Greg Holder is passionate about bringing the ancient truth of scripture to light in fresh ways, calling people from an unlikely mix of spiritual backgrounds to consider what it means to follow Jesus.
Greg and his wife, Robin, have two adult daughters who are married and live in St. Louis. They recently welcomed their first granddaughter.
With a diverse assortment of interests, gifts and training, including degrees in psychology and counseling, Greg also brings unique insight into the development of God-honoring relationships.
In 1997, Greg accepted the position of lead pastor at The Crossing, a small startup church in the St. Louis area with less than 100 people. Over 20 years later, The Crossing now reaches 8,000 people across 4 local campuses and a thriving online community.
Greg is an author/co-creator of the Advent Conspiracy movement. Through the movement and free resources, thousands of churches and families around the world have decided to celebrate Christmas in a counter-cultural way. As a contributing writer for The Voice, a new translation of scripture, Greg had the privilege of translating the book of Jeremiah.
His first solo writing project, The Genius of One, is about healthy culture—why it matters and how to get there. The follow-up book to The Genius of One, will be released in Fall 2020 through NavPress. Greg’s passion for cooperative relationships shines through with his unique brand of humor and story-telling.
Over the last two decades, the impact of Greg’s ministry has spread outside of St. Louis. He speaks at a variety of conferences and churches around the world about leadership, culture, and unity. Visit the partners page to read more about the local and global organizations Greg partners with.
