Thank you for Attending our Spring 2012 Meeting.

Where:  Long Hill Baptist Church, 100 Middlebrooks Ave, Trumbull, CT.  Directions

Our Spring 2012 Speakers:

Our Monday evening speaker was Pastor David Short. He grew up in Morrice, a small town in lower Michigan. In 1974, under the preaching of Dr. Bill Rice, Pastor Short answered the call of God for his life to be a pastor. In 1976, he married his childhood sweetheart. Since that time, he has been privileged to serve as an Associate Pastor, Principal, Camp Director, Youth Pastor, and Senior Pastor. And he has planted three churches.

Pastor Short completed his Masters of Biblical Studies at Emmanuel Baptist Theological Seminary in Newington, CT. It was during that time that God moved in his heart to plant Maranatha Baptist Church. The Lord provided his family with a house in Feeding Hills, a part of Agawam, MA, where they moved in October 2008. Pastor Short's desire is to preach and teach God’s Word and to see God’s will fulfilled through people by seeing them accept salvation in Christ, seeing them grow spiritually, and seeing them serving others.

Our Tuesday, April 10 speaker was Pastor Dan Herr of Chester Baptist Church, Chester, MA.  In 1999, the Lord called Pastor Herr into full-time Christian service.  After two years of serving at his home church in Lancaster Country, PA, brother Herr moved to New England to receive additional Bible training at Emmanuel Baptist Theological Seminary.  In 2004, he received the Master of Divinity degree and began making plans to plant an Independent Baptist Church in Chester, Massachusetts.  Last June, Chester Baptist Church celebrated its fifth anniversary and dedicated a church building that God provided.  Pastor Herr and his wife, Patty, have four beautiful little girls—Vivienne, Evelynn, Carolynn, and Gwendolynn. Lord willing, they will sing a song for us.
