Elder Greg Hoenes, Ph.D. holds a Master of Arts in Religion from La Sierra University and recently completed his Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Practical Theology: Formation and Education at Claremont School of Theology. His research interests include food & spirituality; food, theology and earth stewardship; white racism and postcolonial studies; pastoral theologies; and more! Greg currently serves as Director of the West Region, Southern California Conference. The West Region is a complex of 23 churches that service the urban edge of Los Angeles in Hollywood and Culver City; the coast from Santa Monica to Santa Barbara; Burbank and the San Fernando Valley; all of Ventura County; the Santa Clarita Valley up through Frasier Park; and the high desert, all the way to Ridgecrest. He’s tasked with providing services and outreach to all in that territory who seek to worship and participate in an English language-based, culturally American, authentically Southern Californian context. Greg has served as pastor of two West Region churches: Hollywood (1997-2004) and Santa Clarita (2004-2015). His goals as Director are to continue the contextualization of ministries; the development of a culture of responsiveness; to execute the timely placement of competent and learning pastors; and to keep focused on the core of the mission of the church — to lead people into relationship with Jesus Christ, to make disciples, and to serve the larger LA area community.
Greg is married to Jill Hoenes, C.R.N.A. who works at Kaiser West Los Angeles as the Department Administrator for Anesthesia Services. They have one adult son, Brennan, who is working with the Cardiac Division of Boston Scientific. They reside here in Glendale, and have delighted in participating with so many others in supporting the arts and music programming at Glendale City Church over the past 20 or so years.
