Brother Glenn and I serve together at Orchard Baptist Church for 5 1/2 years! It was a tremendous ministry we had together. He and I would visit hospitals, eat at the Dairy Queen, laugh and have a great time together. Brother Glenn is a man of God, loved his family and love the Lord. It was my pleasure to have him as my Minister of Music at Orchard Baptist Church, Mobile Alabama. God bless his good family. Love, Brother David and Mrs. Wanda.

I was a young person in the church choir at Green Acres Baptist church in the 1964-65 time period. Glen Jennings was the choir leader during that time. I enjoyed being in his choir, his personality and his dedication to his work. Glen Jennings was a positive Christian role model to me and many others who knew him. I am very sorry for your loss. I know your life will be different without him. I am thankful and grateful that I had the opportunity to know him and to be influenced by his example. I wanted the family to know that Glenwood Jennings is still remembered even after nearly 55 years. To God be the glory!
