About the Underdog Preacher

Reverend Garry D. McGlinchy, Jr.

Garry McGlinchy, Jr.

As a pastor, I have found that I most effectively meet the needs of the underdogs of society. I have been ministering for over twenty years in California and Virginia in youth and now as the lead pastor of Culpeper Hope Community Church of the Nazarene in Northern Virginia.

My wife and I have one son, Tate, who is on the autism spectrum. We have three dogs and enjoy spending time as a family and being out in the community.

I write about the way that God is shaping my understanding of His Word and His mission for the world. Follow along with me as I learn how to preach to the underdogs. Usually, I’m preaching to myself.
