As the son of a Baptist pastor, Greg Henson always knew that God loved him and sent his only son to die for his sins. However, Greg didn’t develop a true faith in God until after nearly losing his life in a car accident. Months of recovery left him in awe of God’s power and mercy—drawing him closer to God.
Experiences at church camp as a student and director as well as serving the church as a worship leader, youth pastor, and senior pastor, led Greg to place a very high value on the importance of discipleship. Later, through consulting work with the Association of Theological Schools and through his work at Northern Seminary in Lombard, IL., Greg developed a passion for the role theological education plays in the Church.
His passion for the Church coupled with a desire to see theological education reconnect with its roots in local ministry contexts compelled Greg to deeply explore the many facets of theological education—giving him a depth of knowledge and breadth of experience beyond his years. Today, he is a man of strong personal faith and is committed to equipping kingdom-minded individuals for service to the Church both locally and worldwide.
In the fall of 2013, Greg accepted the role as the twelfth president of Sioux Falls Seminary, officially beginning on February 3, 2014.
