Let me tell you a little about myself. I was born in San Francisco, California and raised in Walnut Creek, California. I am an avid San Francisco 49ers, Giants, Golden State Warriors and San Jose Sharks fan. Please feel free to send me any autographed items from any of these teams.I grew up in a non-Christian home and didn’t become a Christian until I was a senior in high school. I played football during school and was very, very good (in my own mind). Years ago, I attended Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota. It is a great school and I would highly recommend it to you. I graduated with a major in Sociology and minors in Social Work and Biblical and Theological studies (now if I could only remember everything that I studied). After graduating I started working with teenagers and have done that ever since. I have the best job in the world and that is traveling around the world speaking to teenagers and families. I have been a caseworker for emotionally disturbed and delinquent teens, Youth Pastor, Youth Specialist for Moody Bible Institute, President of Youth Ministries International, the youth and family communicator for Bethel University and a friend to endangered woodland animals (that was very random). I have led groups of teenagers on mission trips to the British Isles and all across Europe for over 20 years.¬†A few close friends and I started¬†Greg Speck Ministries as a formal way for me to continue the ministry of being a Youth and Family communicator.
