The Reverend Glenn Knepp is originally from Plymouth, Indiana. It was there in Marshall County, where he was raised. He grew up on the family farm where he learned, from an early age, the value of hard work and gained an appreciation for the beauty and bounty of the land. Glenn and his family attended the Shiloh Wesleyan Church during those formative years and his family still remain members of that congregation. Glenn eventually attended Purdue University where he was a major in Agriculture Economics. While at Purdue, he began attending the Wesley Foundation at Purdue, a United Methodist Campus Ministry. During his time at the Wesley Foundation he received a call to ministry and also met and married Amy Knepp.
Amy is originally from West Lafayette, Indiana. She was confirmed a member of the United Methodist Church at West Lafayette First UMC. She also began her undergraduate at Purdue University. When she and Glenn were married they transferred to Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana where they completed their undergraduate degrees in Children’s Ministry and Christian Ministry respectively. While completing their degrees they both served on the staff of the Nelson Street Wesleyan Church in Marion, Indiana.
In January of 2008 Glenn was appointed to serve as the pastor of the New Waverly United Methodist Church. 3 ½ Years later he was re-appointed by the Bishop of the Indiana Area of the United Methodist Church to serve the Reynolds United Methodist Church, where he served for nearly 5 years.
Glenn has a passion for theological and philosophical discussion. He takes special interest in the theology of Karl Barth and how this theology might impact and intersect the theology of the Wesleyan Tradition and speak to congregations in the United Methodist Church. Glenn also finds great joy in helping congregations discern the vision of the local church and move into this God given hope and calling.
Glenn and Amy have four children and a beautiful faithful dog. They enjoy spending time together as a family and taking new adventures together, especially in the outdoors.
“And He said unto me, ‘My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.’ Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9
