fyi: The History of Chesterton Southern Baptist Church

July 2019 will mark the 28th year since a Chesterton mission was started by Valparaiso Baptist Church in 1991. The mission officially became a church about one year later. Members named it Chesterton Southern Baptist Church.

Pastor Rick Henderson has led Chesterton Southern Baptist Church the entire time.

The building was built with much donated help in 1955 by the late Rev. James C. Mills. Other congregations met there between 1955 and 1991. But they each disbanded in their own time and the building was available when Chesterton Southern Baptist Church formed.

Worship Leader ...

  • This person leads in the glorifying of Christ through music
  • He also guides the service along through its various parts
  • He sits across from the pastor on Sundays
  • This position is commonly known as Song Leader

Deacon  ...

  • These godly and faithful men are not novices when it comes to faith in Christ

Trustee  ...

  • These people take care of the building and grounds
