Pastor Justin Sterrett and his family come from northwest Ohio.  Justin grew up in Van Wert and his wife, Kelly, grew up in Payne.  


Justin and Kelly were married in 1998 and made their home in Payne.  The two of them have had various jobs and various ministries in the churches they have attended.  Most notably of the volunteer ministries were being youth leaders in two separate churches.  


They adopted their oldest son after getting involved in foster care, and eventually went on to have four biological children.  The couple also now has one grandson and one granddaughter.  


Newport Church is Justin's second senior pastor position. He was first pastor at the Mandale CCCU for four years. The couple enjoys serving in the Newport/London area and are excited to see what all the Lord has in store for the church in the years to come!


Pastor Ervin Baldwin has been ministering in the Newport/London area and beyond for many years.  While he has had the title of assistant pastor for 10-15 years, his ministry spans probably more than 30 years.  Pastor Ervin's ministry has included everything from driving van-loads of kids to church, starting and maintaining prison ministries, starting and maintaining nursing home ministries, countless funerals, and more. Pastor Ervin is truly a servant leader with a heart for pointing people to the one true Savior, Jesus Christ.
