Senior Pastor David Stertzbach

Having been a Senior Pastor for over forty years, Pastor David Stertzbach has served at Bethel Baptist since 2006. Previously he labored in churches in Vermont, Illinois, & Mississippi. He is known as a man with a shepherd’s heart that truly cares for the sheep.

He & his college sweetheart, the former Diane Bundy from Plymouth, Michigan, have been married for forty-five years with three sons who are married & have children. Seven grand-children grace their family. Two of the Stertzbach boys are in fulltime ministry.

Pastor & Diane love foreign missions & have been to twenty-seven countries on mission trips. That international experience has given them a profound love for the people of the world who need the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

“Making Servants for the Savior” is the motto of his ministry as he pours himself into others particularly those who are serious about spiritual things for the Lord. He often says that he is here to help people go from where they are to where God wants them to be. And he would love to encourage you on your journey there too!
