The congregation of the First Baptist Church of Cedar Springs is rejoicing over the call of their new pastor, Pastor Robert P. Smith. Pastor Robert and his wife, Ronette, moved to Cedar Springs from Des Moines, Iowa, a few weeks ago and are settling into their new home just south of the city.
Pastor Smith will be installed as the 39th pastor of the church this Sunday, October 9, at the 10:45 a.m. service. During the service, former Interim Pastor Daniel Currie will issue a charge to Pastor Smith, and former Pastor Stan Mohr will issue a charge to the church.

Pastor Smith received his Master of Divinity from Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary in Allen Park, Michigan, in 1984, and his Bachelor of Arts from Tennessee Temple University in Chattanooga, Tenn. in 1980. He has pastored churches in southeast Michigan, but most recently pastored Grandview Baptist Church in Des Moines, Iowa. He pastored that church for 15-1/2 years.

Both Pastor Robert and Ronette grew up in the southeast area of Michigan. They have been married for 35 years. They have two married children and five grandchildren. Daughter Lauren and her husband David Ollila live in Allen Park, Michigan with their children Carson, Coleman and Cael. Son Colin and his wife Melissa live in Ankeny, Iowa with their children, Charlotte and Harrison.

Outside of the church, the Smiths enjoy cycling and golf.

Welcome to Cedar Springs, Pastor Robert and Ronette!
