music outreach, career placement & entrepreneurial projects in the marketplace.

Greg has over 20+ years of experience in mentoring people of all ages. He addresses the most common yet often-times not talked about issues like financial goals & budgeting, the role of sex, intimacy and candid, open communication in marriage, as well as,
the need for sound doctrine and freedom from legalism that is so lacking in today's church.
His promotion of the Gospel with truth, freedom, and joy,
along with other ministers being raised up, is a fresh  voice and wind of change to ministry.

He has a published book, "The Real Deal" (Following Jesus 101)  *See library page.

Greg is also a Licensed Real Estate Broker (MN. License # 40112115)
He approaches that business like George Bailey in "It's a Wonderful Life"
by finding people their "dream home."
