Greg has been married to his lovely bride, Brittany for 18 years and they’ve been blessed by God with three children ages 8-14. The Lewis’ have been members of Redeemer Presbyterian Church since 2007 where Greg feels extremely blessed to serve as a deacon since February 2014.

Greg has been on the Board of Directors at Redeemer Day School (a ministry of RPC) since 2009, and has also been serving as a Board member at HOPE Women’s Center since February 2013.

Greg loves the encouragement and support of covenant community believers at RPC, but especially that the WORD is preached each and every week and the reminder of God’s grace and mercy unconditionally showered on us. He desires to love the saints well wherever he can.

On Greg’s current reading list is: Surprised by Grace, God’s Relentless Pursuit of Rebels by Tullian Tchividjian.


A couple verses Greg is currently memorizing are: “The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; He knows those who take refuge in Him.” (Nahum 1:7, ESV) and “Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:16, ESV)
