Under the sovereign leading of Almighty God, a group of godly people along with Pastor Greg Cercone planted The Master’s Church in June of 2020. Greg is very excited and grateful to God for the honor of pastoring a truly biblical church in Kingsport Tennessee.
Before planting The Master’s Church, Greg served as a Pastor-Teacher in Kingsport Tennessee for a little over 3 years. Prior to that he was a Pastor-Teacher in Central New Jersey for 9 1/2 years. He also served as an Associate Pastor and Pastoral Intern at churches in Upstate New York.
Greg earned a Master of Arts in Religion degree and a Master of Divinity degree from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in Lynchburg, Virginia. He and his wife Rene were married in 1999 and are the blessed parents of two cherished boys, Nathan and Luke.
Besides studying the Bible, his hobbies include family activities, sports, watching documentaries and getting outdoors. He loves to hike, canoe, bike, go four wheeling and do just about anything else out in the beauty of God’s creation!
Gary has been serving at The Master’s Church since its inception in June 2020. After receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Pastoral Theology from Arlington Baptist College in 1984 he served in various churches in Texas, Oklahoma, and Tennessee. Gary has been married to his wife Donna since 1978.
Dave is blessed to fulfill his calling to be an Elder and enjoy the expository preaching he has sought for many years. Dave has written a couple of books, one of which is a result of his studies in seminary where he earned a Master of Theology degree, piecemeal, over many years. He and his wife Hilary met in Ventura, California and have been married for twenty–five years. They have three children, Emma, Ben and Reese. They moved to the Tri-Cities area over ten years ago from Nevada.
