Pastor Ray Rouse


I received Christ as my personal Savior at the age of 6 when my Sunday School teacher led me to Christ, and I later followed the Lord in believer’s baptism.  I went on to graduate from Baptist Bible College in Pennsylvania in 1970 and then immediately began working as a full-time pastor.  When you come to hear me preach or listen to my messages, you’ll find an expository emphasis with a practical and evangelistic application of God’s Word.  My years of growing up in an orphanage and various foster homes has given me a compassion for people and a love for God’s work in their lives.

Serving as the senior pastor of Spring Hill Baptist Church for thirty-two years has been a true blessing.  My wife Linda and I have been able to raise our three children here and have seen them grow to to be married, raising families of their own, and serving the Lord.  Our time at SHBC has been full of experiences of wonderful growth and joy.

Life Verse: I Samuel 12:24 – Only fear the Lord, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.
