Glen grew up in South Carolina and became a Christian at a young age. Church was an important part of his life growing up, and as a junior in high school he sensed God calling him to pastoral ministry.
While a student at Clemson University, he was involved with the student leadership team of Campus Crusade for Christ and later spent a few years on staff with Cru at the University of Kentucky. That’s where he met his wife Shaele.
After earning a Master of Divinity at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in 1999, Glen served as an associate pastor in Kentucky and North Carolina and a senior pastor in the Kansas City area.
Along the way, Glen also earned a Doctor of Ministry in Spiritual Formation from Gordon Conwell and has received additional training from the Soul Care Institute at the Potter’s Inn in Colorado. His passion is the help people to grow in their love for God and in their love for each other. Others say he is “down to earth” and not afraid to walk with people through difficult circumstances. He likes to think of himself as “the guy you’re supposed to interrupt,” so don’t be afraid to reach out to Glen and share your story.
Glen and Shaele have been married since 1996. Shaele is a teacher and works with fifth graders at Southport Presbyterian School. They have three children: Anna Katherine (2000), Wilson and Benjamin (2002).
