Remembering Pastor Glen Martin

Posted by:

Journey of Faith

Dr. Glen Martin, the former Senior Pastor of Journey of Faith, went home to be with Jesus on July 8, 2021. For 23 years Glen faithfully served Journey as a gifted Bible teacher, leader, and author. He saw our congregation through an amazing season of growth and outreach.

His first sermon at Journey, previously Community Baptist Church, was on Easter Sunday, 1991. He retired in February 2014 and moved to Murrieta, CA with his wife Nancy, where he was able to rest and spend time with his family after decades of ministry.

Glen loved teaching the Bible, especially to people that didn’t know the love and grace of Jesus. Even in his final days, Glen was bringing comfort to friends and family by sharing these precious words from 2 Timothy:

“…the time for my departure is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” 
2 Timothy 4:6-8

Glen liked to use the term “graduation” when referring to followers of Jesus that had passed from this life to the next. We know he has now “graduated” to Heaven and believe that he felt a great sense of closeness with God in his final days having completed his mission here on earth.

We thank God for the tremendous impact Pastor Glen had on Journey of Faith, our community and the Kingdom. Please join us in praying for the peace and comfort of Jesus be upon his family, and all who loved and knew him.

Glen will be remembered in a private family ceremony.
The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, a gift be made to your local church.
