Our Pastor



Our Pastor is the Rev. Dr. Tara Henderson. Pastor Tara's first service was August 20th, 2017. 


The Rev. Dr. Henderson comes to us from Centennial Colorado, where she was a Chaplain at a retirement living community. Rev. Dr. Henderson is a fully ordained American Baptist Churches minister, with her Doctorate in Divinity from Palmer Theological Seminary, in St. Davids, Pennsylvania. Prior to that, she was a National Staff member with the International Ministries ABCUSA, in Valley Forge, PA. She is well travelled, doing missionary work in Japan. Rev. Dr. Henderson has extensive experience in marriage and family life counseling, as well as children’s ministries, and ministries for the grieving, working with all age groups and situations.

   We are thrilled that God has sent us Rev. Dr. Tara Henderson, and has put her in our path, to lead the congregation with biblical sermons, a warm and welcoming personality, and using her experiences and gifts, to further glorify God and His works. We are honored to have Rev. Dr. Henderson lead First Baptist Church into its bicentennial celebration next year.
