Orlando, FL

Thrive Church




Greg Marksberry

Imagine an area bursting with opportunity and growth, attractive to families of diverse backgrounds, and expected to triple in population over the next 10 years. That city exists in the southeast corner of Orlando – Lake Nona, Florida.

Lake Nona is growing rapidly and has emerged as a strategic location only in recent years. There is a very real need for new churches in the community. Greg Marksberry will lead a new church in Lake Nona.

Greg was the lead planter for Heritage Christian Church in Peachtree, GA and recently served as senior pastor at First Christian Church in Burlington, KY.

Greg was led to Christ by his grandparents, who gave him a foundation of faith and a legacy of God’s love and redemptive power. Greg was called into ministry during high school and attended college at Cincinnati Christian University and Seminary where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies and Christian Ministry. Greg and his wife Eliana met while attending CCU. They were married in 1988 and have three children.
