Born and raised in Novi, MI, Pastor Tom is a true Michigander. He grew up in a Catholic home. He came to know Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior when he was 18 years old, through the witness of a friend and neighbor. He became active in a Baptist church as a young adult and was ordained as a deacon in 1992. He faithfully served the Lord in his church in a volunteer capacity until he sensed God’s calling to vocational ministry. He left a career with a design and manufacturing firm to attend Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. After completing his degree, he returned to Michigan to serve as a pastor. He has remained in Michigan all but a few years when he served as Discipleship Pastor at First Baptist Church of Farmington, New Mexico.

Associate Pastor of Student Ministries

John Babri

Send Email

John came to know Christ from atheism as a senior in high school. Jesus radically transformed John’s life giving him purpose, meaning, and a personal relationship with his creator. God called John to ministry while attending college at Kent State University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Applied Conflict Management. Following college, John attended the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he graduated with a Masters of Divinity degree. During John’s time in seminary, he met his wife Katherine. Katherine was formerly a missionary in Thailand and John is quick to point out that Katherine is his better half. John and Katherine have two young children. 

Some of John’s ministry experience includes being a full-time Pastoral Intern leading the youth and children’s ministries at his home church in northeast Ohio and being a Young Adult Pastor in southern Indiana. John is excited to serve as Associate Pastor at Fellowship Baptist Church and excited to help students become fully formed disciples of Christ! John coming to Christ as a senior in high school gives him a passion for helping students walk with Christ.

John’s favorite thing to do in his free time is spending time with his family. He enjoys cheering for the Ohio State Buckeyes (please don’t hold that against him). John even admits to having a bit of a geeky side and enjoys anything superhero related.
