Jim Wrenn

Worship/Senior Adult Pastor

I was born and still live in Greensboro NC. Through the example and influence of a Godly mother, I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior as a child of nine. The Lord called me to ministry when I was 19 years old, and since that time had served several churches bi-vocationally as Minister of Music in the Greensboro area. After a career in retail management, in 1992, God called me here to Glen Hope as full-time Minister of Music and Senior Adults. My wife Cindy and I met in church, as she came to our little mission church as pianist. We married in 1972 and have three grown children and six grandchildren. In my spare time, I enjoy watching and participating in several  sports, watching cooking and home improvement shows on TV, and enjoy traveling when there is the opportunity.

Brent Smith

Student Pastor

I was born and raised here in Alamance County. I connected with Glen hope Baptist Church when I was a student in high school. I trusted Christ on January 31, 1999 and from that time my life has never been the same. I have had many opportunities to serve here at Glen Hope, filling in as youth director, being a Sunday school teacher, or serving as a deacon. I was ordained as our Student Pastor March 7, 2010 and it's truly been a joy serving in these areas of our church. I graduated from Liberty University with BS and AA in Religion and a minor in Biblical Studies. I met my wife Melinda here at Glen Hope, we have two children Aydan and Kristen. I enjoy spending time with family and students, playing golf, and playing and coaching basketball!
