As a student he was active with the Canterbury club and with Harcourt Parish Episcopal Church. Following graduation, Greg served with the AmeriCorps program, City Year Cleveland, working with ninth grade students at John Adams High School on literacy, behavior, and attendance.

Ordained a deacon on June 1, 2017, he anticipates ordination to the priesthood in December of 2017.
Greg has a passion for monasticism, youth ministry, baking bread and cooking for friends, ecumenism, and building bridges across the Anglican Communion. He shares his time and ministry across Lorain County, as a part of a new venture by the Episcopal Church in Lorain County. Greg leads a shared youth group (grades 6-12) for the youth of the county. He is active in the Province V Campus Ministry Network of the Episcopal Church, working with students at Oberlin College.
