MEET OUR STAFF
Hello, my name is Glynn and I am the Lead Pastor at Grace Covenant Church.
I have lived in the Kannapolis area most of my life. I came to Christ at an early age in the very church I now serve. My personal goals led me to attend East Carolina University where I earned a degree in accounting; however God had different plans for me. Upon graduating I received God’s call into pastoral ministry. In the summer of 1994 I accepted the position of staff pastor at our church. In the fall of that same year I enrolled in Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary where I completed a Master of Divinity. I served as Associate Pastor for 15 years and was installed as our lead pastor in September 2016.
Our heart at Grace Covenant is to lead people into a growing relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We believe God has good plans for all of us. We would love to join with you and help see those plans fulfilled.
My wife Catrina and I have been married for 22 years. We live in China Grove and have three beautiful children: Alexandria 17, Olivia 15, and Grayson 5. We find great joy in our children and spend every moment we can with them.
In addition to spending time with my family, I enjoy cooking, gardening and hunting. I also enjoy good music. I have a hard time doing anything without something playing in the background.
I am honored to serve God and His people at Grace Covenant Church.
Hi, my name is Glynn (yes, we have the same name) and I am the Associate Pastor at Grace Covenant Church. My wife Barbara and I were appointed to Grace Covenant Church in 1978.
I was raised in the home of a Church of God pastor, however I did not fully commit my life to Christ until my last year of college. I transitioned into pastoral ministry from a business career where I practiced as a CPA and owned and operated various businesses. Initially I served as an assisting minister to our founding Pastors Guy and Eva Brafford. In 1988 I was appointed as our Lead Pastor. I served as lead pastor for 28 years. I recently transitioned into the role of Associate Pastor.
Barbara and I have two children, Mary-Margaret (husband Reese) and Glynn III (wife Catrina), and enjoy our five granddaughters and one grandson. I am an avid NFL fan and try not to miss a game if possible. My favorite team is who ever is winning that year!
It's my priviledge to serve God and His church at Grace Covenant.
