Fran Riley Feature: Tae Kwon Do Pastors

Updated:

It's all in the approach. Forty-year-old Greg Ehler and his wife, Holly are black belts in Tae Kwon Do.

The Ehlers are also ordained ministers with the Salvation Army. They are assigned to the Heritage Temple in Moline after arriving in the Quad Cities in June.

Greg was in the Army for twelve years. His wife has a nursing background.

Greg can relate to being down and out. He is a recovering alcoholic and drug addict. He says God has placed him in a position to help other people who have experienced that same pain.

Holly says being gifted in the martial arts is a way to show people that pastors are not just tied to the pulpit. They are real people and here to help build others up.

Holly Ehler believes that courtesy, integrity, and self- control are an important part of the martial arts and in living life in a way to honor God.

The couple believes that when God encourages people to do something, they do not have a choice.
