New Pastor Announcement

Madison Avenue Baptist Church is pleased to announce our new Senior Pastor, Dr. Greg Heisler. Greg will present his first sermon as pastor on December 3, 2017.

One of Madison Avenue's own, having been saved and called to the ministry and ordained through the ministry of Madison Avenue Baptist Church, Greg started attending Madison Avenue in 1990 and gave his life to Christ on January 20th, 1991 under the ministry of Pastor Glenn Grubb. A graduate of Maryville College, Greg also holds both a Master’s Degree and Doctor of Philosophy from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Greg has served churches in Kentucky, Florida, and North Carolina. From 2005 to 2012, he served as the Johnny Hunt Chair of Expository Preaching at Southeastern Seminary in Wake Forest. Before coming to MABC he served as the senior pastor of Mt. Vernon Baptist in Boone, NC, for the previous five years.

We are excited to have Greg lead us as a pastor-teacher in the body of Christ in order to glorify God by (1) faithfully preaching and teaching the Word of God so that sinners can be saved and Christians can grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, (2) Leading the church by casting a vision and motivating the body to fulfill its biblical mandate, the Great Commission, and (3) Shepherding the church through wise counsel, prayer, discipleship, and life on life engagement.

Greg is married to his high school sweetheart, Laura. They were married at Madison Avenue on January 9th, 1993. Laura loves to sew and quilt, and serve in the ladies and nursery ministries of the church. They have two sons: Andrew, who is 19, and a sophomore at Belmont University in Nashville majoring in Performance Guitar, and Ben, who is 18, works at Chick-fil-A, and attends Southeastern College online.

Join us in welcoming Greg, Laura, Andrew, and Ben to the MABC family.
