Greg Holder accepted the position of Lead Pastor at The Crossing in 1997 after serving for five years as an elder and leader
on the worship team for our young, start-up church. His visionary leadership and unique teaching style has brought The Crossing
from a small church of 100 to a multi-site church of thousands. With degrees in psychology (B.A.) and counseling (M.A.), Greg
has also brought marketplace and clinical experience to his role as a lead pastor.
Greg has the unique ability to interpret deep truths of the Bible into personal and tangible
applications. He challenges us to consider pertinent historical and linguistic details in Scripture, without missing an opportunity
to weave in humor and personal stories. He brings ancient truths of Scripture to light in fresh ways, while calling those from an
unlikely mix of spiritual backgrounds to love as they have been loved.
Beyond providing leadership and vision for The Crossing,
Greg is a contributing writer to the Bible translation THE VOICE, a co-creator of Advent Conspiracy (a global initiative challenging
churches and individuals to celebrate Christmas with simplicity while giving outrageously to those in need), and the author of
The Genius of One, which will be available in bookstores in the fall of 2017.
Greg and his wife Robin live in Wildwood, MO, with
their two dogs and are proud parents to their daughters Alex and Tori (their husbands too).
