About Gregg Strawbridge (Director)
We are devastated to share of the passing of WordMp3 Creative Director and Founder, Reverend Dr. W. Gregg Strawbridge.
Pastor Gregg, as he was known by many, was a beloved pastor, mentor, friend, son, brother, husband, father, and grandfather. Throughout his life, Gregg’s faith and ministry developed through the lens of Reformed theology for which he will be remembered through his many books, sermons, publications, and audio online ministry, Wordmp3.
Gregg loved learning and teaching, and was a gifted listener and communicator. His zest for life was unmatched. Those close to him will remember his love of music, cooking for his congregants, and laughing, playing music, sailing, fishing, and spending time with his wife and daughters.
His gentle love and care for others was known by everyone he met, as well as his love for Scripture, passion for the kingdom of God, and faith in Jesus Christ. He was a revered and beloved leader among pastors, and teacher of students in pastoral training. His is a loss that will be felt by many communities in the Lancaster County area, and across the country.
In his honor our featured talks this week feature Dr. Strawbridge, including some of his best-loved sermons and debates, a song that he couldn't sing without tearing up in worship, a funeral exhortation he gave that you may find encouraging, a recent series on Postmillienal Eschatology, and the last sermon he preached (about baptism, of course). Take some time to check out the 1,156 items in his whole catalog.
