Greg Doss

Greg and his wife, Kim, have three grown daughters, Rachel, Sarah, and Hannah. They also have a grandson, Calvin, whom they adore. Greg is a graduate of Florida State University and Asbury Theological Seminary. He was ordained in 1990 and has served churches in Central and North Florida.

Greg has served as Ponte Vedra UMC's lead pastor since July 2016.

Greg has a passion for developing a setting for real friendship among persons participating in the life of the church. His desire is to work for Ponte Vedra UM Church to become like an extended family for one another. Guests need to sense the authentic presence of Christ Jesus among us in a setting where disciples of Jesus grow in love with Him and one another. Our church welcomes all who would come among us, seeking to know Christ through personal relationship that He offers. Pastor Greg believes in the spiritual practices that are essential for every follower of Jesus to become the person he or she is designed to be, by God's grace and transforming power. We invite you to consider our church's offerings for all ages. Daily Bible reading, personal and family prayer, gathering regularly for worship, and getting involved in a small group Bible study -all are keys to this spiritual growth. And Greg loves seeing Jesus Christ use the church to transform the world!
