Pastor Steven Henry, Senior Pastor
The Lord brought Pastor Henry to Fostoria Baptist Church in August of 2011 as their senior pastor. Having grown up in a pastor’s home in Indiana, Pastor Henry is well-acquainted with full-time ministry—he counts it both a tremendous privilege and awesome responsibility to serve the Lord and others as pastor of FBC.
Pastor Henry was saved at an early age and enjoyed attending Christian schools throughout his school-age years along with being heavily active in his local church. After graduating from Bible College, the Lord led Pastor Henry to work within his father’s local church in many areas while also teaching in a local Christian School.
It is during this time, that the Lord blessed him with his beautiful wife Erica, who likewise graduated from Bible College with a burden to give her life to her Lord through the local church ministry. The Lord soon moved the Henrys on to work at a church and Christian school in Terre Haute, Indiana for several years.rnrnIn 2006, the Lord called Pastor Henry to be the youth pastor at Temple Baptist Church in Herndon, Virginia, where the Lord blessed the Henry”s with a fruitful ministry to His glory.
In 2011, through much prayer and clear direction, Pastor Henry and Erica followed the Lord’s calling to Fostoria, Michigan, where they are delighted to serve Him and this local group of believers. Both Pastor Henry and Erica are passionate about seeing families “know God, love God, and live for God.”
Through his preaching ministry, Pastor Henry’s burden for people to “know what they believe and why they believe it” comes through; his passionate and dynamic preaching makes his love for the Lord and people obvious. Ministering together, Pastor Henry and Erica’s attitude is simple: “…ourselves your servants, for Jesus’ sake.” (II Corinthians 4:5b)
