Summit Life is dedicated to calling people up to a joyous, reckless, generous, and audacious life of faith by learning more about God’s extravagant love found in Christ.

In each engaging half-hour, J.D. Greear shares challenging biblical truths that inspire listeners to have daily encounters with Jesus Christ and His transformative grace.

J.D. Greear is the pastor of The Summit Church–a dynamic, muliti-campus church located in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. God has blessed The Summit Church with tremendous growth. J.D. has led the Summit to further the kingdom of God by pursuing a bold vision to plant 1,000 new churches by the year 2050. In the last ten years, the church has sent out more than 650 people to plant churches across the country and around the world. In June 2018, J.D. was elected Southern Baptist Convention president during the annual meeting in Dallas, Texas.

J.D. completed his Ph.D. in Theology at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary where he is also a faculty member, writing on the correlations between early church presentations of the gospel and Islamic theology. Having lived and served with the SBC’s International Mission Board among Muslims, he has a burden to see peoples from every nation on earth come to know and love the salvation of God in Christ.

He and his wife, Veronica, live in Raleigh and are raising four ridiculously cute kids: Kharis, Alethia, Ryah, and Adon.
