Mike became our Associate Pastor/Minister of Music on October 10, 1999. One of Mike's main ministries is Family Care. If anyone is in the hospital or homebound Mike Denning is going to visit, write letters, or make phone calls to check up on them.
Mike surrendered to the call as an adult stepping down as the owner of a profitable business to go to Florida Baptist Theological College. His family is very important to him. He has three adult daughters (Amanda, Rachel & Michelle) and three wonderful son-in-laws. He has six beautiful granddaughters. Mike loves hunting, fishing, camping and eating ice cream with his wife, Deirdre.
Mike Vineyard is the newest member of the Glynwood Baptist Church Staff. He began on Monday, August 1, 2022. Mike will be the staff person assigned to take care of our building, grounds, transportation, and he will work closely with our Church Treasurer and Financial Ministry Assistant to manage employee benefits.
Mike recently felt a call on is life to go into the ministry and retired from the Prattville Police Department to pursue that call. He will now be pursuing ordination to the Gospel Ministry over the next year. Mike along with his wife Erin and adult daughter Emily have been members at Glynwood for 8 years and look forward to being able to serve in the church that they call home.
