His church announced that Glenn died on, of all days, Easter Sunday from COVID-19 a week after testing positive for the novel coronavirus.

During that infamous in-person service, the Bishop said he firmly believed God was larger than the virus and said he was proud of being “controversial” for violating safety protocols. The Bishop also claimed he was an “essential” worker, saying he’s a preacher and he talks to God.
