Ministry Services

Life Event Officiating – Weddings – Funerals

The celebrations of our life should be meaningful to us – created with our beliefs, convictions, and preferences in mind. Gregory will write, or help you write and create, your wedding, handfasting, or commitment celebration, a loved one’s funeral, a baby dedication, naming, or baptism service, or any other life celebration or event.

As a licensed, ordained minister, Gregory can sign and validate marriage licenses.

Pastoral Counseling & Spiritual Direction

Sometimes we simply need someone to walk with us through life’s ups and downs, someone objective to talk with – someone to listen to us and offer structured advice and input from a spiritual and philosophical perspective. Gregory engages with individuals on a wide range of topics, offering compassionate wisdom to help you make sense of things and find your place and purpose wherever you are in life.


Many of us yearn for times set aside to reflect on our lives and where we’re headed. Maybe you need to recenter yourself after a divorce, birth, illness, death, or even career change. Gregory partners with dozens of West Michigan retreat and spiritual centers to help guide your time of reflection and searching weather it be a single day event or longer.

Public Speaking, Teaching & Workshops

Gregory is available for speaking and teaching engagements, capable of presenting on a range of subjects including finding meaning today in the scriptures, the role of myth, social justice and nonviolence, promoting compassionate cultural change, spiritual growth and reconciliation, and spiritual and theological trends.
