Although arriving in Yukon in June 2016, Greg is a native Oklahoman. As a Methodist preacher's kid, he has lived all over the state. While his family roots are in Northwest Oklahoma, he has lived in Southeastern Oklahoma nearly half his life. He graduated from Eufaula High School, where he first met his wife Hadley, but their relationship wouldn't start for another decade. Hadley teaches kindergarten at Central Elementary in Yukon. They have two children, Spencer who is a student at OU and Bridget who is a student at Austin College.
Greg is passionate about helping people grow in faith as disciples of Jesus Christ. He was a youth minister for nine years before beginning his preaching ministry, serving as Senior Minister in Snyder, Heavener, Durant, and Duncan before coming to Yukon. He has ministry related degrees from Oklahoma City University (Bachelor's), Brite Divinity School at Texas Christian University (Master's), and Drew Theological School (Doctorate). He has also authored four books related to preaching.
Greg's hobbies include being an armchair quarterback for the OU Sooners and the Dallas Cowboys, where his unsolicited advice is graciously ignored. He also follows basketball with the Sooners and the OKC Thunder.
