History

Henrietta Mears was the inspiration and genius of the great Sunday school at First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood with it's more than 6,000 members. She was teacher of the college-age class and became known as "Teacher", a name she is still fondly referred to by those who loved her. She founded Gospel Light Publications as a publisher for her Bible curriculum, which continues today to help thousands of Sunday schools teach the Word of God effectively.

Henrietta's Mears' last and perhaps her greatest vision for world-wide ministry was and continues as Gospel Literature International (GLINT). The work of GLINT was already well under way in 1963 when Henrietta Mears was called home to heaven on March 18, 1963 -- just two years after she founded GLINT in June of 1961.

Through GLINT, the work of Henrietta Mears continues around the world as the printed page in many languages continues to proclaim the same message she did: Jesus Christ is Savior and Lord. As a 501(c)3, non-profit organization, GLINT has been able to help fund book and curriculum projects in such nations as Belarus, Croatia, Lebanon, India, Nepal, Myanmar, Russia, Poland, Hungary, Egypt and China among many others.

Henrietta's dreams and mission live on today as we celebrate 50 years of Service and Ministry. And GLINT moves forward in those wondrous footsteps!

To learn more about Dr. Mears' ministry and writings, be sure to read her biography, Dream Big: The Story of Henrietta Mears, or her classic Bible study guide, What the Bible Is All About. There is also a chapter on Dr. Mears in Tyndale House's book, People Who Shaped the Church.
