Pastor Joel E. Gregory received his Bachelor’s Degree from Bowling Green State University in 1989, majoring in Communications, Personnel Administration and Management. He is also a 1993 graduate of the Word of Faith School of Ministry (Bible Training Center).
Upon graduating from the School of Ministry, Pastor Gregory served as a Campus Minister at Oakland University’s United Students for Christ from 1993 to 1994 while working for Ford Motor Company in Dearborn, Michigan. He was ordained and licensed at Word of Faith International Christian Center in 1994. Shortly afterwards, he was appointed as the Youth Pastor of Word of Faith Christian Center in Detroit, Michigan and few months later at Faith Christian Center in the Atlanta, Georgia area. Pastor Gregory served in this capacity simultaneously for five years, and during this time of leadership the Glory Phi God ministry was birthed. Glory Phi God was based on I Corinthians 6:20, which states “For you are bought with a price: therefore, glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” God has used this ministry to affect the lives of young people across this country and abroad. From there Pastor Gregory served as an assistant pastor and the Director of Education at Word of Faith International Christian Center. His responsibilities included oversight of the Bible Training Center, Faith Christian Academy (Grades K4-8th), the WOF Athletic Department, Layperson’s Bible School, and Work Place Wisdom Institute/Kingdom Business Institute. His leadership influenced excellence and growth within these departments.
Pastor Gregory’s leadership style places great emphasis on oneness, honor and integrity. He believes that the best way to affect lives is to live the example that Jesus set in the Bible impacting people with God’s love and truth. Pastor Gregory is best known as a loving husband and proud father, who firmly understands that his first ministry is to his family.
Pastor Gregory has faithfully and loyally served God in ministry for the past 19 years of full time ministry. He was installed as Senior Pastor of Faith Christian Center Church of Orlando on July 15, 2007 by its founder, Bishop George L. Davis. Most recently Pastor Gregory served as Senior Pastor of Faith Christian Center, Smyrna, GA from September 2009 until September 2013 making an impact in the Metropolitan Atlanta area.
