Meet Glenn Sauls

President / Founder, SCS

Dr. Glenn Sauls spent twenty-two years leading two local churches and for nearly 15 years has brought that pastoral experience, along with his consulting and leadership experience, to serve over 200 churches from various denominations and organizations across America to raise nearly $1 billion. Glenn’s leadership strength has been described by Senior Pastor Steve Robinson as “understanding the pastoral track (the role of the senior leader) in the stewardship process. He understands how to best leverage the skills and time of the lead pastor in a capital stewardship campaign. Glenn’s coaching ability, discernment, leadership gifts, and strategic thinking has personally kept me focused on what really matters.”

Dr. Sauls is a communicator and in addition to pastoring and preaching in some of the leading churches across America, he also taught college for six years. He was the chairman of the Professional Studies Division of a private Christian college. Dr. Sauls has a Bachelor of Science Degree, a Masters of Education Degree, a Doctor of Education Degree, and a Ph.D. in Business Leadership.

After serving as a pastor in North Carolina and South Carolina, Dr. Sauls joined John Maxwell’s organization, Injoy Stewardship Services, as Vice President / Senior Consultant. He worked with over 70 churches from various denominations across America. In 2007, Dr. Sauls left to form Sauls Consulting Services as a result of the belief that churches across America needed and desired a strategic, yet personalized, consultation service with a solutions-based approach to the need of leadership and stewardship in the local church.

Dr. Sauls is sought out by numerous churches and ministry organizations for speaking engagements across America and around the world. His missions work has taken him to Russia, Philippines, Canada, Mexico, China, and Tibet. Through his ministry, he has planted and helped build churches all across the Caribbean and the Philippines. “Glenn Sauls is such a gift to the Body of Christ.,” says Bishop Claude Alexander, Senior Pastor of The Park Ministries in Charlotte, NC.

In 2012, Dr. Sauls’ first book came out to the church community and has been used and read by congregations in over one hundred churches across America. The book entitled, Journey: Where Are You Going Today? is also accompanied by a devotional guide and small groups lessons. There also is a series of six messages based on the book that are available to churches and pastors. He has also written articles that have appeared in Ministries Today, Outreach Magazine and Bank of the West Quarterly Newsletters.

Jeff Little, Senior Pastor of Milestone Church in Keller, TX says, “Glenn understands the local church, particularly taking extensive time to discover and understand our unique culture and diversity at Milestone Church, and is driven by passion and creativity in linking local churches to their God-given destiny.” Others have described Glenn as “a leader, innovator, passionate, creative, educator, and outstanding motivator.” Glenn is considered to be one of the leading strategists for platform-driven campaigns in America. He has worked with many of the nation’s largest churches, helping them reach unprecedented pledge to budget ratios. Pastor Joe Champion, Senior Pastor of Celebration Church in Georgetown, TX, stated, “When we were faced with our largest project at Celebration Church, we turned to Glenn Sauls and Sauls Consulting Services to work with us.”

Glenn Sauls, President and Founder of Sauls Consulting Services, Inc., will provide strategic consultation that will move your church toward maximizing your spiritual and financial results in your next campaign. He is passionate about the mission of SCS, which is to serve pastors and churches across America in the areas of stewardship/finances and leadership that will in turn change the world.
