Our Team

Meet The Bay Point Staff

John Guerre

Lead Pastor

When God called me into the ministry at 10 years old I simply could not fathom that Jesus Christ himself would ask me to spend my life helping him build his church in such a way that the “gates of hell would never defeat it” (Matthew 16:18). Although I didn’t have a clue as to what it all meant, or would mean, I am so glad I embraced it because this has been the greatest adventure and pleasure of my life.

As a lead pastor, my greatest thrill is to see people come to Christ and grow in Christ. I love seeing people respond to God’s Word and becoming stronger in their faith. I love the love of the saints, the challenging questions of the seekers, and especially when people take Jesus Christ as their Lord/Savior – Leader/Forgiver for the very first time.

I truly have more passion and joy for the ministry today than I did when I first started. So come along with us and for God’s glory let’s build a great church together.
