THE HOUSE MODESTO, USA
Glen was a high school All American Running Back and accepted a scholarship to Louisiana Tech University. As a four year starter, he was All Conference, won two National Championships, and was Most Outstanding Back for three out of four years. During his freshman year in college someone told him he needed to be saved to go to Heaven. Berteau responded, “Saved from what?” Kneeling on the floor of his dormitory room, Berteau accepted Jesus Christ on April 30, 1973. As a Youth Pastor, he established one of the largest youth ministries in the nation. He is the author of the youth manual, “Strategies for Advancing Youth Ministries.”
More recently, he has authored two books, “Christianity Lite” and “Christianity To Go.” Presently, Glen is Senior Pastor of The House in Modesto, California, a church of more than 8,000. This ministry in Central California has been explosive. All outreaches at The House Modesto total over 160,000 people won to the Lord. In 2009, The House Modesto was highlighted by Outreach Magazine as the Second Fastest Growing Church in America. Currently it is in the Top 50 Largest Churches in America.
As a gifted speaker, teacher, and evangelist, Glen has ministered at conferences, churches, camps and conventions all over the world.
INSPIRE CHURCH, USA
From humble beginnings in 2001 to a thriving multi-site congregation, Pastor Mike Kai is passionate about building the Church. He is a visionary leader with a heart to advance the Kingdom of God by attracting non-believers to Christ, connecting them to their church family, training them for life and ministry and sending each person to fulfill their God-given potential.
