Pastor Shirley Neeley began her life in the Hawkeye State of Iowa in the month of May. She, however, lived most of her young life in Minneapolis, MN. and was raised in Rehoboth Church of Jesus Christ, pastored by the late Mother C. E. Parker. She was the second eldest of eight children and was born into a dedicated family that knew and loved the Lord and she benefited greatly from that rich heritage.
At age 14, the family moved to Los Angeles, California where they attended Bethany Community Church, pastored by the late Bishop Robert W. McMurray.
In the late 1960’s she met and married the love of her life, James Neeley. God has blessed them to experience over 46 years of marriage. They have two adult children, Toya and James, Jr. and are the proud grandparents of two grandchildren, Jaiden and Dominic Neeley. Her husband, James, serves in the church as the President of the Deacon Board. He is a pillar in the church and loves what he does. He lends solid and persistent support to his wife and the business and organization of God’s House of Glory. Deacon Neeley has been quoted as saying: “my manhood is not threatened by God calling my wife into the pastorate, but I want to support the work of the Lord as He gives me strength."
Pastor Neeley attended Aenon Bible College in Los Angeles, CA; studied Old and New Testament Studies through International Bible Institute; received Ministerial License through Pentecostal Assemblies of the World; assisted Bishop Henry B. Alexander at Shield of Faith Fellowship of Churches in Pomona, CA; was Associate to Bishop David A. Horn, at BCC Life Changing Ministries, Ontario, CA; received Pastoral Ordination through Jesus Outreach Ministries, San Bernardino, CA.
In August of 1991 Deacon James moved his family to Colorado Springs, CO with their employer, Focus on the Family, headed by Dr. James C. Dobson.
In 1992 Pastor Shirley felt the call to the pastorate and heard the firm voice of the Lord telling her to feed His sheep. She pastored successfully for four years. Contrary to what she had always believed, the Lord strongly impressed upon her to leave the pastorate for a season to pursue a new mission. Not knowing whether she would ever step back into the pastorate again, she obeyed the voice of God. That time was well spent in receiving strong revelation from God about His church as a whole. In November of 2011 Pastor Shirley felt the call to again begin pastoring. God’s House of Glory, is located in Colorado Springs on the North side of town at Woodmen & Black Forest Rd.
Pastor Shirley is an extraordinary teacher and preacher of the Word of God and has a mandate from the Lord to bring the TRUTH OF GOD wherever she plants her feet. She burns in her spirit for this lost and dying generation to see and experience the REAL JESUS. He is who He said He is and will do what He said He will do. She feels that Jesus, sadly, has been misrepresented by much of the so-called church and in this season He desires to reveal Himself to the world. This is truly a time of restoration and renewal. God has given Pastor Shirley and her team a great vision for God’s House of Glory, where the Glory of God is being demonstrated. This vision is abundantly coming to fruition. It is time for the TRUE CHURCH of God to arise and shine for the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
