Greg MacKinnon

Pastor, Author, Mentor


Greg, a lifelong resident of Durban, South Africa, is happily married to Laurie, and together they are raising three daughters: Kirsten, Katie, and Leeya.

Greg earned his B. Com LL. B degrees with honors at the University of Natal, Durban, and was officially recognized as an attorney in 1996. For several years, he practiced law at a prestigious firm in Durban, specializing in commercial law and general civil litigation.

As he likes to tell people, “The amazing love of God even extends to lawyers!” Greg experienced a transformative moment in 2004 when he felt a calling from God to become a pastor. Responding to this divine guidance, he expanded his theological knowledge by earning a Master of Arts in Vocational Practice from Tabor Victoria (now Eastern College Australia).

Currently based in Amanzimtoti, Southern Durban, Greg holds the esteemed position of Lead Elder and Pastor at Kingsway Church International. In addition to his pastoral duties, Greg is also an accomplished author. He released his debut novel, “Closure,” in December 2018, followed by his debut non-fiction book, “Can,” in December 2020.


Greg has written one Fiction and 1 Non-Fiction Book.


A Novel

Just as Daniel Abrahams is about to embark on an overseas adventure, he is arrested at the airport. A package containing heroin has been found in his bag. Daniel has no idea how the package got there. Erin Matthews, a former public prosecutor, is building her career in a prestigious Durban law firm when she is asked to defend Daniel. Desperate
to leave criminal law behind her, she very reluctantly agrees to take his case. As Erin gets to know Daniel’s family and his Church, she will discover that there is far more at stake than the freedom of an innocent young man.

Can: Faith in the God Who Turns “Can’t” into “Can”

A Non-Fiction Book

We’d all much rather avoid them, wouldn’t we? But there are giants to battle, walls to overcome and storms to navigate in this life. When we take stock of our own abilities and resources, we are often left feeling that we can’t do it.
But even when the odds are overwhelmingly against us, we can look to the God who turns our “can’t” into “can”.
In “Can”, we will look at Old Testament accounts of God turning “can’t” into “can”. Stories of a great champion, a great wall and a great army. We will look at stories of Jesus’s miracles in the Gospel accounts. Greg will share personal stories and testimonies too. Along the way, we will explore some simple – yet absolutely vital – principles of faith; principles which we so easily neglect or forget in the midst of our storms and battles. Greg wrote this book during the Covid-19 pandemic with one primary goal in mind: to encourage and to strengthen your faith in the Lord who can do all things – the God who can turn your “can’t” into “can”
