Gregory A. Shumake is a native of California. Raised in Oakland, he began in music early on in life and started playing piano at age 15. One major turning point for him happened in 1980 while attending Castlemont High School there in Oakland. Performing in concerts with the school Jazz Band, Concert Band, and choir "The Castleers," Greg gained exposure to the "power of the stage". But it was in 1984 in Riverside CA where Greg surrendered to the "Power of the Spirit of God."
Always aspiring to be as excellent as possible in his music, Greg began holding solo concerts in churches located in Southern California. It was his desire to be known as a recording artist and he felt he had stepped into his role fully. But God had other plans.
In 1989, he noticed that the music coming through him was changing to worship services more and more. And in 1991, he launched headlong into the worship and praise format of music. He still preached, played, and sang, but the focus was more on the presence of God than the his own talent.
In September of that year, he and his family relocated to Colorado Springs with his employer at the time. While there, Greg continued to pursue the music and began to travel beyond the local Colorado boundaries to minister. God would open doors and Greg would walk through. In 1997, Greg became the worship leader for Grace Fellowship Church, now known as Church For All Nations in Colorado. While there for 3 1/2 years, God began to stir in the hearts of Greg and Brenda about the next step toward destiny and purpose. After much prayer and Godly counsel, Greg and his family relocated to Nashville, TN and served the ministry of the Oasis Church, pastored by singer/songwriter/evangelist Danny Chambers. Greg was as keyboard player for the church as well as accompanist for Pastor Danny when he traveled and ministered. Currently, Greg and his family reside in Jacksonville, FL and serves as co-laborer and partner with Wilbur Ministries with Messianic world renown worship leader, Paul Wilbur.
As a singer, songwriter, and conference speaker, and worship leader, his passion is to see the nations healed and delivered in every area, spirit, soul, and body. His desire is to see all people released to love and worship the Lord in spirit and in truth, seeking the face of God more than His hand. Greg is married to Brenda and they have two children Mia and David.
