Greg joined the faculty of RTS-Orlando in 2016 and teaches courses related to New Testament exegesis and interpretation, Greek, and preaching. He is also an Associate Pastor (part-time) at River Oaks Church and is ordained in the PCA. He lives in Oviedo with his wife, Kate, who is an optometrist, and their three daughters. Before moving to Florida, the Laniers lived in Cambridge, England, where Greg finished his doctorate; while in England, they were actively involved in an evangelical Anglican church.
Prior to their overseas sojourn, Greg and his family lived in Charlotte, NC, where he attended RTS-Charlotte, served as teaching assistant to Dr. John Oliver (now retired), and served as a pastoral intern at Uptown Church PCA under Dr. Michael Kruger (campus president at RTS-Charlotte). Before discerning the Lord’s calling into pastoral and academic ministry, Greg worked in various professional roles in Charlotte, Birmingham, and Atlanta, ranging from management consulting to private equity investing.
His research interests include the Synoptic Gospels, canon and textual criticism, the use of the OT in the NT, the Pauline epistles, and the Septuagint. He also serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Biblical and Theological Studies, and he maintains a blog at http://glanier.wordpress.com.
