ALLENWOOD, Pa.—First Baptist Church of Elimsport honored its pastor, Todd Baker, for 20 years of ministry at the church. The congregation marked the anniversary July 19 by giving him and his wife, Kristi, an engraved clock and will celebrate more fully in the fall.
Todd graduated from Davis College (formerly Practical Bible Training School) in 2000 and immediately began his ministry at First Baptist. He and Kristi are the parents of four children: Caleb, Benjamin, Abigail, and Josiah.
The church has had several former pastors, including Raymond Colas, Robert Sauser, Paul Heiniger, Dale Moore, Lee Kliewer, and Craig Brittingham. “What a blessing to have a history of continual faithful teaching, preaching, and living of God’s Word,” the church says. “It is the prayer of this congregation that God’s Word will continue to go forth and reach the community and beyond under Pastor Todd’s ministry, testimony, and godly influence.”
