Pastor John Herdman
In January 2014, the Lord directed John Herdman to accept the call to pastor Grace Baptist Church after serving on church staff at Franklin Road Baptist Church in Murfreesboro, TN for twelve years.
Pastor Herdman was born in West Virginia and calls Ripley, West Virginia home. He and his wife Amy have been married for 25 years. God has blessed their home with three children—Jared, Madeline, and Allison. Pastor Herdman has served at churches in West Virginia, Iowa, and Tennessee, and he has a burden for his family to be used to see people saved and the church strengthened. John and Amy are excited to serve the people at Grace Baptist Church and the city of Delaware.
