Biographical Sketch for Glenn Rider

Glenn began his ministry in Canada in 1978 when he embarked on a nine year teaching ministry at London Baptist Bible College and Seminary, where he taught Greek and New Testament Studies.  He joined the AGC in 1996 and has served in several churches as Senior and Transitional Pastor.  For the past 12 years he has served on the Canada East Doctrine and Credentials Commission, 8 of which he was Chair, before becoming the National Doctrine and Credentials Chair.

Glenn and Bonnie have three married children and six grandchildren.  Son Tim and his wife Jean live in Greensboro, North Carolina.  Son Scott and wife Heather (and their 3 children) are serving as the Worship and Small Group Pastor for a church in North Las Vegas.  Daughter Cheryl and husband Lee, (with their 3 children) live in Hamilton, ON where Lee is the Pastor of Worship Arts at a local church.

Glenn is humbled by the opportunity that has been granted him over these years to serve the Lord within the AGC. He is excited about the days ahead as God allows him to be an encouragement and resource for our Canada East Pastors and Churches.

I have known Glenn Rider since 1979 when I attended London Baptist Seminary. The Association has made a wise and astute choice in choosing Glenn. His Christ like character, his knowledge of scripture and this teaching gifts will benefit the Associaton immensely
