Gregg brenes

Senior Pastor
Gregg Brenes is the Senior Pastor of Grace Bible Church Honolulu. Born and raised in Orange County, California, Pastor Gregg graduated with a Biology degree from the University of California at Irvine.

Believe it or not, it was a lecture on the intricacies of the kidney that made an impact on him and convinced him of God’s existence, sparking a new curiosity to know this God who masterfully created all things. After coming to know Christ on the college campus, Gregg gave up his life-long dream of becoming a doctor to pursue his growing passion to reach young people with the Gospel.

Gregg has been involved in campus ministry for over twenty-five years and has assisted with planting churches in Hawaii, Texas and California. From 2006-2008, Gregg and his family lived in Nashville where he served on the national staff of Every Nation Ministries, fulfilling the role as the Executive Director for Every Nation Campus.

Feeling a strong call from God to return to Hawaii, in 2010 Pastor Gregg became the senior pastor of Grace Honolulu with a vision to build a diverse, growing, multi-cultural, multi-generational church in Honolulu where people can belong before they believe, grow in their relationship with Christ and pursue their God-given purpose.

On his days off, you can probably find him bodyboarding at Makapu’u with his family. He and his wife, Kris, have been married for over twenty-five years and have five children – Rebecca, Brandon, Justin, Jordan and Jessica.
