Evang. Glennelle Matterson
First Lady Glennelle Matterson was reared under The Salvation and Deliverance Ministries since 1977 under the leadership of the late Apostle William Brown along with her family since the age of 11 years. The Lord saw fit to bring first lady through a challenging youth experience, and now she is able to share her testimony of God’s delivering power to youth and young women all over. Evangelist Matterson was ordained in 1996 by the late Apostle William Brown. Evangelist remained busy in the ministry, serving as a member, vice-president and eventually president of of the radio and television choir. During her membership she also joined the Soul Seekers Outreach Prison and Hospital ministry where she had the opportunity to preach and minister at various prison facilities, hospitals, youth facilities and shelters across the tri-state area.
Evangelist Matterson has been blessed to preach, pray for the sick and minister in song in London England, Jamaica West Indies, Canada and several states across the country. During these numerous evangelical opportunities, First Lady Matterson was afforded the mentor-ship of every Pastors wife. First Lady gleaned from all of these great women of God and relationships which were forged several years ago still exist today. First Lady realized that these women of God were true spiritual assets that only served to enhance and aid in her growth. Many thanks to the many First Ladies who have been and will always be an inspiration in her life. Even more so now, as she serves alongside her husband at New Beginnings Church of Deliverance in Harlem, NY.
While a member of Salvation and Deliverance, she had opportunities to minister along with the choir in such places as the Apollo Theater, Philadelphia Civic Center and Madison Square Garden.
Evangelist Matterson recently celebrated 31 years of marriage to Bishop Michael Matterson Sr. who she now works very closely with as First Lady of The New Beginnings Church of Deliverance in Harlem, NY. Evangelist Matterson is currently employed as a New York State Certified Teacher Assistant. She has worked in this capacity for the past 15 years. She is the mother of 3 beautiful young adults; Joseph, Michele and Michael II. She is also the proud grandmother of Joseph II. Evangelist Matterson has a deep burden for all of the people of God and especially for the women. Evangelist Matterson works closely with the women of the church as they endeavor to continue to grow in grace and the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. There are several projects that Evangelist Matterson desires to accomplish. It is her desire to see the women of God continue to make a difference in this wicked and perverse generation.
One of First Lady’s favorite scripture can be found in the readings of Isaiah 54:17
“No weapon formed against you shall prosper and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thous shalt condemn, for this is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their righteousness is of me saith the Lord”
