Greg Cercone

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. This was Greg’s burden for 24 years. God had planned this long ago and gave Greg that desire, which now has become an exciting reality in the Tri-Cities area of Tennessee. 

Before planting The Master’s Church, Greg served as a Pastor-Teacher here in Kingsport for 3 1/2 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 the upstate New York area. 

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 have been married for 22 years and are the blessed parents of two cherished boys, Nathan and Luke. 

Besides studying the Bible, his hobbies include family activities, sports, reading, football cards, watching documentaries and getting outdoors. He loves to hike, canoe, bike and do just about anything out in the beauty of God’s creation!
