Rev. Greg Weeks

Senior Pastor

I grew up in Poplar Bluff in Southeast Missouri. I did my undergrad work at Central Methodist University in Fayette, Missouri, then went on to seminary at Emory University (Candler School of Theology) in Atlanta, Georgia.

I am married to Barbara, and we have two children. Our son Cameron is at Missouri State, and our daughter Emma is at Marquette High. When/if we happen to be all together during the summer, we enjoy vacationing along the Lake Michigan shoreline. My hobbies include reading, working out, softball, bowling, and the patience-producing game of golf.

I am passionate about the preaching/worship experience at Manchester UMC. Additionally, I enjoy writing, having written for the United Methodist Publishing House, Abingdon Press, and the Upper Room. I am currently a Faith Perspectives contributor for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

My earlier pastorates in the St. Louis area included Concord Trinity, Maplewood, and as an associate at Webster Hills. I also directed the Wesley Foundation campus ministry at Mizzou. I have served the Missouri Conference through work on the Board on Ordained Ministry, the Nominations Team, and the Finance and Administration Team. I am currently on the Episcopacy Committee, and have served as chairperson of the Gateway Central District’s Committee on Ordained Ministry.
