Greg Abbott


This is my second participation with a church plant with the Evangelical Free Church Assoc. in Indianola. I have been a part of the leadership team since we began contemplating the idea of starting another church in Indianola. It's been a blessing to see God working through Grace. I have been married to Becky for 25 years and between us we have 5 children and 7 grandchildren. We enjoy traveling, missions ministry, hiking, playing cribbage, reading, friends and family and Iowa State sports.
