Morris Gleiser was born and raised in a Christian home. He received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior at the age of six through the influence of his godly father and mother. He surrendered his life to the Lord at the age of eight. He actually heard the call of God to the ministry at the age of eighteen, and became burdened for teenagers a year later. He carries that burden to this day. He entered Bob Jones University (where he met his wife, Lynn) in the fall of 1972 and graduated with a four-year degree in three years. Lynn also is a BJU graduate in the field of Home Economics. God has given them two sons who have dedicated their lives to serve the Lord also in the ministry.
Upon graduation, Morris and Lynn went to minister at the Providence Baptist Church in Riverview, Florida, where he was the church’s youth pastor. He served as Youth and Associate pastor for fourteen years. In that ministry, many young people dedicated their lives to full time Christian service through his ministry and are serving in local churches and in various ministries to this day.
In the winter of 1987, Morris felt the definite call of God to revival work and evangelism, yet he continued to carry a burden for young people. Making his life and future available to the Lord, Morris waited for the Lord to reveal His plan for him.
In May of 1989, after much prayer, Morris became the director of WEST BRANCH, a new camp ministry of the Bill Rice Ranch in Flagstaff, Arizona. This new camp ministry was exactly what the Lord had for the Gleisers. Morris and Lynn began traveling with their two sons in evangelism, while promoting and directing the camp.
With the urging of the Lord, Morris sensed the need to return to a local church ministry. In March of 1994 he joined the Pastoral staff of the Tri-City Baptist Church in the Kansas City, Missouri area where he served as the Youth Pastor.
Morris continued to feel the leading of the Lord for the cause of Revival throughout our Country. In the summer of 2000, Morris entered full time Evangelism/Revival work as the Staff Evangelist of the Burge Terrace Baptist Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. His desire is to continue to minister to young and old alike through evangelism and a strong pulpit ministry.
Morris & Lynn Gleiser have two sons: Andy, a graduate of Bob Jones University, is married and is the Youth Pastor at Burge Terrace Baptist Church (Indianapolis). Chad is a businessman in Indianapolis and he and his family attend Burge Terrace Baptist Church as well.
