Why I Love My Pastor #138

Two years ago, not long after a life-threatening battle with cancer, Pastor Glenn and his wife left a comfortable, "safe" position at a large congregation to lead a church plant, driven by the call to "kick a dent in history for God", as he puts it. As I have watched Pastor Glenn, I'm repeatedly struck by his humility and commitment to the cause of Christ. His faith in God's call on his life has never wavered, even in the midst of the myriad challenges of a young church.

The "official" purpose of our church is "to introduce people to the life-changing power of Jesus Christ, and to invite them and help them to become fully devoted followers", and Pastor Glenn expects us all to know those words by heart (not by head) and to live them every day. He frequently says, "We're not here to do church - we're here to worship. When we leave here and interact with the world around us, that's when we do church! The church is what we take with us into the world!" I am thrilled to be a part of this amazing adventure God is taking us on under Pastor Glenn's godly leadership. -Ruth
