Director, Performing Arts Program
Ed and Tammy started Urban Impact Foundation (UIF) in 1996 to touch the city, one person, one family, one block at a time. Back then they made their home a refuge for a steady stream of guests from the craziness outside.
In typical Tammy style, she began the Performing Arts ministry in 2005 in her living room with 12 students. Weekly choir rehearsals soon turned into "dinner with the Glovers," Bible study, and then Choir practice. By year's end, 40 young people met weekly in the Glover home. Today the Performing Arts Program boasts 120 students in the Middle School and High School Choir who have been seen by 2.6 million people. There are also 70 students in the Children's Choir, 115 participants in the Performing Arts Academy, and two traveling ensembles--the Urban Impact Singers and the Urban Impact Shakes.
Tammy is the mother of four beautiful children ages 21, 19, 15, and 13. All of her children have been born and raised on the North Side of Pittsburgh and are heroes in her eyes. She and Ed have also "parented" 13 other children from the neighborhood. These 13, while not formally adopted, are also seated around the dinner table when the family gathers.
Tammy represents Urban Impact to a variety of organizations. She graduated from Seattle Pacific University and received her Masters of Divinity from Alliance Theological Seminary in Nyack, NY. She began her career teaching English as a second language.
Students will perform "Much Ado About Nothing" at 8PM on July 26 & 27 and 2PM on July 28 at the August Wilson Center.
