About Glade Kynaston

After retiring from his contracting business in 2009, Glade went back to school and obtained his Associate Degrees in Video Production, Audio Engineering, Stage Lighting, Graphic Design, and Photography. He then started a new business in event and wedding videography. It didn’t take him long to learn that he did not want to work in the wedding industry, so he focused his efforts on photography and videography for local businesses. After answering an ad for a Sound Engineer position at Lakeview UMC,  they soon learned of his other talents. Glad was enlisted to move their services online.

What is Glade passionate about?

“Spreading the word of our Lord to as many people as possible throughout the world.” – Glade Kynaston
