The combined business competencies and ministerial experiences have resulted in developing the unique ministry he is now providing under the Life Focus Center outreach.

Both Glen's ministry and professional career has been focused on helping people succeed in life. He has dedicated himself to finding ways to support people of all levels of life that may be in some life junctions or may need his life experience to help them through their issues. He and his wife Debbie believe that a successful ministry is one that is servitude to those they minister to. Making friends and establishing relationships has been a major theme of both of their lives.

With twenty years experience as an Organization Development professional, working with major corporations, Glen provides expertise in developing organizations so they can meet the challenges facing all businesses today, which is to achieve growth and financial prosperity.

The sum of this experience is used to make the Life Focus Center a model organization that demonstrates integrity in doing business, established on sound personal relationships and provide learning opportunities for people seeking to find more meaning in their lives.

In addition, Glen has traveled internationally teaching and supporting organizations, school, and churches assisting them in maturing in both the Word of God and in business proficiency.
