Vision & History of GHBC

Glen Haven Baptist Church was organized in 1947 as a conservative Southern Baptist Church. For over 60 years, the church has been uncompromising in its belief in the inerrancy of the Bible and salvation througth faith in Jesus Christ alone. Our church was founded by Randy Hardeman, who served as our Pastor for 36 years. Our Pastor Emeritus, Ralph Easterwood, began attending Glen Haven as a 12 year old boy. Here, he met his future wife, Gwendolyn Garrison. They fell in love, married, and have spent their lives in partnership in the ministry at Glen Haven. They have been an example of a loving couple who are committed to God and to each other.

Senior Pastor Stan Berrong is leading Glen Haven into the future.  He is a graduate of Liberty University, and has served as a Senior Pastor in Ft Myers, FL, as well as, serving in Virginia while at Liberty.  Pastor Stan served on the staff of Glen Haven in various roles from 1986 to August 2010, when he became the Senior Pastor.  Through his dependence on God, the hard work of our staff, and support of our church members he continues to lead our church to reach this Henry County community. Our Ministerial staff includes Executive Pastor Mike Creasman, Pastor of Families and Students, Warren Green, Pastor of Student Ministries, Brady Howard, Director of Music Ministries, Angela Skelton, and Director of Children's Ministries, Kelley Myers.
