First Baptist Church of Vidalia pastor Dan Glenn can easily relate to his youth and music ministers.
That's because he's
been there and done that.After former pastor Gary Nunn accepted a job as pastor at a church in Georgia last year and youth minister Jason Walsworth returned to his home church in Ruston, Glenn was the lone full-time minister on staff as minister of music.
...One of those positions would be filled by Glenn, who was named pastor at First Baptist Vidalia in February.
"It's been great having them on staff," Glenn
said."They are both called by God to do His
will.Their camaraderie, relationship and friendship has been huge.I have been able to depend on them to do things I used to do."Glenn
wife of six years, Nicki, came to Vidalia in June of 2002 when Glenn
was named Associate Pastor of Worship and Creative Ministries."This church actually took a chance on me because I had no classroom training in the music ministry," said the 31-year-old Glenn, who graduated from Mississippi State in 1996 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication.
The Clinton, Miss., native graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
in 2001 with a Master of Divinity degree. "I think God had a plan to bring me here as Minister of Music to be more effective as a pastor," Glenn
"Trey has been extremely effective with the kids and they are excited about what's going on," Glenn
"Joshua is a very spiritual person whose youth does not serve as a hinderance," Glenn
...Roberts grew up singing in Ferriday First Baptist Church with his parents, Glenn and Brenda Roberts of Vidalia.
