Greg Howard is the Senior pastor and founder of The Cross Church. He loves the ocean, beach volleyball and golf, sometimes drives an old jag (He inherited it from his dad!), is a photographer, loudly cheers for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and once won a free trip to Costa Rica in a “closest to the pin” competition.
Greg’s story is a long one of God’s grace and mercy. He became a real Jesus follower while working as a professional Fashion model in Paris and New York. After working in the fashion industry for 15 years, Greg got called into ministry and worked for 15 years at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale before venturing out in faith with a small, but amazing team of people to plant The Cross Church in 2014. He is married to his beautiful wife Gaby and the two of them want to reach people with the grace, love and hope of Jesus.
Heather is the administrator for The Cross Church. She is the glue that holds it all together! She loves training hard, has an amazing laugh, loves green drinks, cheers for the Packers (CheeseHead!), and loves hanging with her hubby, Ryan. Heather and Ryan were a part of the team that planted the Cross back in 2014.
Alex is our Worship leader at The Cross. We were super excited that God led Alex to sell his business and move down here from Wisconsin. No, Alex didn't move to sunny Florida just to lead our worship team (Ryan and Heather are family), but we are still the ones who get blessed every week! Alex's passion for worship started early. He began playing guitar in 6th grade and led worship at school, church, and various teams throughout his college years. Alex loves coffee, all sports, and the Packers (yes, another Packer's fan/ CheeseHead!).
