Bishop Franklin Glover, Sr.

DSC_0699The honorable Bishop Franklin L. Glover, Sr. grew up in Powder Springs, Georgia. He is one of eleven children born to the late Mr. Marvin F. Glover and Mrs. Dora Betty Glover. His father was a brick mason by trade and mother is a homemaker. Both were also very involved in the church and community.

After High School, he answered the call of God in his life and was later ordained as a Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ at an early age. He received his teaching under Chief Apostle Raymond Moss, Sr. of the Back to the Bible Holiness Church, Marietta, Georgia and the late Bishop Paul Luther Haynes, First Baptist Church, Senoia, Georgia.

He is  married to Evangelist Loretta Jones Glover. He has five children in which are in support of his ministry. Three of his children are ordained ministers; Elder Leviticus V.

Keyana, Micaiah A., Makaya T., Leviticus, Jr., Zion K., Christian Franklin, MaTaj D., MaKari D. and Jaelyn C., three great grandchildren, Nyeisha,  and CJ III., Logan N.

In 1998 Bishop Glover was asked to pastor in Cedartown, Georgia where he stayed for five years. This mission began with two members and his family. The membership grew so quickly that he followed the leadership of God into a new realm. In 2003 he became God’s visionary, founder and leader of what is now know as Restoration Tabernacle, Inc. located at 52 International Court Dallas, Georgia. In 2004, he was properly selected by the Board of Elders to be ordained as Bishop over this organization.

Thus Bishop Glover truly believes in his attempt to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ in being concerned about welfare of the total person; physically, spiritually, financially, and psychology. Insomuch that Bishop Glover was chosen & awarded as one of the 2007
Atlanta Gospel Choice Awards and Gospel Superfest winners for Pastors that engage in community assistance. His vision has taken us to new heights in forming a unity of Churches in which he is the Presiding Bishop of The United Churches of Restoration Inc.
