The Glade exists to glorify God by making disciples who serve with compassion and offer real hope.

The Glade's mission is a vision for disciple-making... As we seek to make disciples (Matthew 28:19), we define a disciple at The Glade as someone who is:

  • Encountering God with gladness because His love endures forever. (Psalm 100)
  • Being equipped for the work of ministry. (Ephesians 4:11–13)
  • Engaging the mission because life is a mission trip. (Matthew 13:31–32; 28:19–20)

The Glade's mission is a process... While we want to be a church that encounters God, equips the saints, and engages the mission. We realize that spiritual transformation is a process God initiates, continues, and completes (2 Corinthians 3:18; 1 Corinthians 3:9; Romans 8:29). Therefore, we partner with God in moving people through our discipleship process.
