Pastor Bryndon Glass

Executive Director, Beth-El Fellowship of Visionary Churches

Bryndon Nathaniel Glass is the founder and Senior Pastor of the Shepherd’s Pasture for All Nations church (SPAN Ministries). His love for the Lord began in his youth when he was baptized at the age of eight-years-old. Throughout his adolescent years, Glass served in varies church activities at Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in Cleveland, Ohio. As a teen, Glass and his friends started a Bible study focused on accountability and advancing the Kingdom of God.

In 1995, Glass began studying criminal justice at Kent State University. It was on the campus of Kent State where the pastoral seed was planted in the young Glass. He co-founded the Voices of Testimony gospel choir and corresponding Bible study in 1996. Under the counsel of a Campus Crusade for Christ leader, Glass decided to turn the Bible study into the Impact Movement. Glass taught weekly Bible studies, which encouraged college students to commit their lives to living out the gospel of Jesus Christ. Along with the Bible study, the Voices of Testimony choir also began to grow; booking singing engagements across the state of Ohio. Glass served as a leader, mentor and discipler for a number of students involved in Voices of Testimony and Impact. Both ministries are still active organizations on Kent State’s campus today.


Glass met his wife, Yvonne, through the ministries he led as a college student. After graduating from Kent in 1999, Glass was called to ministry. With Yvonne’s full support, Glass founded the Shepherd’s Pasture for All Nations church in 2000 a few months before he and Yvonne married. He was ordained to the pastorate by Bishop Joey Johnson of The House of the Lord church in Akron, Ohio.
