My last name, Pierpont, is French and should not be confused with Pierpoint, Piedmont, or Peterpoint, all of which I’ve answered to at one time or another. I’ve been married to Carolyn for 25 years, we have eight children and I have been the pastor of Higgins Lake Baptist Church, Higgins Lake, Michigan since February 2003.
I like to run, bike, hike and weight lift, but most of all I really enjoy spending time with my family. Carolyn has homeschooled our eight children from the start. Carolyn also shares her photos of life in northern Michigan and takes great care of me.
I grew up in a pastor’s family and now I’ve been a pastor for many years. I also have a diverse background which includes, working in a dry cleaner, lawn mowing, camping ministry, doughnut making, cake baking, insulation installing, roofing, painting, computer systems management, insurance rating and coding, website development, and service as a U.S. Marine and as a Deputy Sheriff (whew!) — but not necessarily in that order.
I share here on the website sermon audio, quotes, pointers to helpful information for your family and the church, books I’m reading or recommending, or not, and more. All this I hope will be a help and encouragement to you in your walk with Christ.
