  • D. J. Bulls

    worship minister


    D.J. leads the worship ministry and coordinates communication at Glenwood. He joined the Glenwood family in Summer 2021. He’s been in full-time ministry since 2003 and has served churches of all sizes and flavors in Texas and also in Atlanta, GA.


    He loves the music of the church and has quite a large and extensive hymnal collection. Yeah, he’s a nerd. (and has finished his Ph. D. in church music, but for the dissertation’s closing stages)…and you’ll find his name on a lot of the songs we sing as an arranger. He believes passionately in the importance of the church’s worship, especially in the power of singing together.


    Most importantly, he’s married to Meghan and dad to Mackenzie. Oh, and he is a Bat-Maniac (the original Batman, Adam West, of course) and a die-hard third generation Alabama Crimson Tide fan.
