The Gospel of Yes
Mike Glenn has been a pastor his entire adult career. He served two churches in South Carolina before coming to Nashville in 1991. Originally from Huntsville, Alabama, He graduated from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

Since it began in 2005, attendance has grown to more than 1,200. His experience of ministering to these young adults for these past several years has redefined his ministry in many ways. He’s published two books, In Real Time: Authentic Young Adult Ministry As it Happens (2009), which tells the story of Kairos, and The Gospel of Yes (2012), helping readers discover the "yes" they're called to in life and learn to live positively in Christ—the ultimate "yes" of God. Mike says, "The power of life is in what we live for not what we live against."
