Rev. Dr. J.T. Greenleaf
I have been Lead Pastor of Redlands 1st since July 2013. Since 1989 I’ve served as a pastor in United Methodist Churches throughout Southern California and even one in Hawaii. I have been married to Sally for more than 30 years and we have two young adult children.
I feel deeply called to serve the local church. I see it as my ministry to nurture others toward their ministry. Each of us is called by God and uniquely gifted to serve creation and the human community. I work hard to help people find their passion to carry the love of Christ into the world.
I am also passionate about leading people into the mission field. I have served multiple missions including Sierra Service Project, Katrina rebuilds, local mission work in various places in Southern California and most recently a ten day mission to Guatemala. Few things are as transformational as work in the mission field.
I am a marathon runner and triathlete. I enjoy playing and watching most sports, but if I’m not training or competing I enjoy golf the most.
