Pastor Gregg Cantelmo has been active in Christian ministry for more than 35 years. He was involved in youth leadership and rural evangelism as a teen at Church of the Open Door in downtown Los Angeles under the ministry of Dr. J. Vernon McGee. As a college student, he served in leadership at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, CA under Dr. John MacArthur. Pastor Gregg graduated from UCLA with a degree in philosophy and then received his Masters of Divinity from Talbot Theological Seminary. While in seminary, Gregg taught Bible and theology courses at Logos Bible Institute, later serving as Dean of Students and Academic Dean there. He then continued his educational training responsibilities at The Master’s College. As an associate pastor he served on the Elders’ Marriage Council and spoke at a number of Shepherd’s Conferences at Grace Church. Committed to personal discipleship, leadership training, and team ministry, Pastor Gregg next served faithfully for almost ten years as Senior Pastor of Monroe Community Chapel in Monroe, Washington. He saw the church grow and develop to become the largest evangelical church in the area. In 1995 he accepted a call to pastor in Scottsdale, Arizona where again discipleship and leadership training were key factors. In the spring of 2003, the search committee and elders of Bridgeway Community Church unanimously agreed to call Gregg to be Senior Pastor, which he accepted. With a strong commitment to biblical teaching and team ministry, Pastor Gregg is excited to see members of the body express their giftedness in serving and caring for one another. His leadership style is one of influence, and along with truth, highly values grace and mercy. Committed to missions, Pastor Gregg is also an adjunct missionary with JARON Ministries International, and teaches "personal purity" seminars and spiritual development to church leaders in the United States and overseas. Pastor Gregg is studying for his Doctorate of Ministry degree at Phoenix Seminary where he has taught classes in the Christian ministry department.
