FREDERICKTOWN — Fredericktown Free Will Baptist Church welcomed Matt Pond in early March as its associate pastor and youth director. Pond, his wife Laura, and their 4-year-old son Carter, live in Mansfield and are excited to be at the Fredericktown church.
“As our church continued to grow,” said Pastor Aaron Boggs, “it became evident that the heart of the church was geared towards providing solutions to bringing people to a relationship with Jesus. When it comes to the youth, it takes a rare mixture of personality, authority and Godly passion to be effective with the youth of today.”
Prior to accepting the position in Fredericktown, Pond was the pastor at Fairview Free Will Baptist in Utica. Pond, who started preaching when he was still in high school, was invited to church by a young woman who would become his wife. Laura is a registered nurse at MedCentral Community Hospital.
