Ministry Experience: Glenn Moeckelmann
Came to Christ in my 20s (now 45 years old), studied computers and business, served a local church for 6 years before elders urged for me to consider to going into seminary and vocational ministry. Went to Dallas Theological Seminary. Upon graduation lived in a poor area for 1.5 years doing incarnational ministry managing a 50 family apartment complex as part of training for the local mission field. Have served in pastoral ministry for 12 years as an associate pastor of a large church and also part of a smaller restart church plant. In Silicon Valley started a tech start-up for online education and training founded with a team of Godly men.
Objective: To serve in a ministry utilizing my passion and gifts in both evangelizing and loving the lost while equipping teams through preaching/teaching.
PERSPECTIVE OF MINISTRY
The essence of life now and in eternity is only found in Jesus Christ. The more we understand God’s grace and the gifts of the body of Christ, the better we can minister and love His people and the lost world. We are called to make disciples of Jesus Christ. I believe the local church is the lifeline that edifies, equips and confirms the purpose of all people as they come to Christ, draw close to the Lord and obey Him.
We love building relationships and growing with others in Christ. The Lord has gifted me in preaching/teaching, leadership and evangelism, which has been confirmed many times through involvement in ministries. The body is made up of many parts all with various gifts and we need one another. My role is one little part and I am committed to doing it all in love less I am nothing and gain nothing (1 Cor 13). I also believe that co-laborers are the elders/leaders first and foremost and then the congregation that is equipped by us to do the work of the ministry. When we as elders love one another deeply then “we can do no wrong” in terms of the functional aspects of the day-to-day stuff. We can save a lot of heartache yet have honest “iron-sharpens-iron” conversations that edify and build up for the sake of Christ when true agape love binds us together. Personally, as a preacher I believe it is borderline sinful to not be passionate in preaching the Word of God. I also believe when we are focused on knowing the Author of the Bible our passion is fueled to devour what He has to say rather than trying to read and study for any other reason.
In short love the Lord and worship Him with your all, in Spirit and in truth, and love people as you point them to the throne so they may worship and serve Him fully. I believe there is the unction and “call” confirmed personally by the Spirit and in faith to the place of service. This is pretty generic but written a few years ago and just re-read it and some things may have changed but overall the principles are the same.
My father Peter is from Hamburg, Germany and mother Rose is from Manila, Philippines. They met in New York. He was sent by his company to stay several years for business and she wanted to pursue medical school. They got married had me and we immediately moved to Germany where we stayed for 12 years before moving to California in 1982. I have two sisters named Karen and Cecilia.

Came to know Christ at age 20 through a faithful servant of the Lord named Patti Chen who shared the gospel and showed me Christ’s love for an entire semester. At that time I was pursuing a professional tennis career which quickly took a turn. The same year met a U.S Delegate, named Bob Daigle who mentored me in leadership for three years in international business consulting to Fortune-500 firms. I finished a BS in Management Information Systems and worked close to ten years near the Silicon Valley, CA prior to sensing the Lord’s call to seminary and full-time ministry.

In 2006 I took a year’s worth of Church Planting training through Evangelical Free Church. For the second time in ministry life I took various assessment tests which affirmed certain personal attributes. Mainly it comes down to true calling with a healthy team.
The spiritual gifting test affirmed the areas I’m most passionate about in fulfilling my role in the Kingdom of God. These scored above 32 on the test and I don’t believe are in any significant order – Leadership, Preaching/Teaching, Evangelism, Apostleship, Discernment/Shepherding. (on the DISC test I am a D/I)
