Greg is a native of Michigan where he grew up in a Christian home and attended Spring Arbor College. In 1990 he and his wife, Laura, moved to the North Shore to pursue graduate studies. While Greg was completing a Masters and Ph.D. in Philosophical Theology at Boston College, Laura worked in residence life at Gordon College and earned a MA in Counseling from Gordon Conwell. Greg spent 12 years as Dean of Chapel at Gordon College where he also founded the Christian Vocation Institute. One of Greg’s greatest joys is helping others gain new insights and deepen their faith. He enjoys communicating the truths of Christ in a way that helps others grow closer to God and experience greater freedom. Together, Greg and Laura direct the New England Institute on Faith, Work & Life helping others make vital connections between the Gospel of Jesus and their daily lives.
Greg and Laura have three grown sons – Nick, Josh and Eli – and live in Beverly where they can be frequently spotted sipping coffee in one of the local cafés, walking near Dane St. Beach or watching sunsets at Independence Park.
Greg has been worshiping and serving as Pastor at Church in the Cove since January 2017.

Sarah has been working with all ages of youth at Church in the Cove in various capacities since 2007, and has a deep passion for working with and ministering to children. She grew up in Beverly and graduated from Gordon College with degrees in English and Elementary Education in 2009. After graduating, Sarah worked as a 3rd grade teacher in Revere for four years. She married her husband, Tom in 2012, and they have three beautiful daughters, Makenna, Olivia and Jocelyn. Tom also works alongside Sarah with the youth of Church in the Cove. This job allows Tom and Sarah to fulfill their passion for working with children by teaching Sunday School, planning and coordinating Vacation Bible School, running Kid's Fun Night during summer months, and giving the Children's Sermon during worship services.
When they are not with family or at the church you can find Tom and Sarah jogging, playing volleyball, reading a book, or spending time with extended family and friends. Sarah and Tom feel honored to be able to teach the children of our community about the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through the teachings in the Bible!
