Pastor Charles Glover was born on June 26, 1956 at Frenchburg, Kentucky to William and Nova Elaine (Charles) Glover. He lived the first four years of his life in Morehead, Kentucky then the family moved to Defiance, Ohio where Charles lived until he was 18. He spent a short stint in the Navy and then went to Mount Carmel High School, Vancleve, Kentucky to finish his senior year. He was wonderfully saved and called to preach that year (’75-’76) and went on to Kentucky Mountain Bible Institute (now College) at Vancleve, KY. While a student at KMBC, Charles was glorious sanctified, filled with Holy Spirit and in his Senior Year (1979) called to pastor in the Mountains of Eastern Kentucky where he has been ever since, laboring among the people he dearly loves. God used Isaiah 41:15 to whisper His will to his heart!
Isaiah 41:15 (KJV) “Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff.”
Since June 28, 1980 he has been happily married to Joni Lynn (Nelson) Glover and God has blessed their union with four children: Lydia Renee Stovall, Kara Lynn Huff, Susan Marie Glover and Paul David Glover. They also enjoy their beautiful four grandsons and one very beautiful granddaughter: Isaiah, Caleb & Hannah Stovall and Gideon & Carson Huff.
Pastor Charles is a bi-vocational pastor, working full-time at the Campton Post Office. Working 40 hours a week plus pastoring puts a great demand on his time, but he truly delights himself in begin in the will of God! To God be the Glory, great things He hath done!
Sister Joni Lynn (Nelson) Glover was born July 17 in Marion, Indiana to Jerry and Janet (Atkins) Nelson. She lived on a farm and was blessed to attend a good country church in Indiana. Having a tender heart, she was saved when a youth and sanctified while a student at KMBI.
“But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all they works.” Ps. 73:28.
