Rev. Greg Larsen
About Interim Pastor
Reverend Larsen is a life-long member of the United Church of Christ, growing up on the Northeast side of Grand Rapids and being raised at Second Congregational Church, UCC. His parents and older brothers still reside in the Grand Rapids metropolitan area. Pastor Greg has been ordained for 13 years and has worked full and part time callings as a lay person since 2000, from Michigan, to Florida, to Colorado, and now back in Michigan since 2014. His immediate family include his 8 year old daughter, Sophie, and his adopted greyhound, Veronica. He loves RVing and camping and exploring the outside world, wherever the RV can go. Pastor Greg has family roots in Big Rapids. As a matter of fact, his father was raised at the United Church of Big Rapids up until he met his mother at Ferris (then) College and relocated to Grand Rapids in the early 1960s. While Rev. Larsen knows a bit about the Big Rapids community, he looks forward to greeting everyone in early August and helping The United Church of Big Rapids begin a successful time of pastoral transition.
