On episode fourteen of season two, I sit down with Glenn Packiam! We discuss what it looks like to pastor a sacramental charismatic church, the role of formation in Christian worship, and how the sacramental tapestry helped provide stability for New Life after their previous senior pastor had a more failure and church scandal. Glenn Packiam is an Associate Senior Pastor at New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and the lead pastor of New Life Downtown. The author of multiple books, Glenn earned a Doctorate in Theology and Ministry from Durham University in the UK. He also holds BA in Theological/Historical Studies and Masters in Management from Oral Roberts University, and a Graduate Certificate in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary. He is a Visiting Fellow at St. John’s College at Durham University, and an adjunct professor at Denver Seminary. He is also an ordained priest with the Anglican Church of North America (ACNA).
