About us

Love of Jesus Family Church of Newark is a non-denominational Christian church that operates by the power of the holy spirit.  Our Lead/Head Pastor founded the church

right after she was ordained as a pastor on December 29, 1991.  

Our church held services at the Leaguers on Clinton Avenue in Newark until we moved into our building at 88-94 Boylan St. in Newark.

We have over 30 ministries in our house under Love of Jesus Family Church, Young Disiples Ministry and Young Disciples Community Development Corp.

A list of all of our ministires will be posted soon.

Barbara Glanton accepted Jesus Christ into her heart on October 15, 1984.  About two years later she said yes to the call by God and started the Young Disciples Ministries on March 25, 1986. She was later ordained a Pastor on December 29, 1991 and later ordained a Bishop on June 30, 2013 by her pastor, Jason Alvarez.

Bishop Barbara Glanton has a church, ministry and community development corporation all held at our  Boylan Street location in Newark, NJ, including over 21 outreach ministries.

Bishop Barbara Glanton served as a Board member for Family Intervention Service for four years, a non-profit organization committed to strengthen families and promoting the safety and well being of children. She has received several awards, such as the Irvington Rotary Club, (in which she was the first recipient to receive this award), Urban League Guild of Essex County, the National Sorority of Phi Delta Kappa, Inc Citation Award for Christian Leadership and the Eagles Excellence Award for the international awards (preaching the gospel outside the United States), and the Trailblazer award and the visionary award. 

It is because of her labor of love for people and winning souls for the kingdom of God that she continues to reach out into the community. 

Outside of her ministerial functions, she is the proud mother of Cyrenthia Burgess; grandmother of Aneesah Glanton, Quianna Camper and Keith Burgess; and great grandmother of Johnae Dawson, Taree Dawson, Sanai Burgess and Kairo Burgess. 

Assistant Pastor

From the wrong path to the right path, once was blind and now able to see. A husband, father,  reverend and President at Putting Things Together Auto, came from the wrong side in 2010 when he joined the right side at Love of Jesus Family Church. 

He has been washed by the word of God and became a Deacon by 2012, Youth Minister by 2014 and Reverend by 2018. 

Rev. Onley loves God, loves God's children, loves God's laws and decrees, and loves God's abundance of Blessings.

Rev. Dwayne can be seen giving  and teaching the word during any of our services, as well as on our YouTube Channel.  He is, also, actively, pouring into our youth by giving direction, Godly advice and encouragement during our

"I Have A Voice" Youth Nights.

Rev. Dwayne is a faithful member of the church along with his wife Deaconess Malindia and children Kennedy, Paityn, Katia & DJ (Dwayne Jr.) Onley.
