Alaska Republican Party Chairman Glenn Clary and his wife Debbie will be moving to Lynchburg, Virginia, he announced today in an email.
Clary has accepted a position with Liberty University, which is led by former Anchorage Baptist Temple Pastor Jerry Prevo. Clary is a pastor at Anchorage Baptist Temple, but has announced his retirement to take up leadership of Liberty University’s “Standing for Freedom Center” as vice president of Strategic Partnerships and Alliances.
“Debbie and I would appreciate your prayers as we transition into this new assignment God has directed us to accept. Thank you for your faithfulness to our Lord Jesus Christ and the New Life Community Class. I will miss this chapter of our life,” he wrote in an email.
Clary took over as chairman of the Alaska Republican Party at the end of 2018. The party’s vice chair, Ann Brown, will take over and the vice chair will be vacant. Debbie Clary, the party secretary, will also be vacating her position.
Clary has not announced his resignation from the party itself, but that is an action that can be anticipated. The next State Central Committee meeting is when the new vice chair and new secretary will be elected. That meeting is in June.
