Welcome to our little corner of the internet, where life’s journey is shared, faith is deepened, and purpose is discovered through the lens of our story—Greg and Darlene’s story. It’s not just any tale; it’s a narrative of love, resilience, and unwavering faith.

👫 Meet the Team: Greg & Darlene United in love since 1972, we’re the duo behind Jesus Leadership Training. Our hearts have been entwined through decades, blessed with three wonderful daughters—Christina, Kelly, and April—and further joy has bloomed with six grandchildren: Lilly, Daisey, Corben, Indy, Elsie, and Pergrin.

🌱 Our Mission Jesus Leadership Training isn’t just about us; it’s a mission born from trial and triumph, dedicated to providing researched resources for truth-seekers. We’re all about nurturing spiritual growth through education, engagement, and exploration of the Scriptures.

🙏 Greg’s Testimony Life took a sharp turn in 2014 when, at 62, I faced a stroke and a stage 4 rectal cancer diagnosis. Initially, I considered declining treatment, content with the blessings of my life. However, inspired by family, faith, and my fantastic doctor, Dr. Hussein at OSU Cancer Hospital, I chose to embrace whatever path lay ahead, surrendering to God’s will.

🛤 The Road to Recovery My journey has been marked by challenges and victories, from various forms of chemo and surgeries to the incredible support of my wife and family. Now, 8 years later, I stand not just a survivor, but a beacon of hope for over 513,110 people who’ve interacted with our blog—a testament to the impact one can have, surpassing even my previous mission work and preaching.

📚 Our Approach to Learning At Jesus Leadership Training, we believe in a tailored educational experience, understanding that each individual absorbs knowledge differently. Whether through reading, watching, or listening, we guide seekers to the biblical answers they crave, employing comprehensive research tools from respected Bible translations and scholarly resources.

🛠 Tools for Growth Our aim is simple yet profound: to make Bible study fun, inspiring, and deeply personal. We provide the tools for you to delve into the Scriptures, build a relationship with God, and gain a deeper understanding of His word.

🌍 Experience and Service Our service extends far beyond this platform. With over 40 years of leading missionary teams, establishing congregations in Guyana, and authoring “Beware Lest You Entertain Angels Unaware,” we’ve dedicated our lives to spreading the Good News.

🎉 Celebrating Love This year marked our 50th wedding anniversary, a milestone that speaks volumes of love, partnership, and faith. We celebrated this golden era with the same devotion that has steered our lives—toward each other, our family, and God’s calling.

💒 Teaching and Training Our combined experiences from the Central Ohio School for Preachers and Teachers, the International School of Evangelism, and numerous mission trips, frame the essence of Jesus Leadership Training. It’s more than just an educational platform; it’s a culmination of lifelong service and teaching.

We invite you to join us on this journey of faith and learning. Our story is ongoing, and we’re thrilled to share it with you. We hope to inspire, guide, and encourage you through every word and resource available on our platform.

Thank you for visiting us. We’re here not just to lead but to walk alongside you in your spiritual adventure.

Feel free to reach out, browse through our resources, or simply soak in the love and wisdom that we aim to impart through Jesus Leadership Training.

May your hearts be as full as ours, and your journey be as blessed.

God Bless, Greg & Darlene

Jesus Leadership Training is bringing Researched Resources to Truth Seekers

Personally – Greg


In 2014, I was 62, that November I had a Stroke and then entered maybe 6 months of Rehab, But as zi was Recovering, I found out that I had stage 4 Rectal Cancer also.

My First Reaction was, I have led a great life, a wonderful wife, great children, and Grand Children. I am Just going to refuse treatment and move on to heaven. I Told that to Darlene and My Doctors, they were all wonderful very challenging times.

Somewhere over the Next Few Months, My thoughts changed, maybe there was still more to do in the Kingdom. So I came to the Understanding it was better for me just to Surrender to God’s will. If It was his will for me to leave, or stay I would leave it to him. Once I surrendered I became very, I guess Pliable is how you might explain it.

My wife has been wonderful, and I had a doctor from Pakistan, Dr. Hussein, at OSU Cancer Hospital. He was great and truthful. I had about an 11% chance that things would go well.

I Guess If I could Pass on any advice – Learning to surrender – Helps us through difficult times.
