Alumni Spotlight - Greg Story, '81

6/26/2013

Greg Story

Class of 1981

What year did you graduate from Trevecca? 1981

What are your favorite Trevecca memories? Relationships that were established ( friends, professors, I met wife at TNU ) I enjoyed being a part of the social life, participating intramural sports and being mentored by professors like Dr. Ray Dunning, Dr. Hal Cauthron, Dr. Don Dunnington. I established some great friendships that are still an important part of my life today. Playing pranks on the only freshmen in our suite:  Steve Wise. Bob Milburn, Howard Wilson, Bob King, Paul Montemuro and Kevin Ulmet still laugh about some of the crazy things we did!

Where has your ministry taken you? After leaving TNU, I went to NTS and graduated in 1984. Then I begin pastoring which has taken me to  East Gadsden , AL; Cullman ,AL; Gallatin, TN; and Jasper,AL where I was elected as DS of the Alabama North District. I have also been able to travel to many cities in the US through church conferences and many part of the world through mission trips.

What are you most looking forward to about your new assignment? Having the ability to work with young pastors through a mentoring relationship and to help give leadership and guidance to churches who want impact the Kingdom.

What do you hope you will be able to do through your new ministry? Develop a team of pastors and laypeople who are working together with a shared vision to reach the unchurched in North Alabama with the gospel and make Christlike disciples.

Any words of insight that you would give to those serving in ministry? Keep your focus on Jesus as your model for ministry, stay humble, depend on His Spirit. Pray for wisdom, passion, discipline, self-control and a heart of compassion for people. Do not let your ministry rob you of  family times with your spouse and children. Always make family a priority!!
