It is my job as a pastor to feed the people of God with the Word of God, so preaching and worship is my top priority…Also, I see my major role in ministry of the Word and prayer at the bed-side in the hospital, care facility, and the homes of the sick.” Pastor Greg lives in Hudson with his wife Karen.
