Meet the Pastor
Hello, I hope this letter finds you well. I would like to introduce myself. My name is James Siekbert Jr. I am the pastor of Chippewa Lake Baptist Church. I am the second of 7 children born to Jim and Judy Siekbert in Cincinnati, Ohio. Growing up in Milford, Ohio my family attended the First Baptist Church where Dr. Charles Keen was Pastor. I received Jesus Christ as my Saviour there as a young person and surrendered to preach as a teen. God used the messages, the opportunities for service, the missions emphasis and Bible printing emphasis to greatly influence my life. I attended Tennessee Temple University and learned under the ministry of Dr. Lee Roberson where I further grew in the Lord. I married my wife, Debbie in 1981. We have been married for 30 years in June. We have 4 daughters and 2 sons, two son-in-laws and 3 grandsons! I have pastored at CLBC for nearly 22 years. We are a friendly church located 4.5 miles south of Medina Square. We are a church that believes in the transforming power of Jesus Christ and we are a church that believes in the power of God’s word.
I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to worship with us. Whether you are a new follower of Christ, a Christian looking for a loving church home or just curious about the Jesus of the Bible, we would love to have you visit us! Our church is a church of diversity; families, single parents, college and career age, teenagers, children and the list goes on, but we are all one family that worships God together. The worship service is excited yet, God-pleasing. Whether is be our Kids for Christ for k4-6th grade, or maybe the Youth Ministry for all 7th – 12th grade or even the Solid Rockers group for mature adults, there is certainly a place for you and your family to experience the love of Jesus.
It would be our greatest pleasure if you honored us with a visit. Please feel free to drop by for ANY service. I know that if you give us a visit, you will find that God is truly Touching Hearts and Changing Lives at Chippewa Lake Baptist Church.
Pastor James R. Siekbert, Jr.
