Praise & Worship
Pastor Greg Pratt grew up in Warsaw, Indiana where his grandmother pastored a church and his father served in various roles. After an auto accident that could have taken his life when he was 20, Greg truly began to serve God. God used the accident to change his life and bring him to where he is today.
After he and his wife Donna were married, he served as a children’s pastor until God opened the door for him to become a licensed minister. He earned a degree in Accounting/Christian education at Lee University and served in several roles. He became an associate pastor for about 3 years before being called to Arizona the first time in 1992. He and Donna planted a church in Payson, Arizona that started in their living room. Over a seven-year period, that church grew from his living room to a storefront, to a building, and is a thriving church in the community today.
He and Donna moved back to Indiana in 2005 to be with their families and help a small, struggling church until returning to Arizona in 2009 to pastor Life Church at South Mountain. Greg has a passion for churches that are struggling or broken spiritually, numerically and financially, and God has used him to bring them to stability and healing.
Greg has successfully completed several programs including discipling, mentoring, and chaplaincy through Lee University and the Church of God. He has served as a chaplain in hospitals and funeral homes, and through teaching the Word of God, training, discipling and mentoring. His goals are to continue to pastor here at Life Church, to add staff members, and to take on more of a mentoring role for other pastors and leaders.
Greg and Donna recently celebrated 39 years of marriage. They have five children ranging from 15 to 35 years old. In his spare time Greg loves to spend time with his children and grandchildren. He also enjoys hands-on projects around the house and the church and is an avid golfer. His primary aspiration, though, is to love God and his family.
