GLIMI Founders Tell Congregation: “It Wasn’t Easy, But It Was Worth It”


The Glorious Light Ministries International, alias DOXA, an indigenous body of Christ established November 2013 by Rev. Emmanuel Weagar Tarr and mother Cecelia Tarr, celebrates its seventh year of existence as a body of Christ. The Glorious Light Ministries International, since its establishment in the country, has been spreading the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ across Liberia and abroad. The GLIMI vision was birthed by Rev. Emmanuel and his wife, Cecelia Tarr, in their rented home with thirteen persons at the time. Since then their ministry has grown to more members and branches as well.

   The Glorious Light Ministries International, non-denominational, is evangelism-focused and -based.

   The church has been involved with discipleship of church leaders by providing support to them in order that they may attend Bible school. According to the church’s founders, the objective of the discipleship training is to enable those at the leadership level to become grounded in the Word of God so that they can help spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

   Rev. Tarr said he wants GLIMI churches to be places where love is demonstrated in word and deed, and where people can experience genuine care and compassion for each other.

   Commenting on this year’s anniversary, Rev. Tarr noted that “it wasn’t easily but it was worth it”.

   According to him, the deadly pandemic, which killed millions of people around the world, stalled many of the operations of GLIMI. He used the occasion to applaud his mission pastors for what he calls “a job well done by their performance”.

   Also speaking during the anniversary was the Mission Resident Pastor, Marcus Kollie, who gave God the praise for another year of completion of the church. Pastor Kollie reiterated similar statements made by his boss, that the year under review was challenging, but he gave God the glory. Commenting on some achievements made, he categorized them into three groups: spirituality, infrastructure and finance.

   He said spirituality focuses on the number of souls saved, while the infrastructure highlights the headquarters’ edifice, among others development, and the finance involves the tithe payers, who have increased in the church.

   This year’s anniversary started with a twenty-day fast and prayer and revival, as well as sporting activities, and was climaxed with a thanksgiving service on November 21, 2021 at the church’s headquarters, located in Whein Town, Paynesville City, outskirts of Monrovia.
