Gregory (Greg) Helman
I was born and raised in Waynesboro, PA. Sports have been a big part of my life. I’ve played a variety of sports through the years as well as coached and umpired softball. Coaching gives me great joy as I get to witness and be a part of people getting better and achieving more than before. Running has been more of a personal spiritual exercise as I use it as my prayer time.
I’m a graduate of Waynesboro Area Senior High School with the class of 1977. God led me to marry Marty (Foster) Helman on June 24, 1978 and we have 3 children. Our 2 girls and son have helped us be the proud grandparents of 9 grandchildren, 6 boys and 3 girls.
After working mainly in a variety of machine shops in the area, God called me to be a pastor. So, we moved to Huntington, Indiana where I graduated from Huntington College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Bible & Religion and a Master’s Degree in Christian Ministry. Since then, we have pastored full-time at South Mountain Church in Dillsburg, PA for 15 years and we have ministered at Blue Rock Church since 2008.
Philippians 3:13-14 are verses that guide my life: Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. I’m far from perfect and yet I refuse to live in the past. With Jesus before and with me, I move forward. Pressing on and not giving up, we can enjoy life by faith in Jesus and be rewarded with eternal life.
