Greg Weyrich has served as the Lead Pastor at VCKC since 2012. He received his Masters of Science Degree from Eastern Kentucky and also attended seminary at Ashland Theological Seminary where he was recorded in the Evangelical Friends Church Eastern Region (EFCER) in 1990. He brings to this position years of experience as an educator and coach at both the high school and college levels.
During Pastor Greg's 15 years of coaching college baseball, he served as a head coach at high school, junior college and NCAA division III levels and as an assistant coach at the NCAA division I level, 5 times leading teams to the college world series, with one national runners up in 2001. What he treasured most from his coaching years, were the relationships he cultivated with students and athletes along the way. He continues his love of mentoring by leading young men's groups and discipling others in the community.
His approach to the preaching and teaching of scripture are based upon the firm condition that all of scripture is divinely inspired, and healthy spirituality is completely dependent upon regular engagement with God's Word. His systematic progression through entire books of the Bible from the pulpit provides the congregation with God's whole message and allows it to accomplish God's purposes; expanding hearts, minds and lives, as each of us finds our place in God's story.
He is married to Donna, a professor at Columbus State Community College, who shares his devotion to the Word of God and delights in the diverse community of Christ followers at VCKC. They have 2 beautiful daughters, Lydia and Micaela. The Weyrichs live in a quiet rural setting where they host retreat groups and other gatherings at their lodges and cabin, and tend their small menagerie of dogs and horses.
