Welcoming a New Elder

We welcome Jack Glubrecht to the NWH Elder Team!

Jack and his wife, Mel (Melanie), have attended our church since 1981. Jack has been on staff at NWH in various capacities--paid and volunteer--for many years. He has also served on the Love INC Board for fourteen years and as President of the Board from 2012-2018.

Jack has a Bachelor's degree in Christian Education from Western Baptist College (now Corban University).

Growing up in a Christian home and being discipled and trained by other Christian men have been significant blessings in Jack's life. He credits learning the meaning and importance of "church family" to the care shown by the NWH body after he broke his neck in a boating accident (while leading a middle school retreat) in 1982.  

Jack says that he is "humbled to be serving as an elder ... and trusts in God alone to supply the strength and wisdom to do so." The essence of Jack's walk with Jesus can be found in 2 Corinthians 12:9: "He has said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you for power is perfected in weakness.' Mostly gladly therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me."
