The Author

Transitional Gospel is the work of Dr. Gregory Hall, who is first and foremost a husband (to my first wife… and high-school sweetheart) and father (to two “twenty-something” young men). I’m the Pastor of Discipleship at Salem First Church of the Nazarene in Salem, OR and an adjunct Bible professor (George Fox University,  Corban University, and Reach Training Institute).

My C.V. info is available here.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Education from Pacific Lutheran University (Tacoma, WA), Master of Arts in Theological Studies from Faith Seminary (Tacoma, WA), and Doctor of Ministry (DMin) in Biblical Preaching and Teaching from Knox Theological Seminary (Ft. Lauderdale, FL).


Tour group on the Southern steps of the temple mount in Jerusalem (2008).

I’ve been a college athlete, public school teacher, real estate broker, board president, small business entrepreneur, and a licensed minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

I’ve also had the privilege of taking several tour groups to Israel & Jordan. For those who have been, you understand how a trip like that radically changes the way one reads and understands Scripture. Those trips, and the training I’ve had in the Greek and Hebrew languages, have really opened my eyes to the theological “man behind the curtain”.


Tour group at the Western Wall in Jerusalem (2017).

I teach whenever I can and I write when I find time. I’m excited to share somewhat unique thoughts about the liminal ministry of the incarnate Christ.
