Greg was born in Alexandria, Louisiana on April 17, 1967. Out of the six children his mother gave birth to, he was the only one that was born in his grandmother’s bed. Greg says that his life can be summed up as fighting for what you want out of life and never living under someone else agenda. He graduated from Abilene Christian University (ACU) in 1995 with a degree in Theology/Missiology. From 1992 to 1994 he served as a youth minister while attending ACU.
From 1995 to 1996 he lived in Costa Rica to learn the Spanish language. From 1996 to 1998 he served as a missionary in Puerto Ordaz, Venezuela. From 1999 to 2000 he served as an urban minister in New Orleans, Louisiana. From 2000 to 2018 he lived in a place he calls his “personal wilderness.” Greg says that many of the Goliaths he faced were during this time. He describes this time of his life as being in darkness with dim lights. He walked away from God because he perceived that God had walked away from him during some troubling times in his life.
On June 1st 2018, Greg had an encounter with God that changed his life and put him back on the path of being God’s servant. Greg is forever grateful to God for showing him mercy when he did not deserve it. After many years of being out of ministry, God has called Greg back into ministry to minister to the black community with the focus of challenging and equipping black men to reclaim their God-given authority of leadership.
Greg does this work through his nonprofit, GLP Equipping Black Men Enterprise. Greg is married to Angela Coleman-Phillips and resides in Baton Rouge, LA. He is the father of two sons and one daughter with three grandsons and one granddaughter.
