A Word from Pastor Garber and his wife Andrea
Thank you for taking an interest in NorthSide Baptist Church. Our desire is to care for your spiritual needs. If you choose to walk through the doors of our friendly church you will find an environment designed for growth where God's Word is preached, Christ-honoring music is sung, and love for one another is expressed. My wife and I invite you to come see what God is doing at NorthSide Baptist Church!
I was born in May of 1980 in West Virginia. At five years of age I was saved during an elementary Bible class at Heritage Christian Academy. I grew up attending Second Baptist Church in Ravenswood, WV where I was called to preach at sixteen years of age. Upon graduating high school, God led me to Crown College in Powell, TN where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Biblical Studies with a major in Pastoral Theology. I finished my formal education in May of 2003 with a Master of Ministry degree. In June of 2004 God called me to serve as a Youth Pastor at the Second Baptist Church in Festus, MO. There I gained experience in the ministry by being involved in many diverse ministries of the church. In April of 2008 God led me to assume the Associate Pastor's position at Hillcrest Baptist Church in El Paso, TX where I gained experience working with the military families of Fort Bliss. In June of 2015 God called me to Pastor the wonderful folks of NorthSide Baptist Church.
Apart from salvation, the greatest thing that ever happened to me was getting to marry Andrea and to start a family. We have four children with our oldest being born in 2003 and our youngest being born in 2014. Together, we are trying to raise our children to follow God's will. We are so thankful for a caring church family that helps us teach our children about the Lord.
