For Pastor Glenn, the call of God for ministry came as a bit of a surprise. As graduate of San Diego State with a major in Recreation Administration, Glenn wanted to be a park ranger. But God had other plans. After graduation, he married his amazing wife Cindy and they are the proud parents of two sons and three adorable grandchildren. Glenn has been in ministry since 1981 serving as a youth director to three different churches. He is a graduate of Regent College in Vancouver B.C. (1992). After serving as youth director here at SYVPC since 2004, he was ordained into ECO in 2014 and into the position of Associate Pastor. He says, "Cindy and I are so blessed to be serving here. We have had the privilege to lead groups to Italy, Greece and Germany where we saw the Passion in Oberammergau. We have had the joy of touring the Holy Land, and now this year to Scotland. These have deepened our spiritual roots and our love for the Lord." In his spare time, you will most likely find him at the beach surfing, strumming on his guitar, or on the golf course.
