Growing up in Ethiopia as the son of missionary parents, Don & Beth Alice Johnson, Greg developed his passion for the church and his heart for people that propelled him through college (Milligan College & Emmanuel Christian Seminary) and a lifetime of Christian ministry.
Greg and his wife, Becky, raised their two daughters, Jocelyn & Kristin, planted churches, developed leaders and led community development and famine-relief projects among the Maasai tribe of Kenya (1978-1997). As Director of Marketplace Ministries for CMFI (1997-2002), Greg developed partnerships, strategies and teams to get Christian workers into places not open to traditional mission methods.
Greg accepted the call as Lead Pastor of Generations Christian Church (formerly First Christian Church of Tarpon Springs) in 2002 and, just like in their mission career, Greg and Becky continue connecting people to Christ. Greg is a relational and visionary leader – genuinely caring about people and continually seeking to advance the kingdom of Christ – across the street and around the globe!
