Glory House International is a church that exists to teach people to live in purpose and fulfill destiny. Our passion is to provide an atmosphere where people like you can have a life changing experience with God.

At Glory House International, our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey. What people usually notice about first about us is the warm, life-giving, welcoming atmosphere.

Our goal is to infuse purpose, destiny and God’s love into people and families through an unforgettable worship experience that offer and demonstrate biblical truth in a relevant yet power way.

But it won’t take you long to discover that we’re more than just a Sunday church. We enjoy doing life together and we are a growing network of connect groups. And if you’d like to develop authentic and enduring relationships with others, you’ll be glad to know there are opportunities to join a group all the time.

Together, we’re striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible, where there’s relevant teaching, authentic worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, and compassionate care for those in need. In short, we’d like to have the kind of Christianity that influences entire cities, one life at a time.

So, whether you’re just starting to ask questions about God, or a committed Christian who wants to deepen your faith even more, you can find a home here at Glory House International! We invite you to worship with us this Sunday!






Winter groups start the week of January 1st and the semester ends the week of February 26th.

At Glory House International we believe life change happens in the context of relationships, no one should do life alone! Belong groups are the place to connect with other people of similar interests and life situations.

Belong groups are an opportunity to be in a community while growing in your walk with the Lord. Groups can meet either once a week or every other week in homes, businesses, restaurants, or at the church. Belong groups are here to have you connected, prayed for, and growing in Christ!




Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identity with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things; you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family. We host special baptism events and will start baptizing



S.O.W. children’s ministry (Seeds of Worship)


Every Sunday all children (babies through 5th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environment where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. We are so passionate about kids learning about Jesus in a way they can understand that we do not allow them into the service designed for adults and students (6th grade and older)

We would love to see you and your family visit S.O.W. at Glory House International this Sunday. Join the fun and experience a world where kids meet Jesus on their level.




As many people enter into a new-found relationship with Christ, please know that it couldn’t happen without your generosity. We are truly grateful for your donation.

Financial giving can be divided into two categories: tithes and offerings. The Bible teaches us that we worship the Lord with our tithe, which is ten percent of our income contributed to the church on a regular basis. When we feel called to give over and above our tithe, we do so as an offering.

It’s simple and secure. Whether you’d like to give a single gift, or schedule ongoing donations, you can do it all online, using your checking account, debit, or credit card.

LOVE Rochester is an outreach event that celebrates the anniversary of Glory House International. It is an amazing opportunity to go out into our communities and show the love of Christ in real and tangible ways. We encourage everyone to get involved and be the hands and feet of Jesus on LOVE Rochester.





One of our core values at Glory House International is that we are spirit-led, so prayer is a constant for us. We pray collectively as a church on a weekly basis and on a larger scale in January and August through Prayer Power: 21 days of Prayer.   These two months are intentional, as they begin new seasons of the year. Together, we faithfully seek God first, trusting His power alone to create lasting impact in our lives, our church and our world




Pastors Melvin and Ashley are the bold, encouraging, life-giving leaders of Glory House International. Since it began in 2014, Glory House International has grown to a community of people known for its exciting and inviting culture and focus on leading entire families and individuals to a place of purpose and destiny.

As the son of two pastors, Pastor Mel comes from a ministry background while Pastor Ashley comes from a human services background. In spite of their vastly different backgrounds they share this same passion- to see people discover their God given destiny, and they have given their lives to help others find fulfillment in Jesus.

Between the two of them, they have over 25 years of ministry experience. Prior to pastoring Glory House International, Pastor Mel served as a youth, young adult, and associate pastor. He graduated with his bachelors degree in Public Communications/ Sociology and received his Masters of Divinity from Oral Roberts University. Pastor Ashley founded and runs Launch Outreach ministries, which is the umbrella organization for Manna Girls Home. Pastor Ashley is a graduate of Oral Roberts University as well. They are both in the process of earning the doctorate degrees.
