Most recently Greg has been serving as the Rector of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Ojai, California. Before that, he was President and C.E.O. of the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles. Greg also served as the President and C.E.O. of the Alaska Humanities Forum. He has taught at Alaska Pacific University and at the University of Alaska, Anchorage.

Greg has led various churches and college chaplaincies. He is an international expert on philosophical pragmatism. His previous experiences will be a great blessing to our shared life. We look forward to many opportunities for you to welcome him and to learn more about his story.
