Pastor Smith was born and raised in the Indianapolis, Indiana area. He trusted Christ as his Saviour as a second grader during a junior church service at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Indianapolis. It was not until his junior high and senior high school years that he really began to get serious about serving the Lord. Pastor Smith credits the influence of his youth pastor at Lighthouse Baptist Church in Indianapolis to be the reason he sought the Lord into full time ministry.
During his junior year of Bible college at Crown College of the Bible in Powell, Tennessee, Pastor Smith began dating his wife Rachel. They were married in December of 1999. The two of them have served the Lord together since that time. They have four children, Chloe, Abbie, Asher, and Justus.
Pastor Smith is passionate about helping other Christians learn to walk with the Lord in their daily lives and enjoys seeing this process take place. Since 2003 he has pastored 3 churches in Indiana, Alabama, and Ohio. He and his family are excited to be here at Tomah Baptist Church and look forward to seeing what God will do as they serve Him here.
