Rev. Gordon Tubbs aka “Rev G” has been the youth pastor at First Pres since 2020. He earned his B.S. in Organizational Leadership and Management as well as his M.Div. in Chaplain Ministry from Regent University (Virginia Beach, VA). Although this is his first call as an ordained minister, Gordon brings years of volunteer experience from his home church in Norfolk, VA in addition to the grit he picked up while serving in the US Navy as a submariner (active duty 2004-2009, reserves 2012-2018).
Even though Gordon grew up as a Navy brat and lived in many places, he was raised (right) as a Southerner by a Tar Heel father and Gamecock mom. He spent many summers in Columbia and Montreat visiting grandparents and finds that living in Greenwood is a beautiful combination of the two. He lives in the Broken Ridge neighborhood with his wife Brett and two sons John and Daniel.
Gordon enjoys breaking into random characters complete with accent and back story, baking Detroit-style pizza, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, binging the latest Marvel and Star Wars content, and recording music. More importantly, he is passionate about bringing youth in the Kingdom of God.
