Our Church History

History of Glory of the Lord Family Ministries

Glory of The Lord Family Ministries was founded in 1988 by Pastors Cliff and Millie Close. The work was born out of a deep desire to see the Body of Christ arise to the fullness of Christ (Ephesians 4:12).

Established to be a training center to release and encourage each individual to become all they were created to be, as well as walk out the very purposes of God into all the earth, and that we would see God’s Kingdom fully come on earth as it is in Heaven. (Revelation 11:15).

Glory of the Lord is currently led by Apostle Barbara Becker and Pastor’s Tom and Deb Ruland and Pastors Mark and Lorri Honstein


Glory of the Lord Family Ministries is a Christ centered, full Gospel, Bible believing, Non-Denominational, Ministry with a heart for the hurting and broken. We are a people with the desire to walk out the fullness of the word of God in our own lives and in doing so, affecting, and making a living difference in the lives of those around us. Our focus is to be and do all that the Lord has created us to be.

As an Apostolic center, we desire to raise up and support an apostolic-prophetic leadership company with a Kingdom Mindset, releasing a move of the Spirit of God into not only the Cities and States around us, but the but to every Nation, tongue, and tribe according to Mark 16:15. He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all creation.

We warmly invite you to join us as we expectantly come together to embrace the life changing GOOD NEWS of GODs WORD.
