Glenn Weber could have written the definition of southern hospitality when he described his welcome to Atmore recently.

Weber will now serve Grace Fellowship Church as the executive pastor along with his family.

“We have been here for just a few weeks,” said Glenn Weber. “Everyone has been so nice to us. When we arrived, there was a group that came and helped unload all our things, and we had home cooked meals brought in for the first week.”

The Webers lived in Atmore several years ago but had been living in Reinholds, Penn., for the past seven years where he worked in the sales field.

“We prayed a long time to have a reconnect in the ministry,” Weber said. “There were just not a lot of availabilities in that area where we lived in Pennsylvania in Lancaster County. We just kept praying for God to open the doors to get us back into doing ministry work. This job here in Atmore just came right out of the blue.”

Weber was born in Pennsylvania but grew up in Sarasota, Fla. He and his family came to Atmore to work in another church, and left there to go to Pennsylvania. He and his wife, Darla, have four children, Guy, who is 21 and attending college; Morgan, 18, who just graduated and is job searching; Logan is 16 and a junior in high school. The youngest of the Weber children is Madison who just turned 13.

Weber said his job at Grace Fellowship Church will be varied. He will be involved with the inside operations of the church and also serve on preaching schedule. He said he also wants to see how he can improve some things in the church.

“I want to see the flow of the ministry and communicate with the members and the surrounding community,” he said. “Our lives have been a chain of sevens. We came to Atmore after we had been married for seven years. We stayed for seven years in Atmore and moved to Pennsylvania. We moved back here seven years later. It is strange coincident.

“We are very happy to be back in Atmore,” Weber said. “And hope, we stay for a long time.”
