Services and History

The GLS Insurance Group was formed when three established agencies joined forces. Osborne Insurance Services, Inc. started in 1994 by Dean Osborne. Dean is a graduate of Faith Baptist Bible College. He began operations in Iowa and expanded throughout the Midwest specializing in church, camp, Christian school, home, auto, and nonprofit insurance. Dean is certified through Cambridge University’s prestigious Risk Management program taught by eminent professors and authors Hammar and Cobble. Tyler Foster, after earning a degree in Computer Information Systems from Missouri State University, entered the insurance industry where he advanced to Sales Director for one of the nation’s largest life insurance companies. In 2006 he started Foster Insurance Group, specializing in offering insurance for churches, higher education, nonprofits, camps, homes, and autos. Jon McKinney started McKinney Insurance Agency, LLC in 2004. Jon graduated from Missouri State University with a Bachelor of Applied Science and Business. He began serving local churches and private schools in Missouri and Arkansas, choosing to specialize in not-for-profit and religious organizations.

As you can see, with almost 50 years of combined experience representing 12 states, joining forces is the natural conclusion for three colleagues working in the same field. Now with combined lines of business with multiple carriers and seasoned staff that understand full-time vocational ministry, GLS Insurance Group will provide knowledge together with wisdom in solving your insurance needs. The GLS Insurance Group Specializes in churches, camps, Christian and private schools, along with non-for-profits and home and auto insurance.
