Mike Glenn        

Pastor, Brentwood Baptist & Author

Mike Glenn is the senior pastor of Brentwood Baptist Church in Brentwood, Tennessee. He is a gifted communicator with a passion to reach young adults and a unique ability to speak to any generation.

“When I was in seminary, I was told by a friend of mine that I could ‘make change.’ He told me, ‘You can take these million dollar ideas we talk about in theology and break them down into twenties and tens for everyone else to use.’ And I guess that pretty much sums up my ministry as pastor. I can understand the big ideas of theology, but I have to be able to break them down so my people can use them in the places where they live. The local church has to make the great truths of our faith work in real life. Most of my ministry has been about ‘making change.’ I think any writing I do would do the same thing— help brothers and sisters understand the good news of the Gospel in their current life setting.”

Since Mike came to Brentwood Baptist in 1991, membership has skyrocketed from 900 to more than 8,500. Mike is also the teaching pastor of Kairos, a Tuesday night worship service at Brentwood Baptist geared toward energetic young adults with a passion for growing in the Word of God. Attendance has grown to more than 1,200 in just a few short years. (More can be learned about this ministry at KairosNashville.com.)

Mike is a published author. His first book, “In Real Time: Young adult Ministry As it Happens,” tells the story of Kairos. His second book, The Gospel of Yes, will be published by WaterBrook/Multnomah in the Spring/Summer of 2012. Mike hopes as people read the book they will begin to discover the Yes they were called for in life, and learn to live positively in Christ, the ultimate Yes of God. “The power of life,” Mike points out, “is in what we live for not what we live against.” You can read more from Mike on his blog, truthfulconversations.com.

Originally from Huntsville, Alabama, Mike is a graduate of Samford University in Birmingham, and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

Mike and his wife, Jeannie, live in Franklin, Tennessee. They have two married sons.
