Featured Missionary: Greg and Danni Upperman

May 03, 2015 at 10:41 AM

Each week, FBCK features a missionary family to learn about and pray for. This week's missionary family is Greg and Danni Upperman of Starkville, Mississippi.

Greg Upperman grew up in Benton, Arkansas. After high school, he planned to pursue a career in microbiology. It was during his years in college that he began to sense that God had a different plan for him. At the age of 25, he surrendered his life to the call to full-time ministry. He then served in youth ministry at Kentucky MBC (Benton, AR) for two years, as pastor of Oak Grove MBC (Rison AR) for seven years, and as pastor of Calvary Baptist Church (Jonesboro, AR) for two years.

In 2010, Sharon Baptist Church in Benton called Greg to be their missionary in Starkville, a college town in east-central Mississippi (home to Mississippi State University). A previous mission work there had failed, and Sharon BC wanted the Uppermans to re-launch the church plant. With a name change to CornerStone Baptist Church, the new work was off and running. It thrives today, as the Upperman family seeks to serve God and plant churches in Starkville.
