Biography: Bishop Barbara Glanton

".....Many are called but few are chosen".

                                                                     - Matthew 22:14


Pastor Barbara Glanton accepted Jesus Chirst into her heart on October 15, 1984.  About two years later she said YES to the call of God and started the Young Disciples Ministries on March 25, 1986. The Young Disciples Ministries is centered on teaching young people the principals of God to become an asset to society. She was later ordained a Pastor in December 1991, by her pastor. Pastor Jason Alvarez.


Pastor Jason Alvarez was led by the spirit of God and asked her to pray about pasturing a church in Newark,NJ. To God be the Glory, on April 11, 1999, she accepted what is essentially a thankless job, holding no reward but the opportunity to serve, as the Pastor of the Love of Jesus Family Church of Newark.


Pastor Barbara owns the corner of Boylan Street & Abinger to Sunset Ave. She plans to build a community center under the Young Disciples Community Development Corporation that will be constructed into a recreational facility with various programs that will benefit the youth and members of the community. She has also purchased a four family house that will being transformed into a four family rental property and later into a transitional home for teenage mothers.


On Sunday, June 30, 2013 Pastor Barbara Glanton was ordained to a Bishop.  


As God excels her to another level in life to continue to love, serve, and be obedient. Bishop Barbara Glanton's labor of love for people allows her to reach out into the community and win souls for the kingdom of God.
