Anyone who has visited Sixth & Izard church of Christ and filled out a card in the last few years has probably talked to Glenn Dingler, our deacon in charge of visitation.Although there were no specialized work areas when Glenn became a deacon here at least twenty years ago, he has always been active in visitation, whether organized or not, wherever he and his wife, Jessie, have been members.So it was only natural for our elders to assign him to this work when they decided to give each deacon an area suited to his talent back in 1998.
Years ago, Glenn said, he would just walk up to a recent visitor's house and ring the doorbell (being a natural-born door-Dingler).But now people don't really welcome unexpected visits, especially from people they don't know; so Glenn makes his first contact with a visitor by telephone to ask if he can supply more information about our congregation.He will encourage the person to talk about his or her own interests and occupation; then, if the person indicates a willingness to have a personal visit, Glenn will try to find one of our members with similar interests to make that visit.He feels that it's very important for us "to try to be the friendliest congregation in town" since most people have to pass a lot of other congregations to get to Sixth and Izard.
Glenn was born on March 28, 1930, in Pine Valley, Oklahoma, where his father worked in the logging industry.In 1932 the family moved to a farm near Kirby in southwest Arkansas.Glenn eventually gained two younger brothers and a sister, who all helped raise corn, cotton, peanuts, and anything else that could be sold.After a while his father went back into logging near Kirby and eventually worked for the Arkansas Highway Department.
Glenn graduated from High School in 1948 and came to Little Rock to attend Draughn's Business School; then he worked in the meter department at Arkansas Power and Light Company (now Entergy) until he was drafted into the Army in 1951.After basic training he spent the rest of his required two years as a corporal at the Army's administrative headquarters in Baltimore.
He came back to Little Rock in 1953 and worked as a reservations agent for American Airlines.In 1954 he met Jessie Gilbert, who had moved here from Nashville, Arkansas, to work in a furniture store.At that time Glenn was not a member of any church.His mother, a Missionary Baptist, had taken him to church when she could, but that was not very often since their farm was out in the country and they had to walk to town to worship.Jessie was a member at Sixth and Izard, and Glenn started attending services with her.They were married on November 4, 1955, and Cleon Lyles baptized Glenn in 1956.
Glenn and Jessie have three married sons: Robert lives in Memphis; Michael (who has given them a granddaughter) lives in Benton; and Steven lives in Little Rock.
Glenn had left American Airlines in 1954 when a pilots' strike resulted in a lay-off of the newest employees.He went to ArkLa Gas Company (Now Reliant Energy) in November 1954, where he stayed for 38 years, taking promotions that required him to move to Ada, Oklahoma, and then to Oklahoma City.In 1974 he returned to Little Rock as purchasing manager of Arkla's Arkansas Division; in 1985 he was promoted to manager of purchasing and warehousing for all three of the company's divisions--Arkansas, Louisiana/Texas, and Oklahoma/Kansas.He took early retirement in 1992.
Glenn is all for the plans now being made to move our congregation to the Crystal Hill area.He thinks it will give us a good opportunity to grow, as well as help the congregations who are considering moving to our present location, which is closer to many of their members than their current buildings.With the experience Glenn has in management, he should be able to handle a boom in the visitation ministry.
The various ministries of the Windsong church have been organized under 5 categories of service, each one containing ministries of similar purpose.Our deacons have been given responsibility over these ministry areas.Click on any of the ministries below for a brief description of the ministry area and the deacons associated with them.
