Dean of Ministries, Professor of Biblical Studies
Ministry today requires leaders to be effective in communication, understanding of culture, innovative yet biblical in philosophy. The challenges and opportunities in communication and connecting today are incredible. For that reason, we will provide training in formal (preaching and teaching) as well as interpersonal communication. We will also include ministry leadership, business, church growth strategy, cross-cultural ministry and counseling courses designed to address the needs of churches today.

He is the senior pastor of Valley Baptist Church in Perrydale, Oregon, where he has served since 1992. Before starting his teaching career at Corban in 1991, he worked as an associate pastor and church planter.

Personal: Greg married his wife, Tiffany, in 1991, and they have three children: Bradley, Bailey and Bethany. He loves the outdoors: camping, hunting, fishing, hiking and cycling. He’s also a hardcore Dallas Cowboys fan.
Why Corban: “Jesus spent three years with 12 students, one of whom flunked out. The remaining 11 changed the world. We spend four years with a few hundred students who also change the world. There’s no better investment of my life."
