HAUGHTON, LA – Glenn Alderman's ministry can be summed up in six words, "Love God and love each other."
Glenn went home to be with the Lord on the evening of Friday, July 12, 2013. He was born on February 26, 1962, in Shreveport, LA to parents, James and Mary Alderman.
Glenn graduated as Valedictorian from Haughton High School in 1980. He attended Louisiana College and graduated in 1985 with a Bachelor Degree in Religion and minored in English. He later attended New Orleans Theological Seminary and obtained a Master Degree in Doctorial Studies in 2005.
Glenn married Robin Elizabeth Kirkley on December 17, 1983. Their love and devotion for each other and their marriage produced three children, who along with many others will miss him deeply.
Glenn's ministry spanned many years. He served as Associate Pastor of Trinity Baptist Church in LeCompt, LA from 1980-1981, Youth Director of Faith Baptist Church in Tioga, LA from 1982-1984, Pastor of Summerfield Baptist Church in Colfax, LA from 1984-1989, and Pastor of Belle Park Baptist Church of Haughton, LA from 1989 until present.
Glenn is survived by his wife, Robin Kirkley Alderman; daughter, Heather Michelle Peters and husband Matthew; son, James Benjamin Alderman; and daughter, Wendy Elizabeth Alderman, all of Haughton, LA; father and mother, James and Mary Alderman of Princeton, LA; brothers, J. Michael Alderman and wife Dianne of Houston, TX and Keith Alderman and wife Patricia of Haughton, LA; seven nephews and two nieces.
Visitation will be held on Sunday evening between the hours of 5-7 p.m. at Belle Park Baptist Church, 13061 Hwy. 157, Haughton, LA. As Glenn would have wanted it, this is not a "funeral service" but a CELEBRATION of his life! The celebration will be held at 11:00 a.m., Monday, July 15th, at Belle Park Baptist Church followed by dinner on the grounds. Please come as you are and dress casually.
