GREGORY A. YOUNG was born in Middletown, Connecticut, to parents, Mr. Willie James and Mrs. Judy B. Young.
At the young age of fifteen, Gregory accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour. Shortly thereafter, at age sixteen, Gregory recognized that there was a calling on
his life to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In 1982 he started preparation towards fulfilling his life mission.
In 1995 Reverend Gregory A. Young was installed to his first pastoral position. He served in the capacity of full-time pastor at Thankful Baptist Church, located in Augusta, Georgia until July 2007. On February 21, 2011, Reverend Gregory A. Young was elected as the thirteenth pastor of the Historic Mount Pisgah Baptist Church of Orangeburg, South Carolina.
Pastor Young is an anointed young man of God, qualified to preach, teach and exalt God's word. As a leader, his primary goal has been "to share the message of God's salvation and love through Jesus Christ". God has blessed him to become a phenomenal speaker at church conventions, seminars, bible colleges and much more. In his services he has pointed many sinners to Calvary.
As a role model to many, he motivates Christian followers to exercise their authority over the devil by realizing their position in Christ. He believes that "through biblical preaching of God's WORD OF HOPE to our generation, all denominational barriers, transcends human hypocrisy and frailty will reach the heart of mankind".
As we proclaim Jesus, The Christ, as "Head of the Church" and the manifested word of God, our goal is to teach the word of God with simplicity and understanding so that it may be applied to our everyday lives in practical and effective manner; thereby changing our world and all those with whom we come into contact, ultimately making a mark that cannot be erased.
On May 2, 2000, Pastor Gregory A. Young was united in Holy Matrimony to Ms. Sarah Mechell Simms of New York City. They reside in Augusta, Georgia.
