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. My wife Carolyn and I have one daughter, seven sons and two lovely daughters-in-law. 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 enjoy spending time with my family. Carolyn has homeschooled our children from the start. She also shares her photos of life in northern Michigan.
I grew up in a pastor’s family and have been a pastor myself for many years. I also have a diverse background which includes, working at 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.
