Who We Are

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.

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.

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.

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!

Our Pastors

Pastors Melvin & Ashley Cross 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 Launch Outreach ministries, which is the umbrella organization for Manna Girls Home. Pastor Ashley is a graduate of Oral Roberts University as well.

In addition to pastoring Glory House International together they have two daughters and a host of spiritual sons and daughters that they disciple. They are also both in the process of earning the doctorate degrees.
