Pastors & Staff

James became our pastor on September 17, 2017.  Glynwood Baptist Church is very blessed to have James, his wife, Trish and son, Joshua as part of our family.
James began a relationship with Christ when he was in first grade, and he felt the Lord leading him to ministry in the fourth grade. He holds a degree in English from Georgia State University, as well as a Master of Divinity in Christian Education with an emphasis in Children’s Ministry from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.  He is currently working on his doctorate from New Orleans Theological Seminary. He likes to vacation at the beach, and his favorite snack is Pepperidge Farm Milano Salted Carmel Cookies. He is an avid coffee drinker, and he also enjoys reading, writing, juggling, and running. 


Administrative Pastor

Mike Vineyard joined our staff on August 1, 2022.  Mike works part-time as the staff person assigned to take care of our building, grounds, transportation, and he works 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. 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.
