Mike Spann – Lead Pastor
Pastor Mike Spann was born and raised in Mobile, Alabama and lived there the majority of his life. His parents raised him to be very active in his home church of Wilson Avenue Baptist in Saraland, Alabama from a young child through his early college years.
He felt the call of God on his life to go into the ministry and went off to Bible College at Tennessee Temple University in the fall of 1997. On September 3, 1998, he realized that he had been playing the game as a Christian. It was a God sent revival at Highland Park Baptist Church that day, and he remembers what the evangelist said, “Some of you are playing the game and it’s time to get saved.” Well, it was during that service at the altar call that he got up from his seat, went forward, and got things settled with God. Ever since then he has had a peace and joy that can only come from God.
Pastor Mike graduated from Tennessee Temple University in May of 2001. God called him to serve at Trinity Baptist Church in Findlay, OH, August of 2001 as their Youth Pastor, he served in that position nine years before the church called him as their pastor in August of 2010. He was called to pastor Bible Baptist Church in July of 2020. He has been blessed by the Lord with a beautiful wife Leigh Ann for 20 years in June. They have four lovely children Madelyn (17), Ryleigh (15), Colton (10), and Jordan (3).
