Glenn grew up in Saint John, NB. After completing grade 12 at Simonds Regional High School, he enrolled at Atlantic Baptist College in Moncton where he completed a diploma in biblical studies, and two years of arts courses. He also met his future wife there, Darlene, to whom he has been married for almost 30 years. He completed his undergraduate work at Mount Allison University where he took an honours degree in Greek, then went on to Acadia Divinity College, where he completed his MDiv, and an MA in Old Testament studies. During his MDiv, he was asked to teach introductory Hebrew, and the Greek, and has taught at the College since that time. At the request of ADC, he undertook a masters degree in library and information studies at Dalhousie University and then in 1991 he and his family moved to St. Andrews, Scotland where he began doctoral studies of which he graduated in 2000. He returned to Acadia in 1993 to assume his position as a professor of biblical languages and as a librarian, and in 2003 he succeeded Dr. Timothy Ashley as the Professor of Old Testament Studies.

In his formative years Glenn attended the Edith Avenue Baptist Church. He became a Christian in the summer of 1974 while at Camp Tulakadik on Cassidy Lake in New Brunswick. Since moving to the Annapolis valley he has pastored two congregations and now he and his family attend the Third Horton Baptist Church in Canaan where they live.

Glenn is married to Darlene and they have two children, Felicia and Ryan. They recently added another daughter(-in-law) to their family, Tracey.
