Greg Trueblood, Lead Pastor

"I LOVE my Church!" - Pastor G.

Pastor Greg has served as Lead Pastor of West Des Moines Open Bible Church since August 1, 1996.

West Des Moines Open Bible Church was founded in 1934, and pastor Greg is currently the longest serving pastor in our church’s rich history.

Pastor Greg graduated with his BA from Open Bible College in 1981.  (At this time it was still located in Des Moines, IA but later moved to Eugene, OR)

He has served as youth pastor in Illinois, Nebraska, Michigan and Iowa. He also served as lead pastor of Faith Fellowship in Vermilion, South Dakota for 7 years.

He was led by God to lead, equip and disciple our church family at West Des Moines Open Bible; leading the church under God’s Covering and Grace through life’s journey, believing that we were not created to “do life” alone.  Being a firm believer that everyone needs a second chance in life led him to add: “Church of the Second Chance” to our church name.  

Pastor Greg is very pleased to be able to pastor a great group of Christian families and people, and he welcomes you to join us!
