In 2004 Greg King joined the faculty of the School of Religion at his alma mater, Southern Adventist University, as professor of biblical studies. He became dean in 2007. Prior to coming to Southern, he was on the faculty at Pacific Union College in Angwin, California for 17 years, serving as the chair of the School of Religion for the last six of those years. In 1997 he was selected by the students and faculty of PUC as the Educator of the Year.
In addition to his degree from Southern, he has studied at Andrews University and Union Theological Seminary in Virginia, where he earned his doctorate in Old Testament. He has spoken before church groups at camp meetings, weeks of prayer, and other gatherings in a variety of locations, both in the United States and abroad, including New Zealand, Brazil, and Austria. Additionally, his articles have appeared in a number of publications, such as the Adventist Review, Ministry, and Andrews University Seminary Studies. He also authored the book "Kings and Chronicles" which served as the companion volume to a Sabbath School quarterly.
Prior to teaching at PUC, he was a youth pastor in Des Moines, Iowa, an associate pastor in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and pastor of the Atlanta Metro Church in Atlanta, Georgia. He continues to enjoy ministering in the classroom setting.
His wife, Mary, is a clinical lab instructor for the School of Nursing and a staff nurse at University Health Services. They have two sons, Jonathan and Joshua. His hobbies include basketball and softball, and he has his General class amateur radio license. Another of his favorite activities is spending time with his students in a variety of settings.
His real passion in life is to see all of his students develop a living, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ so that they might experience the abundant life made possible by this connection. He will count it a real privilege to get acquainted with you.
