Glenn McDonald's Bio:
Glenn McDonald is senior pastor of Zionsville Presbyterian Church (ZPC) in suburban Indianapolis, a congregation he helped organize in 1983. The church has grown from about two dozen adults to more than 2,000 members, and is notable for its small groups, ministry teams and highly decentralized style of ministry, which prioritizes lay leadership. ZPC was recently identified as one of America’s 300 Excellent Protestant Churches in a study funded by the Lilly Endowment.

Glenn and his wife Mary Sue are Indianapolis natives and are parents of three sons (25, 19, and 16), and a daughter (22). Glenn is an avid spelunker, movie buff, and amateur astronomer. He holds a degree in molecular biology from Purdue University and received his Mastery of Divinity from Trinity International Seminary in Deerfield, Illinois.

Glenn has been a consultant for a number of governing bodies and congregations in the Presbyterian Church (USA) and other mainline denominations, and was part of the national teaching team for Evangelism Connections '98. He is the author of The Disciple Making Church: From Dry Bones to Spiritual Vitality (2004) and co-authored Imagining a Church in the Spirit with Ben Campbell Johnson (1999).
