  • elder Glenn Davis

    Glenn have been attending Grace Bible for 19 years since coming to Columbia. His wife (Kathy) and him were attracted by the solid biblical teaching and the warm fellowship they enjoyed. Shortly after their arrival here they completed a long adoption process that brought them their daughter, Janna, and their son Benjamin two years later.
