Glenn grew up on a farm in a small town in north Louisiana. He inherited a love of sports from his Dad who was a football coach at the local high school. Glenn played football, basketball, baseball and participated in track and field throughout his high school days. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Louisiana, Monroe, in 1978. At the beginning of his freshman year of college, he determined that God was calling him to the ministry. His senior year, he became the pastor of Crossroads Baptist Church, just ten miles from his home. After graduating from college, Glenn moved to the Dallas area to pursue his theological training. For three and a half years he commuted the 750 mile round trip from Dallas to his home town of Columbia, LA, to pastor his church each weekend. In 1983, he graduated from the Criswell College in Dallas with a Master’s in Biblical Studies. During that final semester, God led him to become the pastor of Brookhaven Church in Dallas, where he has now served for over thirty years. In 2013, through a series of miraculous events, God relocated the church 20 miles north from Dallas to McKinney.
