Brentwood Baptist Senior Pastor Resigns to Focus on Church Planting

The senior pastor of Tennessee's Brentwood Baptist Church is resigning from the Nashville megachurch to focus on church planting.

"Thirty-two years — by any standard — is an amazing run, and I'm grateful for every minute. But the time has come for someone else to lead BBC into the future that I'm convinced God has for our church," Mike Glenn wrote in a letter to his congregation announcing his resignation.

Glenn said he will be working on church planting.

"I need to spend more time working with pastors, church planters, and leaders in Middle Tennessee," he said. "I want to work with churches to plant new churches and re-purpose churches in changing communities. The most fun I have right now is working with our campus pastors. I want to do more of this."

According to CBN News, Glenn will step down from the role at the end of the year. He said trustees are working to find a new pastor.

"I'm committed to working with our trustees to ensure an orderly and Spirit-led transition," he said.

"In the meantime, we'll walk through 2023 together and enter the future excited to see where God is leading me, our team, and our church," he added.

In January 2024, Glenn will assume the role of executive director of the Engaged Church Network (ECN), "a family of gospel-centered churches, serving together to reach their communities for Jesus Christ."

"There's a future ahead for us that God is opening up now," Glenn said. "And I can't wait to get to it."

"No one loves you more than I do," he told the congregation. "And I can't wait to see what God is going to unfold for us in the months and years ahead."

Glenn has served as the pastor of the Brentwood Baptist Church since 1991. The church has more than 11,000 people across eight campuses in Tennessee.

Glenn has served on several Southern Baptist Convention boards, including the Tennessee Baptist Convention's Executive Board, the Belmont University Board of Trustees and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Board.

"We are grateful that Mike will take on a new role centered around guiding and developing the Engage Church Network," Brentwood Baptists trustees said in a statement. "He is a valuable resource for our church and will continue to offer his wisdom, experience, and vision. One thing has been clear in our work surrounding this transition, Mike loves you and our church, and there is much work God is calling us to do," the letter continued.
