Greg was raised in a Christian home, but did not repent of his sin and follow Jesus Christ until after his first year in college. The Lord put a deep desire for ministry in his heart following this conversion, and Greg was called to the San Gabriel Community Church pastoral staff in 1981.
Over the years his responsibilities and titles have changed, encompassing student ministries, adult ministries, worship and music ministries, executive roles, school administration, and the SGCC Bible Institute. His current Senior Associate responsibilities involve coordinating ministries on campus, as well as teaching, training/equipping, member care, and involvement with the Worship Team. Overseeing the church’s 100th anniversary celebrations in 2018 was a special privilege and joy.
Greg and his wife Suzanne met at SGCC where they were involved in music ministry together, and were married in 1982. They have three adult children: Stephen (wife Becca, son Joshua, daughter Julia); Tricia (husband Anthony, daughter Jenevieve, son Benjamin); and Jonathan.
He has a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance from Cal State LA, a Master of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary, and a Master of Education degree in School Administration from Azusa Pacific University. For years he taught private piano, and he served as the announcer for a Christian radio program for over a decade. Greg, his siblings and his three children all attended San Gabriel Christian School.
Greg enjoys spending time with family, music, Biblical languages, reading, and projects around the house. His favorite authors include John Piper, Daniel Fuller, C.S. Lewis, Jonathan Edwards, and J.R.R. Tolkien.
