Gregg Farrell

Senior Pastor – All Campuses

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pa and moved south in 1983 and I have been a thankful resident of the south ever since. After living in Florida for 12 years, my wife, 2 daughters and I moved to Bowling Green, Ky in 1995. Kentucky is now and forever my home. I am married to Tammi and have 2 daughters and 3 grand-children. I was blessed to be raised in the Catholic church but in my journey to seek the Lord I was led by God into the protestant faith and the Baptist denomination. I will forever be grateful to my Catholic heritage and forever passionate about new life in Christ. I graduated from Bethel University with a B.S. in Organizational Management and earned my masters degree in Biblical Theology from the University of the Cumberlands. I absolutely love ‘THE’ church and I absolutely love THIS church. The hope of the world is Jesus Christ and His church promotes that hope! I believe the Bible is the powerful, infallible, inerrant and inspired communication of God. It is the sole source of my teaching and contains the only explanation for life, meaning and the existence of all things. One fact guides my entire life and ministry, Jesus Christ raised himself from the dead. Now that is awesome!

Joel Hawkins

Pastor of Staff and Ministries – All Campuses

Born and raised in Louisville, KY, I’ve been around BG my whole life.  My grandparents lived here and owned their own upholstery shop in town for years.   Coming home to BG after about 22 years away has been amazing. I love what I do at Crossland because everyday I get to be a part of something creative. My role on the team is to bring all the pieces together each week to help create an environment where everyone is free to worship and open to the word God has for us. Administratively, I get to oversee all the ministries at Crossland and support all our staff. My role allows me to oversee the website and marketing and allows we to be in on the planning of worship and events. I’ve done a little of everything over the years from worship leading, youth ministry, adult bible study, children’s ministry and worship/creative arts. I’ve been doing ministry since college starting with Young Life. It’s been a wonderful journey over the last 30 years to see how God has developed my gifts and talents. It’s pretty cool to look back over the road to Crossland to see all the turns He brought us through to prepare us for ministry here. Jackie, my wife and I, and our son Jackson call Bowling Green home. We wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
