Promised Land Baptist Church

   Our Pastor

Promised Land Baptist Church welcomes back Gregg Birkholz as Pastor!

Pastor Birkholz pastored the church from 1992 – 2009, and the church has just recently voted to have him return as Pastor. We are encouraged by this new chapter in our church’s ministry!

Pastor Birkholz grew up (not far away) in the town of South Egremont, Massachusetts. He and his family have been residents of Canaan since 1995. He has been married to his wife, Corinne for 38 years.

Their daughter, Deanna Porcher and her family (Joel, Joel IV, Nathanael, and Adalyn) serve the Lord on the mission field of Ghana, West Africa.

Their son, Christopher and his family (Beth, Charlotte, and Clara) serve the Lord on the mission field of Honduras.

Emily is about to complete her senior year of high school (A Beka Home School) and will be attending Crown College in Powell, TN in the fall.

Hannah is about to complete her sophomore year of high school (A Beka Home School).

For those who remember Pastor Birkholz from the past (or for those who have yet to meet him and his family), we encourage you to visit our church and get acquainted! A sincerely warm welcome awaits you! Pastor Birkholz and his family would love to be a blessing to you!


“I am very excited about the privilege and opportunity to serve the Lord at Promised Land Baptist Church! It would be a blessing to have you come pay us a visit! Here you will find some great folks who love and serve a great God! Please come by some Sunday morning and introduce yourself. We would love to get to know you and share with you the precious truths of God’s Word, the Bible! It would be an honor to have you as our guest in one of our services!”
