Sunday January 7th was the first Sunday in Beloit for the ministry of Dan and Mary Stertz. They are in the process of moving from Brookings, South Dakota where they previously ministered. Dan was actually born in Beloit, though his family moved from that area while he was still a baby. The Stertz’s pastored in the neighboring city of Monroe at First Baptist Church before moving to South Dakota.
The Stertz’s have six children, David and Elizabeth are married and serving in ministries elsewhere, Jeffery is a student at Maranatha College and Katherine, Brian and Ben are still at home. We wish them a long and fruitful ministry at Faith Baptist Church in Beloit.
We were able to visit the services at Faith Baptist on Sunday, January 14th. I had previously been Dan and Mary’s pastor in Lake Mills, while Dan was attending college at Maranatha. It was a blessing to welcome them back to Wisconsin.
