Our team

It's takes a great team of people to make things happen at North Glencoe, and thankfully our church has been blessed with a great staff who cares about the needs of the people in our church community. Feel free at anytime to contact one of our staff members if you ever have a need.

  • Pastor Thom


    Pastor Thom grew up in the Gadsden area, and has lived in Cullman, AL and Raleigh, NC. Before going to the mission field he was a bi-vocational Pastor and IT project manager. After arriving in Central Asia, his wife Anne and children Emily, Molly, William, Lizzy and Ruthie served the people in that local community through various missions & activities designed to share the Gospel of Christ. They are now happily living in Glencoe and ready to serve the Lord here @ NGBC! You may contact him at pastorthom@northglencoe.org & be sure to check out his blog at pastorthom.blogspot.com



    Mark is a native of the Gadsden area and recently came to us at North Glencoe as Worship Pastor. He has served in multiple ministry positions in local churches for over 10 years. He works full time in a local emergency room as a physician assistant and serves in the Alabama Army National Guard. He loves singing along side his wife Bonnie on the worship team. They have two great kids, Ruth & Micah. If not at church, work or with his family, you will for SURE find him carving out some curves on his motorcycle."

  • Donna Huff


    Donna has been married to Ben for 24 years and still occasionally likes to mix things up by introducing him as her first husband. Ben refers to her as his Shorty (the name he used before it was popular in hip/hop songs.) They have three boys who have all managed to outgrow their mother by middle school. Noah, Eli, and Lucas are all saddled with Biblical names by their parents in the expectation that it might somehow influence their sinful hearts. The name experiment is in progress, results to be announced in a few years! Donna has been the Children's Minister at North Glencoe Baptist Church since 2013 and works with the best team of people ever. She has been privileged to serve God and teach children about a Savior who lovingly pursues their hearts. She loves Jesus, His Word, and the chance to tell others about Him. Donna grew up in the Pleasant Valley community and has a BA in Communications from Jacksonville State University.  You may contact Donna at donna@northglencoe.org.
