About Greg
  • Education: BA and working on a masters
  • Experience: 12 years full time as a youth pastor, 3 years as a youth director.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I am just a simple farm boy who got B’s in school.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Chuck Swindol sermon when I was 17 about what it means to be a young person of integrity and Lori Boshman, retired NHL hockey player who shared his testemony at camp when I was 12 years old.
  • Family: Wonderful wife, twin boy and girl born 2000, son born 2003 who passed away after 7 weeks, daugther born 2005.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: Proud, ushually anyway.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: Proud, ushaually, and she proof reads ALL my sermons, or else they SUCK.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Try not to use words like anyway, therefore, in conclusion, they just waist time and turn people’s brains off. (My old lead pastor) Learn to find your own style, you are never going to be the same as any other preacher.
  • Books that have had an impact: Bonhoffor; the Cost of Discipleship, Yancy; the Jesus I Never Knew.

  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Love Jesus more.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I confessed at 21 years old to burning down dad’s bail pile when I was 10 for the first time. Dad stood up and said, "So that’s what happened! You know we still have a wood shed at home."
  • What I want on my tombstone: Lived Loving Life for Christ Hard
