Pastoral Staff

Dr. Gregory K. Widener

Senior Pastor

Brother Greg is a native Oregonian who has spent most his life and career on the other side of the country, coming to us most recently from West Virginia.  With experience as a pastor, interim pastor, evangelist, professor, and church elder, Brother Greg is excited to begin ministering here at First Christian of Grants Pass.  


He likes to go by "Brother" because it is "not so much a title as it is a spiritual truth."  Indeed, in Christ, we are Brothers and Sisters.  And we are thankful to welcome this Brother to be our pastor.

Joshua Johnsen

For the last 6+ years, Josh has been richly blessed to serve in many capacities at First Christian as it's CLC.  On June 26 he submitted his resignation in response to God's call to prepare for a new yet-to-be-known chapter of ministry.  On June 28th, Josh shared with the congregation that July 2020 would be his last month in this role.
