The CEO Series

Join us for the second installment in our new series of discussions with CEOs about their experiences, lessons learned, and their leadership journey. 

February's guest is Glenn Cranfield, President & CEO, Nashville Rescue Mission.

Glenn has been involved in ministry and education since graduating from East Central Oklahoma State University in 1983. After obtaining his credentials in Ministry and Music Education, Glenn spent five years as a public educator working with instrumental music programs in Oklahoma public schools. During this time, he also served as Youth Pastor and Worship Leader for his local church.

Prior to his arrival to Nashville Rescue Mission, Glenn became involved in full-time ministry in 1991, serving as Lead Pastor in Oklahoma City for six years. It was during this time Glenn was invited to speak at a City Rescue Mission chapel service and a passion for helping the poor, hungry and homeless was born.

In 1997, after five years of volunteering and serving on the board of directors, Glenn accepted the position of President/CEO of City Rescue Mission.

Under his leadership City Rescue Mission went from providing the basics—food, clothing and shelter—to adding a dental clinic, medical services, job placement help, drug addiction and mental health counseling services.

He led City Rescue Mission until 2006 before returning to the pulpit as Senior Pastor of Capitol Hill Assembly. With a longing to return to the ministry of helping the homeless, in February 2012, Glenn accepted the role of President and CEO of Nashville Rescue Mission where he has faithfully served for the past two years.
