Do you know Greg Taylor?

Elder Greg Taylor has a passion for sharing Jesus with young people and inspiring youth and young adults for mission and service.

Pastor Greg has two amazing children named Matthew and Joshua and is married to the beautiful Kimberly Taylor. After graduating from Spring Valley Academy in 1997, Greg found a summer job as a camp counselor at Camp Cedar Falls in southern California where he first met his wife Kim. Both Greg and Kim fell in love with camp ministry and continued to work at Camp Au Sable in Michigan for the next few years. It was at Camp Au Sable that Greg felt the call to ministry and decided to study theology/secondary education at Andrews University. After graduating from Andrews University both Kim and Greg taught at Grand Rapids Adventist Academy in Michigan and later accepted the call to Spencerville Adventist Academy in Maryland where Greg served as the Bible teacher and chaplain.
