Up Front Ministries is a 501 (c) (3) Christian ministry that is multi-faceted in scope, including biblical mentoring, discipleship, financial consulting, pastoral counseling, music outreach, career placement & entrepreneurial projects in the marketplace.
The ministry is under the oversight of Pastor Greg Haage, who is an Ordained minister, Author, Marriage counselor, Christian recording artist and accomplished professional musician with 26 years of studio, sound engineering, radio production and live performance experience. After years of nightclub and studio tent making, Greg went into ministry in 1995.

Jonathan is the Small Groups Pastor at Five Oaks Community Church in Woodbury. His wife, Stephanie, is was an Elementary Education Teacher but is now a stay at home Mom. They are the proud parents of their two sons, Jeremiah and Joshua, along with their daughter, Sara.
Piper is an Office Manager and is married to husband, Matt Kosel. They have a daughter, Paisley and sister coming.
Pastor Greg has over 20+ years of experience in mentoring people of all ages. He addresses the most commonâ€”yet often-times not talked aboutâ€”issues like financial goals & budgeting, the role of sex, intimacy and candid, open communication in marriage, as well as, the need for sound doctrine that is so lacking in today's church. His promotion of the Gospel with truth, freedom, and joy, along with other ministers being raised up, brings a fresh voice and wind of change to ministry.
This includes the completion of a 15 year Bible Study and now published book, "The Real Deal" (Following Jesus 101) *See library page.
