Gerald Glenn Church
He was the founder of the New Deliverance Evangelistic Church in Virginia, USA. Its address is 1701 Turner Rd, North Chesterfield, VA 23225, United States.
Before Glenn became sick, he preached in church about the virus in March, encouraging people not to be afraid. On March 22, 5 days after Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) had urged people to “avoid non-essential gatherings of more than 10 people,” Glenn told his congregation that he firmly believed that God is larger than this dreaded virus, according to a video played April 6 by Richmond station WTVR.
Glenn’s wife, Mother Marcietia Glenn, was also diagnosed with COVID-19, according to a YouTube post on Easter by Bryan Nevers, a church elder who also announced Glenn’s death Saturday night. All sermons were removed from the church’s YouTube channel Monday evening. The New Deliverance community was left to wrestle with his death. They are part of the Church of God in Christ, a Pentecostal denomination hit hard by COVID-19.
The April 6 WTVR report quoted Glenn’s daughter, identified as Mar-Gerie Crawley, as saying her father had been sick for about a week before he was hospitalized. She said he had diverticulitis, a digestive condition, and it wasn’t uncommon for him to get fevers and viruses. In late March, his wife took him for a 2nd time to an emergency room, Crawley said, once his breathing was laboured and he was lethargic. He was tested for the coronavirus and immediately got a positive result.
