OUR Founding Pastors

  • Pastor Glen & Barb Landis

    Founding Pastor

    Pastor Glen Landis, along with his wife, Barbara, have faithfully provided Pastoral leadership at New Life Church  in Canton, Pennsylvania since it began in 1975, celebrating 40 years of service in November of 2015.   Barb has a love for music and is the director of the Women's Ministries.  Both Pastor Glen and Barb are passionate about  God, their family, loving people, giving and serving missions (both internationally and here in their own backyard), and their New Life Church family. Pastor Glen and his brother, Arlen, Associate Pastor, founded and led the church through a location change and two building programs--one in 1990 and one in 2004--which were prompted by the needs of a growing congregation. Pastor Glen and Barbara have two daughters, two sons, and sixteen grandchildren. Though they are  moving into new areas of ministry, both hold a special place in the hearts and the body at New Life Church.
