Pastor Glenn Shields
Glenn R. Shields currently serves as the senior Pastor of Progressive Community Church (PCC) in Stockton, California. He considers it an honor to pastor God’s people in such challenging times. His focus of ministry involves connecting personally with God’s people while teaching them God’s word as they are encouraged to live out their faith on a daily basis.
Under Pastor Shields’ leadership, in 2008 PCC completed a new 40,000 square foot facility that includes a 1600 seat sanctuary on 13 ½ acres in South Stockton. His vision for the church to become more than a Sunday place of worship has come to fruition. Local community events, political meetings, Christian concerts and other inter-denominational activities have been welcomed into PCC. The church staff works diligently to provide a loving and professional environment to foster fellowship, dialogue and community involvement.
Pastor Shields has a wealth of ministerial experiences that include the development and implementation of various ministries; he’s a sought after conference and retreat speaker; counselor for men, women and families; served as a California State Prison Chaplain; additionally he has been privileged to share the gospel message through preaching and teaching across the United States and abroad. He currently leads a staff of 20 employees that serve the PCC 1700+ membership.
Pastor Shields holds a Masters of Pastoral Leadership from Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena California, and a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies from Trinity Bible College, Sacramento, California.
Pastor Shields has been blessed to “do life” with his life partner and wife, Yvette of 32 years. They are the proud parents of five adult children and are enjoying the season of being empty nesters.
