Sunday June 17th was Father’s Day and I visited at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Elkhorn. My son, Paul, is the pastor of this local church ministry. During the service he allowed me to share a report of the ongoing ministry of the WFBC in Wisconson. It was a blessing to share in the ministry of my son.
In Wisconsin we have a number of father-son and family ministries. Former director, Leon Leeds, is an assistant at First Baptist Church in Waupaca and his son, Dan, is pastoring Trinity Baptist Church in Fond du Lac. We have had three Buhrows pastoring in the state with Andy the dad serving at Temple Baptist Church in LaCrosse with is son, Scott, being the pastor at Bible Baptist Church in Reedsburg and his son, Eric, pastoring at Immanuel Baptist Church in Rice Lake. Pastor Keith Habegger is the pastor in Holmen and his son, Daniel, served at Point Baptist Church in Mineral Point several years ago, and he is coming back to the state to take on the ministry of Temple Baptist Church in LaCrosse when Andy Buhrow takes up the position of Director of Wisconsin Baptists for Life. Brothers John and Steve Terpstra are pastors at Calvary Baptist Church in Barron and Faith Baptist Church in LaCrosse, respectively. Praise the Lord for families who are committed to the work of Christ and are faithfully serving the Lord together in our state.
