Our ministry is unique as it combines Scripture, Catholic teaching, prayer, and music. Linda and I believe God’s Word can heal people’s hearts and bring them alive in faith. Our parish missions include such topics as Catholic identity, mercy, mountain-moving faith, agape love, forgiveness, community, discipleship, and commitment.
We invite people to a greater personal reform and holiness of life which will then lead to a strengthening of marriages, families, Church and society.
A Catholic parish is a haven where flesh is put to the word of God. A place where people can bring their joys and burdens while finding an environment of hope, love, and acceptance.
Through grace-filled evangelization efforts, Glenn Harmon Ministries will foster an experience of conversion and renewal in the heart which will lead to a more active living of Catholic life.

Q: How long have you been doing parish missions/renewals?
My wife Linda and I have been in full-time ministry since 1992. We have traveled the United States and Canada giving over 550 Catholic parish missions, renewals, as well as retreats, conferences, seminars, and workshops. By faith, we are following a special and unique call of God to share the love of Jesus Christ and the blessings of our Catholic Church. Our message of unconditional love, hope, forgiveness, and faith is for all people in all places.
Q: What do you charge to give a parish mission/renewal?
We decided nearly 30 years ago that we would never charge a stipend or a fee to give a parish renewal. We simply take a love offering from those in attendance on the final night to support our ministry. We are a ministry of faith trusting in the Lord through His people to meet our needs.
Q: Are there any additional expenses to the parish?
Since our ministry operates completely on donations and love offerings, we ask the parish to pay our transportation expenses, rental car if necessary, as well as meals and lodging.
Q: What did you do before starting Glenn Harmon Ministries?
Before entering full-time ministry, I was Vice President of a major corporation. I also spent eight years as Director of the Office of Evangelization for the Diocese of Lake Charles, Louisiana. I was the former Chairman of the Louisiana State Evangelization Council and the host of the Catholic television program “Exploring the Issues."
Q: Are you a Catholic Deacon?
I completed my Diaconate studies in 2001 and also received my certification in Pastoral Studies from Loyola University in New Orleans. I have ordained a Permanent Deacon on December 1, 2001. I am currently a Deacon in good standing in the Diocese of San Bernardino, CA.
Q: What is your parish mission/renewal messages like?
I will answer that question by quoting a Pastor from a recent mission. "Deacon Glenn's style is not preachy. He shares appropriately his own journey of faith in such a way that he is able to touch the hearts of many. There is a simplicity and genuineness in his witness that makes it appealing, encouraging and challenging".
Q: How long have you been married?
Linda and I have been married for 51 years and we have 2 daughters, 4 grandchildren, and 2 great-granddaughters.
What a wonderful mission we had at Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Aliso Viejo California. We had been there seven years ago and returned to do our latest mission called “New Beginnings Back To Basics” Father Tim sent out beautiful postcards to all registered members of the Parish inviting them to attend and we had a great turn out.
It was evident that there was a beautiful and strong movement of the Holy Spirit during the mission and we were all blessed by God. Thank you so much to Fr. Tim, the Staff & the friendly community that made us feel so welcomed and so blessed.
Please God continue to heal and bless your children in this faith community.
