Greg Smith

By God’s grace I came to faith when I was 18 through God using a group of my friends that loved me and shared the gospel with me.  I have had the privilege of being married to Stephanie for 28 years and serving in the local church as a pastor for 29 years.  We are blessed with 2 adult children who are laboring for the Lord.  During my 29 years in paid ministry, I have served in three churches: Christ Church in Lake Forest, Illinois; Grace Church in Racine, Wisconsin and now West Evangelical Free Church.  I have served at West EFC for 18 years.

God has graciously provided me with some amazing mentors through my years of ministry.  I am absolutely passionate about investing in those serving in Student Ministry.  I currently meet with 10-15 youth pastors each month in mentoring relationships.  I am committed to seeing the gospel multiply through students who respond to Jesus call on their lives for salvation and to equip them to labor for Christ. 

For fun I like to kickbox, hunt, play strategy games and make homemade pizza with my woodfire oven.
