Person in Ministry – Lori Gleason

Volunteers are the heartbeat of our ministry at The People Church | First Baptist Moriarty. We believe that scripture teaches that every member of the church is a minister of God. We also believe it is important for us to appreciate those that work so hard and dedicate so much to our church and the Kingdom of God.

Each month we will highlight a different “Person in Ministry” to allow you to get to know others in the church and maybe learn about ministries that you may be unfamiliar with.

Name:
Lori Gleason

Spouse’s name:
Brian

Children and Grandchildren:
Brandon, Brianna, Austin and Ashley        

How long have you been at The People Church | First Baptist Moriarty? 
7 years

Where is your sweet spot in Ministry (where your passions and gifting intersect)? Serving people through food

What are your passions in life?
I pray that God will help me to be a better wife, mother, daughter and friend, and to help me be the best that I can be in order to minister to others.

What are your challenges (being too busy, not a morning person, eating too much chocolate, etc)? I’m not a night person and interacting with others that are is often challenging. Another challenge in my life is to encourage my children to be positive thinkers.

Tell us a little about your ministry:
Because everyone likes food, being able to provide this service and meet and talk to people is not only a ministry to them, but also to me.

How has God changed your life since beginning this ministry or since attending The People Church | First Baptist Moriarty?
This ministry has helped me to be more hospitable and to become more aware of the needs of other around me.
