Meet Our Pastor

 

 Pastor Eugene Greer, III received Christ in 1975 at Greater Bethlehem Baptist Church.  Pastor Greer, one of six children born to Mary & Eugene Greer, Jr., was destined to become a preacher of the gospel one day.  Pastor Greer is a great father to his three children, Chastity, Eugene IV and Kristian and he is the proud grandfather of granddaughter Natalie and grandsons Zachary and Daniel.

 

Our Pastor is, by far, one of the most kind and giving persons you will ever meet.  As Jeremiah 1:5 says: “Before you were born I knew you and have ordained you to speak to nations.”  When you hear our pastor you will know that he is anointed and called by God, at such a time as this. 

 

Romans 10:14(c) asks: “How shall they hear without a preacher?” Our pastor brings forth the word of God in such a way that when you hear the word you will be encouraged.  He has a way of reaching you, regardless of where you are in life.  His messages are inspired by God and stir the spirit of all that come.  Isaiah 55:6 says: “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near.” 

 

Our pastor is both a shepherd and a servant.  He cares enough to minister and pray for his sheep anytime; 11 p.m. or 4 a.m., it’s never too late or too early.  His heart is for the people of God.  Our pastor is passionate about the things of God.  Our pastor teaches the importance of building a relationship with God.  He believes that prayer and studying God’s word are a necessity for every believer and the transforming power of worship is the foundation to enter into the presence of God.  He believes that “A Change is Not a Change Until It’s Changed.” 

 

Church History:

Temple of Deliverance was birthed on Highway 55 as our founder and his wife were coming home from Memphis, TN.   As our leader answered the call of God on his life, he organized Temple of Deliverance in July of 2000 in his home with three other adults.  Temple began worshiping at the Northside 7th Day Adventist Church on Lucas & Hunt Road where, on their very first service, over 175 people attended.

 

Temple of Deliverance moved from the 7th Day Adventist Church to a storefront at 7045 West Florissant until they outgrew that location.  In January 2009, the Lord blessed Temple of Deliverance with a beautiful edifice at 215 Shepley where they are quickly becoming a church that makes a difference in the community.
