“The greatest thing my parents taught me was that Love is a commitment. They’ve been married for nearly 60 years!” — Greg Williams
Greg Williams is passionate about delivering the biblical standards concerning marriage, family, and purity to a generation that has forgotten them. His message is timely, challenging and encouraging. Adults and students alike benefit from sitting under Greg’s teaching. His foundational message centers on the Lordship of Christ, encouraging discipleship beyond marriage, family, and purity into all areas of Christian life.

He and his wife, Ami, co-hosted Marriage Unleashed, a guest talk show focused on healthy marriage and marriages on WTVQ Channel 36 (Lexington, KY, ABC affiliate).
Greg started IP315 Ministries (now Love and Lordship) as a result of churches, couples and individuals seeking a deeper relationship with Christ and a desire to see the effects of this priority relationship on every part of their personal lives, relationships, marriage and family, as well as the Church and culture. Greg has shared this message with tens of thousands of individuals and couples over the past 20+ years and as a result has authored a new book, The Authority of Love.
The Authority of Love has been selected by Sisters for Life (and Marriage for Life) as their curriculum for discipleship and relationship training with staff, volunteers and those they minister to as they rescue moms, babies and fathers off the streets in Louisville and as they expand to LA, Dallas, Cincinnati, Indianapolis and beyond.
The Love and Lordship Events present a solid Biblical approach to relationships, sexuality, marriage and family and the impact we are called to have in and through Christ’s Church. Greg has spoken at numerous marriage conferences/events in Kentucky and across the US as well as the keynote presenter at the International Marriage and Family Conference in Cameroon, West Africa.
