Together with his brother, Gregg has been running Hamann Companies, a local commercial construction and real estate company, for nearly three decades. At the same time, Gregg felt a strong call to preach and use his gifts in the church. He has been preaching at Covenant since 1993. Gregg is fascinated with God's creation and the natural world. He has been a long time collector of seashells and palm trees, a scuba diver, and back country hiker.
