Glenn Garvin: Hopebroker
Glenn previously served as the Associate Pastor at Life Center, Lakewood for eighteen years. He served as an Assistant Pastor at Canyon Hills in Bakersfield for two years before moving to Lakewood, California and serving at Life Center in 1984.
At Life Center, Glenn served as Christian Education director, Youth Pastor for two years and eventually, Associate Pastor managing facilities and information systems. In this role, he regularly taught and preached. He also served as College & Single’s Pastor for nine years.
In 1988 Glenn and his wife Robin, established the second Royal Family Kids’ Camp, following the model already established by Wayne and Diane Tesch in Costa Mesa, California, to host abused and neglected children. Glenn continued to direct the Life Center camp until 1999 when he “passed the scepter” (a term used by Royal Family to designate the transfer of leadership) to someone within Life Center. Glenn was the first Royal Family Kids’ Camp Director to earn the “10 year Director’s Award” for leading one camp for ten years. He has been a speaker and representative for RFKC for the past several years. His passion for children at risk comes from his own dysfunctional upbringing and his desire to see God break the cycle of abuse in today’s generation of children.
Glenn joined the national office staff of Royal Family Kids’ Camps, Inc. in January 2003. Glenn speaks nationwide, enlisting champions for children to reach out to children of abuse in their local community. As Vice President of Camps, he is commissioned to extend the national goal of seeing every foster child, age 6-12, experience a life changing camp, club and mentor.
Glenn and his wife, Robin, have been married for thirty two years and have three children, David (28), Matthew (26) and Janae (23) and reside in Santa Ana, California. Glenn is a graduate of Vanguard University (formerly Southern California College) with a degree in Biblical Studies and a Master’s degree in Leadership.
