The Rev. Glenn “Mac” Frazier was ordained as a minister of the New Church in 2006, and raised to the degree of pastor in 2008. He has served as an Assistant to the Pastor in Pittsburgh and in Bryn Athyn, and as visiting minister to Erie, North Ohio, Charlotte, and Chapel Hill. He has also served as consulting pastor for Pulse (the General Church’s revamped young adult program), and has been an ongoing contributor to Office of Outreach efforts, including writing for New Church Connection magazine and assisting with the development and associated training for spiritual growth campaigns. He has also served as a clergy representative on a couple of General Church board committees and teams.

Before answering the call to the priesthood, he was an executive at the web business development company he co-founded in 1995. Refinery grew to be an industry leader by the time of its sale in 2007. Mac’s principle role in the company was the building and leading of the consultant group within the company that advised clients on new projects. During this time, he not only had experience running a startup, but consulted on the plans of numerous other startup ventures funded by major corporations.

Mac retired from active involvement in the company in 2003 to take a little time off before entering theological school. During this hiatus he authored an opinion and current events blog that was cited numerous times in the online edition of the Wall Street Journal.

Mac married Gillian Leeper from Atlanta, GA in 1995. Together they have four children, ages four to twelve.
