Our Mission

At GLS Insurance, where we are committed to “Grow, Lead, Serve,” our mission is rooted in a foundational set of values that drive every aspect of our operations and interactions with clients. We are mission-oriented, dedicated to not only achieving but exceeding standards of excellence with every opportunity. Our approach is built on fairness and mutual winning, ensuring that both GLS and our clients prosper together.

As proactive risk managers, we are always ahead, providing stable and ethical solutions that uphold the highest standards of integrity. We believe in educating our clients, empowering them with factual and honest advice to make informed decisions. By focusing on these principles, GLS Insurance consistently creates real, tangible value for all stakeholders, guiding them with trust and expertise through the complexities of risk management.

An independent insurance agency focused on growth.

Our core values have been with us from the start to today, where we continue to be focused on growth and driven to serve our clients. GLS Insurance is the product of two agencies owned by Tyler Foster and Jon McKinney, who joined forces to create a new insurance experience. With the power of their collective experience, they have taken the GLS name to new heights, offering highly focused insurance solutions to address the needs and risks of businesses, organizations, and families.

Dedicated to leading by example.

With the combined forces of the GLS team and the in-depth experience brought to the table, we are well-versed in insuring clients with various needs, from business to personal insurance. Our seasoned staff is committed to providing knowledge and wisdom in solving your insurance needs. We are also a technology-driven agency when it comes to convenience and reliability and our team goes through extensive training and credentialing so we can exceed your expectations.

We are committed to serving the needs of others.

We’re an independent insurance agency focused on serving you—but what does that mean for you? It means we can bring you access to a selection of insurance solutions across insurance companies to give you the choice of coverage. With extensive services including advisement in risk management, property and casualty insurance, group benefits, and retirement products, we are also experienced in offering coverage for churches, camps, Christian and private schools, as well as non-profits.

We are driven to serve you and exceed expectations. We accomplish that through our team, who train extensively and have earned prestigious credentials to better serve you.
