Windham resident assumes leadership role for Maine Mormons

 A Windham resident will serve in a leadership role as a counselor to the new president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Augusta.

Glenn Davis of Windham will serve
in a leadership role as one of the top
counselors to the new president of
the Church of Jesus Christ of 
Latter-day Saints in Augusta.
Glenn Davis of Windham has assumed duties as one of two top counselors for President Richard J. Taylor of Bowdoinham. Steve Bryant of Saco will serve as another of Taylor’s counselors.  

Davis lives in Windham with his wife Janet and is employed by the Maine State Ballet in Falmouth as the School Director, a position he has held since 1997. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in History, Education and French from the University of Maine and is a certified K-12 teacher.


In his free time, Davis spends his time cycling, cooking, and with his wife, ballerina Janet Davis, and their daughter Emma. He is currently studying for his MBA.

Prior to this new role, Davis recently served as Bishop in the Windham Ward. Before that, he served as the Young Men's president and the elder's quorum president.


I am grateful for the opportunity to serve in this capacity. I am a true Mainer at heart, having been born and raised here. And I love the people of Maine,” Davis said. “I am especially thankful for the interdenominational ties created with the Windham Area Clergy Association and strive to be a builder of bridges among all of us. I have great faith in God and humanity, which gives me optimism and hope, even in these stressful times.  I strive to be a light and invite all of us to love and treat our neighbors as ourselves with dignity and respect.”

In Maine, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is divided into area territories called stakes. Each of these stakes is headed by a president (Taylor), and two counselors (Davis and Bryant). They are assisted in their responsibilities by a 12-member stake high council, a stake women's organization (Relief Society) presidency, a stake Young Women's presidency, a stake Young Men's presidency, and a stake Sunday School presidency. 

Local assignments within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, such as stake presidencies are lay appointments, meaning that they are unpaid, volunteer positions. The new members of the stake presidency are often expected to serve for approximately nine years while still managing their employment and family obligations.
