I have worked in the corporate world and as a roofer with my father. I taught for five years at Heritage Baptist Academy (1991 – 1996). I earned a B.A. degree in Bible with an ancient language minor from Bob Jones University (1996-1999). I returned to Heritage Baptist Ministries and assumed the role of associate pastor and school principal. While working in that capacity I earned an M.A. degree in Christian studies from Luther Rice Seminary (2008). I became the sole pastor of Heritage Baptist Church in 2010. I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin’s Follicular Lymphoma (stage four) in that same year. I have completed treatment for this non-curable but manageable cancer. I was involved in all areas of the church and school ministry along with my wife, Sue. I have five sons: John, Henry, Walter, William, and Jedidiah. I now live in Swanton, Ohio. I have my own handyman and roofing services company. I attend Bethany Baptist Church in Grand Rapids.

Hi Pastor O, Kevin and I went to church Sunday and tonight (Wednesday). Josh did a great job both times, though we missed you. Hope you are having a nice respite in the Lord.
Looking forward to seeing you again.
Wonderful, Kaci! Hope you will be back soon. My wife, who is rarely sick, began to have difficulty breathing yesterday. She was checked for Covid. Therefore, I have to livestream the sermon from home because we are all under quarantine until the results come back 😦 So, I will miss actually being there today; however, I will be there virtually. Josh will lead the rest of the service live.
Praying earnestly for your entire family. We are planning to be at church this morning.
