Lean on Caring Facilitators

We have experienced divorce ourselves and have a heart for those who are hurting.

DivorceCare was life changing for me. At first I was hesitant to go, but quickly found myself looking forward to each meeting. When life as I knew it was turned upside down, the DivorceCare leaders were there to meet me right where I was in the process. The Christ-centered curriculum offers relevant topics and guidance on the path to hope and healing.

Divorce Care helped me realize that what I was feeling and experiencing was completely normal. It gave me a safe environment to explore the turmoil created by the divorce process. I appreciated the practical strategies offered for coping, in a biblical manner, with the various issues that arise from divorce i.e. finances, children, loneliness, forgiveness. . . Of particular benefit to me are the friendships that developed from this wonderful ministry.

Divorce Care Facilitators

Glenn and Diane have both experienced divorce, single parenting and blended family living. They began their blended family in 1988 each bringing a young daughter to the marriage. Their family grew in the early 1990’s with the addition of two sons. Glenn accepted Christ as his savior through EP Church’s ministry to the divorced in 1987. Diane experienced healing in her home church in Michigan through a support group for the divorced. Having been called to comfort others with the comfort they received, Glenn and Diane have been active in EP’s ministry since 1988 to those experiencing marital separation and divorce (2 Cor. 1:3-4).

Dan is a native of the Annapolis area, and came to faith in Christ as a high school student right here at EP. A graduate of Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida, he oversees our ministries that provide care and support to people going through seasons of struggle and transition, helping them regain spiritual and emotional health to re-engage in our mission—seeking the renewal of Annapolis. Dan and his wife, Sandy, have three grown children and reside in Millersville.
