Youth Directors

Shane & Joy Gregg

Hello, my name is Shane Gregg.  I was born and raised here in Knoxville, TN.  As a child I remember watching my father as he stood each Sunday before the congregation and preached the word of God.  I looked up to him and always said to myself “one day, I will be just like him.” 

As the years went by and I began to grow into a young man of my own, the dream slowly faded away.  In the year 2000 I was joined back up after many years with a young lady that had stolen my heart years before.  As we reunited we both realized that Gods plan for us was to spend the rest of our lives together.  We were married in that same year.  She was very involved in her church and taught the high school students on Wednesday nights.  One day she asked if I would be interested in teaching a lesson to the students.  I kind of chuckled to myself, “me…teaching teenagers?”  I accepted her offer and started studying. I had my notes, my page markers, and even a few jokes to loosen up the students a bit. 

As I stood before those young people that night I was amazed at the drawing that I had to grow closer to them.  The passion that I felt to teach them about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  The desire that I had to show them the true path to Joy, Peace, and Happiness.  That group of kids (students is the politically correct word) changed my life forever.  God had called this good ol’ country boy from the Asbury Community into the field of student ministry.  I didn’t quite fill my daddy’s shoes, but I found Gods plan for me and his calling to serve in ministry. 

My beautiful wife, Joy Gregg, and I began our journey in youth ministry in the year 2000.  Our boys, Zavin and Zach were 3 and 4 years old at the time and they were there by our sides each and every step of the way.  Our first few years of “getting our feet wet” were served under the guidance of Pastor Randy Troutman at Stoney Point Baptist Church.  He is always so encouraging and a great mentor.  We are honored to serve by his side once again.  We served as the youth directors at Stoney Point for the last 14 years.  We joined the staff of Marbledale Baptist Church in October of 2015. 

We are blessed and honored to serve and continue to fulfill Gods calling with the beautiful people here at Marbledale.  God has blessed us in ways that we could never have imagined.  We both have a love for young people and a love for Jesus Christ.  We would love to have the opportunity to meet you, have a little fun together along the way, and tell you how to experience love eternal.
