Greg and Di Ann Perkins became Lead Pastors at First Family Church in February of 2015. Before arriving at Lake of the Ozarks, the Perkins’ spent nearly 25 years in church ministry as lead pastors in Marshfield, MO, and Derby, KS—and most recently, as Executive Pastor at Eastside Community Church in Wichita, KS.
Greg also spent 6 years actively ministering in the Marketplace as a corporate sales representative for two Fortune 500 companies. Ministry to the community (both business and civic) has been a priority in each position of leadership, serving 23+ years in local Rotary Clubs, as well as 8+ years as a chaplain with police departments in Derby and Andover, Kansas. He currently serves as Director of Chaplains for the Osage Beach Police Department.
Di Ann was raised in Hannibal, Missouri and attended North Central Bible College (now University) where she met Greg. In addition to ministering along side her husband, being a homemaker, and raising two active boys, she has also worked outside the home as an executive secretary in real estate, banking, Christian higher education, and international missions.
Di Ann is passionate about helping and encouraging women to grow and develop both spiritually and professionally. She is an active intercessor and has led numerous studies on the subject of spiritual warfare, prayer, and intercession.
The Perkins’ have two sons: Brad (29) who serves as Senior Strategist for RedSeam Creative in Dallas, TX and Alex (23) who is completing his degree in Tuba Performance at Kansas State University in Manhattan, KS this fall.
Greg is the author of a devotional book called “Moments of Destiny” and now writes a weekly devotional blog by the same name (www.MomentsOfDestiny.com). He is currently working on a series of book projects to be released next year.
