Stoney Earl Carlisle

On Feb. 9, 2018 at 2:28 am Stoney Earl Carlisle went home to heaven to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus.  Stoney was born June 14, 1953 to Stonewall Jackson and Earlene Carlisle.  Stoney is survived by his wife - Linda, 3 sons - Jeremy, Chad and Richard, 2 daughters - Tonya and Miranda, 14 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, 2 sisters - Elaine and Sheila and an extended family who loved him dearly.  Stoney served proudly in the Army and worked oilfield throughout life.  He was a good man who worked hard and loved deeply.  He helped family and friends unconditionally and never asked for anything in return.  Stoney was a gifted musician like his parents as well as a gifted carpenter but definitely was not a plumber.  He loved helping others, landscaping, building, working out, writing songs, yard work and watching any and all sports.  Stoney had a great sense of humor and had a nickname for all.  Linda aka Booget, Betty aka Sally, Sheila and Roy aka Aunt Bunny and Uncle Gus.  Stoney was referred to as Boog by Linda and as Uncle Bubba by family.  Stoney could always be counted on in a crisis except if it involved bugs, bats, frogs or spiders.  He was a private person who enjoyed traveling for work and pleasure and who was humble and had one of the biggest hearts.  He loved his family and was a great provider.  Stoney was a Christian who had great faith and loved Jesus.  He worried about people and often could be heard telling someone get saved.  Stoney will be greatly missed by his family, friends and coworkers.  But I believe Stoney would say to all - Now that I am gone cry for me a little think of me sometimes but not for too long leave me in peace and go live life because this is not goodbye but simply until we see each other again.

Melissa came into the world on a chilly, bright December day. The youngest child of Billy and Carol Airhart, she grew up adored and surrounded by six brothers and sisters, friends and family. Growing up in Hornbeck, she cheered for the Hornets until she graduated with the Class of 1986. Not too many years after high school, her dreams came true when she welcomed her daughter, Randi, into the world; she loved being a mother.  Her son, Austin, was born a few years later. For her, the sun rose and set on her children. For the last 14 years she has served the community as a dispatcher for the Vernon Parish Sheriffs Department where she was recently promoted to Dispatch Supervisor.

Four years ago she met and married Chuck Kennedy, the love of her life. She became step-mother to Shelby and Matthew.  In the last few years she loved nothing more than spending time spoiling her grandchildren and worshiping Jesus. She was a member of Galilee Baptist Church where Chuck is a deacon. She woke up every day grateful for all she was blessed with. On Saturday, January 20, 2018 surrounded by her six brothers and sisters, family, and friends, she will be celebrated and honored. We know our baby girl is safe and well in the arms of Jesus.

J’Nett Burkett Glass

Founding Pastor Mrs_ Nett Glass.png

J’Nett Burkett Glass joined the lover of her life, Rev. George L. Glass, Jr.,  and the Lover of her Soul, her Savior, on Saturday, October 17, 2015,  as she passed peacefully from this life to The Promise, at the age of 83.  She was born in Converse, Louisiana, on May 26, 1932, to Novis and Clarice Burkett.  Upon graduation from DeRidder High School where she was an active part of the marching band, as well as being an honor student, she continued her education at McNeese State University.  While at McNeese she participated in the Cowboy Marching Band, was a member of ROTC and graduated on the Dean’s list with a degree in Business Education.  She furthered her education and acquired a Bachelor of Science degree in Primary and Secondary Education.

In 1954 she married her childhood sweetheart, the love of her life, Rev. George L. Glass, Jr, and was the wind beneath his wings for over sixty years, until his passing just twenty-one (21) days prior to her home going.

While serving alongside her husband in various pastorates in Arkansas and Louisiana, she was a professional educator, her last assignment teaching sixth graders at Rosepine Elementary School, Rosepine, La.  She was held in high esteem by fellow teachers, parents, and the community.  Identified as a capable educator, she instilled discipline, respect, honesty, and imparted into each child a belief in their worthiness.    She was a founding member of Beauregard Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, and a member of the Kisatchee Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

J’Nett and her husband were founding pastors of Grace DeRidder.  Her passion was women’s and children’s ministry, where she left a lasting legacy.    She was a dear friend to everyone she met, always greeting one with open arms and a genuine smile.  The impact of her life was profound, as she quietly ministered to so many with troubled hearts; she was a gifted encourager.   She wove golden threads into the tapestry of countless lives with her gifted ability to listen, discern, and share her depth of wisdom.

Her legacy is continued by her sons, Pastor George Lee Glass and wife, Karen, and Gregg Glass; grandsons Steven Ross (Jessica), and George “Lee” Glass, II; great grandchildren Noah, Arielle, and Farrah Ross: one sister, Joyce Rodgers (Tom), a host of nieces and nephews and a world of family and friends.

Reverend George L. Glass, Jr.

Sr Pastor Head Shot.jpg

                    Angels rejoiced as the Reverend Bishop George L. Glass Jr.’s faith ended in sight on Saturday, September 26, 2015.  He passed peacefully from this life into his life eternal at the age of 82.   He was born to Rev. George L. Glass, Sr. and Clovie Nichols Glass on July 8, 1933, in DeRidder, Louisiana.    He graduated from DeRidder High School as senior class president in 1952.   After attending Apostolic Bible Institute in St Paul Minnesota, he married the love of his life, J'Nett Burkett, and together they began a beautiful journey which spanned over sixty years.

Their ministry began in 1954, when he was privileged to serve alongside his father as associate pastor in Baton Rouge, La.   The next five years provided opportunity to pastor churches in Tunica, Bunkie, and Camp 8, Louisiana, before they were led to North Little Rock, Arkansas, in pastorate over eighteen years.   In 1978, their journey led them back to DeRidder, Louisiana where they ministered to the congregation of First United Pentecostal Church, and served as Director of Marketplace Ministry for Magnolia Life Insurance and Hixson Funeral Homes, throughout the state of Louisiana.    

In 1988, he became the pastor of Soul’s Harbor in Dry Creek, Louisiana.  In 1992, he became the founding pastor of The Ministries of Grace in DeRidder.  He was instrumental in establishing churches in surrounding areas, encompassing churches in Dequincy, Reeves, Evans and Sulphur.

Among his peers, he was known as the "Pastors’ Pastor".  He was a true shepherd and a peacemaker, always unhurried, ready to listen, share wisdom and prayers, a counselor and confidant to many.         

Bro. Glass was blessed with the ability to touch souls like no one else.  He ministered to people right where they were, with no judgement, just a smile, a hug, a joke or humorous story.  He has left a unique “soul print” on thousands of lives, reaching across the globe.        The heart of this humble and great man was simply loving people with the Love of God.  His time in the pulpit was just a small thread woven throughout the tapestry of his ministry.  It was time spent visiting and serving people He most cherished.          

He was gifted in putting people at ease, knowing when to show up, when to speak, when to be silent, always offering his unique love and compassion.  He was a recognized and respected face at local and regional hospitals, supporting people through difficult times, content to share conversation with those around him while waiting for that fresh pot of coffee to brew.   His many phone calls consisted of, "This is Bro. Glass, just checking to see how you are doing", and always ending with, "I love you".

He lived for those around him.  He lived to give, he gave to leave, he left to build, and he built to change.

         Those who continue his legacy are his wife, J'Nett Burkett Glass; sons George Lee Glass and wife Karen, and Gregg Glass; grandsons Steven Ross (Jessica), and George “Lee” Glass, II; great grandchildren Noah, Arielle, and Farrah Ross: one brother, James Glass and wife Mary; two nieces Judy Taylor (Bob) and Vicki Plyante (Jeff); two great nieces, two great nephews; and a world of family and friends.

Visitation for friends and family will be Thursday, October 1, 2015, from Noon until 6 PM;   Celebration of his Life will begin at 6:30 PM, at Grace, 1021 W. First St., DeRidder, Louisiana.   Homegoing Internment service will follow at Noon on Friday, at Beauregard Cemetery, Highway 171 South, DeRidder, Louisiana.

In memorial to Bishop Glass, tributes may be directed to his favorite ministry, Soul Soup by Grace, a community soup kitchen; Grace Building Fund; or other ministry of choice.
