Mark McClintick, Pastor
Mark grew up on a small farm in Iowa in a family that did not attend church or even discuss religion. In fact you could say he graduated from the school of hard knocks. It was after meeting Tammy and starting a family that they moved to a small town in central Iowa where God placed them right beside a pastor who not only led them to the
Lord, but is still one of Marks mentors. It was during this time that Mark began to feel the call towards ministry. He began by taking ministry classes at a satellite of Grace and found great joy in them.
He soon took a stateside missions position with Child Evangelism Fellowship as a chapter director. Through this experience and training Mark enrolled with Moody Bible Institute where he continued his education. He later transferred to ATS seminary in Camilla Georgia as they were transitioning from his current internship with First Family Church in Ankeny Iowa to his first full time position as "young lives pastor" in Mechanicsville Virginia.
Over the years Mark has served in Minnesota and North Dakota before landing in Nebraska where he served a small rural church for 8 years before coming to Saving Grace Bible Church. Tammy brings gifts of hospitality and faith to Saving Grace Bible Church as Mark serves as Pastor. They enjoy being with family, including their dogs, visiting the kids and doing things as a couple. Tammy crochets and has a craft business with their daughter Josie. She loves to read, cook and bake, in her words, “all things food”. Mark enjoys hiking, muscle cars, motorcycle riding, and do I dare say, Hawkeys?
Jeanan Glenn - Church Secretary
Jeanan was born in the Philippines where she lived with her family. While overseas, she got to travel world-wide with her family and the heart of missions was planted. When Jeanan turned 8, her family moved to Ontario Canada to her father’s home town to be raised on a potato farm and surrounded by family.
During her college years at Emmanuel Bible College, Jeanan studied biblical studies and missions. While being apart of the Evangelism Team, the group got to be a part of Operation Christmas Child and volunteer at a Processing Center.
After college, Jeanan moved to Texas to be near her grandmother while working at the World Hunger Relief Farm as an intern. However, instead of following down the mission’s path, Jeanan turned towards animal husbandry and got a job as a vet assistant for the next 5 years.
Jeanan and Kenny met at Life group in 2010 and married later that year. After spending their first year of marriage in Waco, Texas God called them to move to Wolbach NE to be closer to Kenny’s family.
Over the next 10 years, Kenny and Jeanan started Kenny Glenn Construction, found a small homestead near Belgrade to settle into, and began their collection of large dogs, abandoned kittens, and a plethora of birds. They enjoy playing board games, shooting, camping, and reading. Starting in 2017, Kenny and Jeanan got to travel to the Philippines, then a year later went to Peru. In 2020, for their 10th anniversary, they went to Colorado where they got to experience zip-lining, a helicopter ride of the Royal Gorge, and Bishop’s Castle.
They started attending Saving Grace church in late 2016 where Jeanan immediately got involved with Operation Christmas Child. In 2021, the church got to celebrate being an Operation Christmas Child Drop-Off Location for 5 years. Also in 2021, Jeanan got to share her musical talent by joining the newly formed Worship Team as a piano player, bass player, and back-up singer. Kenny and Jeanan have enjoyed finding a home church in Saving Grace Bible Church, and look forward to see it to continue to grow in the years to come.
