Okay, we are probably a bit biased, but we pretty much have the most amazing, gifted, and loving servants for Jesus on the planet! The Cross would not be what it is without them. We have an amazing group of servant leaders who help make the Cross happen every week. We would love for you to join the team as we believe that God wants to use you to draw others to Jesus and bring glory to God. We know that you are God’s masterpiece, His workmanship….He has given you gifts and talents to be a part of Him using you and connecting you to reach others.

He loves the ocean, beach volleyball and golf, sometimes drives an old jag (He inherited it from his dad!), is a photographer, loudly cheers for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and once won a free trip to Costa Rica in a “closest to the pin” competition.

Greg’s story is a long one of God’s grace and mercy. He became a real Jesus follower while working as a professional Fashion model in Paris and New York.  After working in the fashion industry for 15 years, Greg got called into ministry and worked for 15 years at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale before venturing out in faith with a small amazing team of people to plant The Cross Church in 2014. He is married to his beautiful wife Gaby and the two of them want to reach  people with the grace, love and hope of Jesus.

Ashleigh, was Pastor Greg’s wife of 22 years, who helped plant the Cross church prior to going to heaven from complications from cancer. She had an incredible impact on many lives and discipled many women who now attend the cross. We will miss her deeply, but her spirit and vision will live on in all that we do at the cross.

Ashleigh’s beauty was not just on the outside, but that beauty flowed even more so from within. Her life and legacy will live on through the lives she impacted that now attend the cross. We miss her and are thankful for her, but we know she is dancing in heaven, praising Jesus with a whole new, healthy body.
