Up Front Ministries is a 501 (c) (3) Christian ministry that is multi-faceted in scope, including biblical mentoring, discipleship, financial consulting, pastoral counseling, music outreach, career placement & entrepreneurial projects in the marketplace.
The ministry is under the oversight of Pastor Greg Haage, who is an Ordained minister, Author, Marriage counselor, Christian recording artist and accomplished professional musician with 26 years of studio, sound engineering, radio production and live performance experience. After years of nightclub and studio tent making, Greg went into ministry in 1995.
Denise is a retired Level-4, Sign Language Interpreter. Now proud "Nana." She exemplifies a Proverbs 31 woman.

Piper is an Office Manager plus a licensed MN Realtor and is married to husband, Matt Kosel, a State Farm rep. They have 2 daughters: Paisley and Molly and their son just arrived: Zachary :)
Greg has over 20+ years of experience in mentoring people of all ages. He addresses the most common yet often-times not talked about issues like financial goals & budgeting, the role of sex, intimacy and candid, open communication in marriage, as well as, the need for sound doctrine and freedom from legalism that is so lacking in today's church. His promotion of the Gospel with truth, freedom, and joy, along with other ministers being raised up, is a fresh voice and wind of change to ministry.
He has a published book, "The Real Deal" (Following Jesus 101) *See library page.
Greg is also a Licensed Real Estate Broker (MN. License # 40112115) and approaches that business like George Bailey in "It's a Wonderful Life" by finding people their "dream home."
He also works with family's & young adult budgets, career placement, housing issues & credit dynamics. Greg helps with budget consulting, the dangers of debt overload and keeping the lines of communication open.
His former music business background (pre-ministry) included producing, live performing & Special Events.
