Glenn Armstrong

associate pastor of education & Administration 

Glenn came to Shirley Hills Baptist Church in November 2006, from Woodland Acres Baptist Church in Tulsa, OK. He retired from the Navy after 28 years and moved to Tulsa to teach at a university. That was when God revealed He has an active sense of humor. He called Glenn into the ministry.

Glenn retired from the Navy because it had stopped being fun. He did not want to manage budgets, write instructions, and deal with personnel issues any longer. So what are his primary duties in the church: manage budgets, write instructions, and deal with personnel issues. The difference is he loves doing those tasks in the church. He considers himself to be blessed among men because he has had two careers, and he has loved both of them.

Glenn married his high school sweetheart (Patricia) before entering the Navy. They have three grown daughters and four grandchildren; who are spread all over the U.S. Glenn and Pat are both passionate about teaching the Bible and helping people understand the Gospel message.

Glenn has degrees from Huntingdon College (B.S.); University of West Florida (M.S.); and Penn State University (Ph.D.). He is a certified Church Business Administrator by the National Association of Church Business Administrators.
