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 in today’s world.
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 reaches nearly 10,000 people in person and online.
Greg is author/co-creator of the Advent Conspiracy movement. Through the movement and free resources, thousands of churches and families around the globe 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.
The Genius of One, is about developing healthy culture—why it matters and how to get there. Greg has taught these principles to churches, pastors, and business leaders around the world. His follow-up book, Never Settle, is a practical roadmap for anyone who feels that their faith is lukewarm and bland. In all of his writing, Greg’s passion for scripture combines with his unique brand of humor and storytelling.
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, unity, and calling.
