You, Your Circle, Your World
You. Yes, you heard us right. Our vision is you. We have seen you in our hearts and prayers before you visited this website, came to a service, or showed up at an event. Our whole heart as a church is to see you thrive - spirit, soul and body. You have a call. You have a destiny. You have an everyday life to live. You are a leader. You have influence. It doesn’t matter where you find yourself today, we believe in you and those God-given dreams. They never go away and God doesn’t change His mind. It’s time to discover, revive and activate all that is in you.
Your circle. Every person has a circle that they function in. Often we think our sphere is small but our circles of influence are much bigger than we realize. Our family, our friends, our community, our workplace, our industries, our school, our interests. Our past, present and future. Your circle is vast and we know that you are meant to enjoy it, succeed in it, and reach it with the love of Jesus.
Your world. We know every single person is called to have a vision for the world. Jesus said, go and make followers in all nations. A nation can be simply defined as a group of people. This is not just a far-reaching tribe. Make your mark of impact every day, in ways both small and big. Rise up in your business environment. Become a community leader. Take on roles that make a difference. Go after helping those around you. You have a bigger vision worthy to be realized.
Russ and Judi Jo Adams, Church at Glass Chapel’s lead pastors, are what some would call modern day pioneers. From international missions and humanitarian projects around the world, to a lifetime of planting Bible colleges, to leading the way in community business - they have been innovative in everything they’ve done and founding Church at Glass Chapel is no different.
Church at Glass Chapel’s vision to empower people for life is not just a pipe dream for these pastors, it’s the lifeblood of who they are and what they’ve done for 25 plus years so far. Adding a church home and family to what they have already founded and oversee has been the icing on the cake, doing life with their church family and helping dreams come true.
In 2014, they purchased the Glass Chapel. In their years of ownership, Glass Chapel has become one of Tulsa’s premiere wedding venues and is a place of beauty in the local community. The grounds are also headquarters for XploreNations Bible College, Broken Arrow campus and headquarters for the 40 plus international XploreNations Bible College campuses lighting fires around the world.
Through all that they do, they still burned to see their Broken Arrow neighbors thrive and do all God has for their lives. Their worldwide vision to “Train Leaders to Impact Nations” expanded into the church vision as well. By God‘s direction and with that passion, in August 2017, Church at Glass Chapel was officially born.
Already thriving, with a strong leadership team to run operations for Glass Chapel, XploreNations Bible College campus and headquarters - the Church at Glass Chapel quickly came to life. People are coming from right around the corner and all over the world to experience the life, freedom and vision coming from this church team and the couple at its helm.
With over 25 years of ministry, business, and church leadership experience, Russ and Judi Jo Adams pour their hearts into Church at Glass Chapel and the people they are called to empower. They love life and live to serve along with their two sons, Wesley and Evan and their boxer, Boomer.
What's the heart of this team? You! The staff here at Church at Glass Chapel focuses on helping you find and fulfill the purpose God has for you. They have a passion to see others thrive, and become all that God has created them to be.
Years of ministry and following God's plan for their own lives makes for a staff filled with wisdom and experience, enabling them to fulfill the vision of the church and the dreams in their hearts. They are always looking for new ways for you to connect, serve, and build new relationships! It is so much more than just a staff; it's a family.
