On Sunday, June 30, 2013 the Forest Area Baptist Church of Marienville held a special Installation Service for their new senior pastor, Terry Hebert. The church had been seeking a new Pastor since October of 2012. The church is excited to have the Heberts here. They are getting settled in to the church parsonage and beginning to get acquainted with the community.
Terry grew up in Connecticut but in 1992 he moved to Columbus, OH where he began attending the Bible Baptist Church in Grove City, OH. It was there that he came to know Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour in July of 1996. Shortly after his salvation he met Jennifer and one year later they married. Jennifer grew up in Waynesboro, VA. The Heberts currently have two children; Hannah age 9 and Rachel age 7.
Terry worked for 15 years as an accountant but then in 2005 he felt God’s calling for him to go to a Bible College to receive a Biblical Education. He then enrolled at the Crown College of the Bible, in Powell, TN near Knoxville. While working full-time, undergoing two surgeries and having the premature birth of their second daughter, Terry was finally able to complete his degree. In May of 2013 he graduated with a Bachelor of Biblical Studies in Pastoral Ministry.
