" by Rev. George Davis in the early years of my ministry.
  • Books that have had an impact: John Maxwell’s books on leadership. Andy Stanley’s books on leadership. C. Peter Wagner’s books on church development. Dutch Sheets’ books on prayer.
  • Hobbies: Writing, fishing, golf, and spending time with my family.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. And I would sing "Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me!"
  • What I want on my tombstone: Jesus loves you!

    Contributed on Dec 28, 2009

    And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the more

  • Our Father, Who Art In Heaven...

    Contributed on Dec 28, 2009

    OUR FATHER, WHO ART IN HEAVEN... Jesus says that every time we come to God in prayer, we should begin with this pattern of recognition. Coming to Him in this way encourages and increases our expectations because we see Him as He is. Coming to Him in this way establishes our faith because we see more

  • About "Amen"

    based on 1 rating

    ABOUT "AMEN" Then, of course, there is the Amen. It signifies faithful and true. Some suppose it is taken from the initial letters of adoni melech neetnem: My Lord, the Faithful King. In the Greek, it means, "So be it," or "Let it be so." The main point is that Jesus says to end our prayer more

    Contributed on Dec 28, 2009

    When you were young, did you ever tie a towel around your neck, or have your mom make you a cape and then go running around the house screaming at the top of your lungs, jumping on and over furniture, throwing haymaker punches, and taking all sorts of imaginary bad guys into captivity? It was more
