About the President

NEWIM of Cape Town is headed up in ministry by Glenda McMinn. She has been involved in church ministry for 25+ years and has been involved in women’s ministry for the past 18 years, doing it all simply “out of her own need”.

Glenda was born in a Christian home and has always had a strong love for Jesus. She is a lover of people, and she has a vision to help less secure women grow into mature, content women for God. She has known the call of God for ministry for a long time. Through many trials and loss (miscarriage, health), she has grown into “finding His lap and His heartbeat”.

She has had the privilege of being chosen through the adoption process as mom to Daniel (18 years old) and Jessica (13 years old).

She pastors, along with her sweet, energetic, 6ft4 “Man of God” husband, Clive, at the Bettaway Community Church in Delft. Together they were sent out to plant this church 18 years ago and have seen God perform many miracles there. They have been married for 22 years this year, and he is her rock and best friend.

Her relaxation comes through reading, preferably in a hut by the sea, and she is kept young by her love for music.

Glenda has been a musician for the past 18 years, and is a trained Choir Director and Voice Coach. Her biggest desire is to see heaven, along with every other woman that she introduces to Jesus.
