Meet Our Worship Leader...

Greg Harpine
Modern Worship Leader

Greetings Church Family - I am very honored and excited to introduce myself to you although I have seen so many familiar faces already. My name is Greg Harpine and I am your new Modern Worship Leader at Culpeper United Methodist Church.

I am a lifetime resident of Culpeper.  For 42 of the 50 years that I have lived here, I have been an active member of Culpeper Presbyterian Church. During my time there I was heavily involved in their music department including choir, bells, quartet, and development and leading our praise team as well as our Sunday evening Praise and Worship Service. I served on our worship committee and also taught youth and adult Sunday school classes.

I am a private music teacher at White Dove Studios, a local business I have owned and
operated since 2007. In 2010 I left a 20 year career in local law-enforcement to teach music full time. I am also the Executive Director of a non-profit called Souls In Harmony which offers therapeutic music programs for those suffering Alzheimer’s dementia, as well as other cognitive disorders including strokes. COVID has impacted our ability to provide these
services, but are anxious to get volunteers back to work as circumstances allow.
I am the father of two adult daughters (Caylie 20) and (Ashton 22). I am in a relationship with an amazing woman, Melissa Dean, who brings 3 boys to the family (Wyatt 23), (Liam 21),
and (Luke 4).

We are so thankful for the opportunity to integrate into this church family and to move into our next chapter with you here at CUMC.
