ALTON — Brown Street Baptist Church welcomes Aaron Love as the new senior pastor of the church.
Aaron and Elizabeth Love accepted the call to serve at the church in June 2014. Since that time, the church has been anticipating and preparing for their arrival.
The Loves come to the church from Monroe Baptist Church in Monroe, Wash. Love previously served as the youth and children’s pastor at Monroe Baptist. He received bachelor’s and master’s degrees in biblical studies from Maranatha Baptist University in Watertown, Wis., as well as a partial masters of divinity from Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary in Allen Park, Mich.
The church installed Love as its new senior pastor on Sept. 14 with a special day of services. Pastor the Rev. Bernie Augsburger, state representative of the IL-MO Association of Regular Baptist Churches, and Pastor Love’s father, Pastor Mark Love of Colchester Bible Baptist Church in Colchester, Conn., were both on hand to encourage and challenge the Loves in their new ministry at BSBC. The church also hosted a luncheon to celebrate the occasion.
“I am excited about serving the Lord as the pastor of Brown Street Baptist Church,” Aaron Love said. “My desire is to encourage, edify, and assist others in becoming more like Christ to the glory of God.”
The church is pleased to recognize Love as its next senior pastor. This is a new chapter in the church history, and they look forward to what the future holds for the church and their new pastor.
