A native of Orange County, NY, Greg has primarily lived in Ohio since 1984 where he worked in corporate America for over 30 years, serving in numerous executive management positions as well as a small business owner. A passionate and relational communicator, Greg's life experiences have prepared and equipped him for effective ministry at Transformations Church. From humble beginnings of supporting himself at the age of 17 to successfully leading Fortune 500 companies, to grieving by his first wife's bedside at the age of 37, to forging a blended family and learning to adapt to and overcome the physical limitations of chronic pain and auto immune disease, Greg approaches his pastoral ministry with compassion, transparency, and a hearty dose of laughter in effort to foster meaningful relationships and inspire Biblically-based community within the church.
Greg and his wife Heather have been married for 14 years. They have two grown daughters, two grandchildren, and a spunky dog named Lileigh. In his free time, Greg enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing golf, riding his motorcycle, watching movies, and perfecting latte art.

A life-long Buckeye, Heather has always called Ohio her home. She is passionate about encouraging and empowering others with Biblical truths for purposeful living. Her life experiences, such as losing both of her parents to cancer; overcoming anorexia, bulimia, and self-harm; becoming an "instant" mom to two teenage girls at the age of 24 and learning to live with multiple ongoing health conditions have enabled Heather to lead others in an authentic and engaging worship experience where in spite of life's challenges and circumstances, hope, peace, forgiveness, and joy can be found in the presence of God.
Happily married, Heather is a proud wife, mom, and Gigi to Greg, her daughters, and her grandchildren. She enjoys getting lost in a good book, blogging, experimenting with new paleo recipes, and long afternoon naps.
