GlenHaven is made up of all kinds of people from different backgrounds: men and women, young and old, families and individuals. People come from a variety of contexts and vocations. You will quickly discover that our congregation is Christ-centered and Bible-based. Nothing is more important to us than growing deeper in our relationship with Jesus. We are a family of faith passionately dedicated to creating great relationships and seeing lives transformed by the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ! We want you to make yourself at home at GlenHaven. Feel free to ask questions and build friendships. Our hope is that you will meet God in this place!

GlenHaven is a "re-plant" of St. Luke Joy Presbyterian Church. Being a "re-plant" means we are an existing congregation that has taken on the mentality of a church plant. We desire to be faithful to God's call in our lives by renewing our mission in our community.

At GlenHaven you will find a rich diversity of people grounded in God's word and Holy Spirit power.
