Pastor Ben and Rachel Klaus are natives of the Midwest. After spending over four years ministering in beautiful Denver, Colorado, they sensed the Lord leading them back home to Michigan. Pastor Ben began serving as pastor of GBBC in January of 2013, and is delighted to be able to minister with the wonderful people here. He has a real vision to grow together with the people of God through the word of God, and reach the surrounding community with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Judd and Megan Bladine were both raised in ministry settings. Pastor Judd’s father served in the food services department at a Baptist Bible college, while Megan grew up in the home of a pastor. They met as counselors at Forest Glen Bible Camp in Nova Scotia, Canada, and were eventually married in July of 2012. They ministered at First Baptist Church of Troy, Michigan from 2012–2016, being primarily involved with the Junior High youth group. Pastor Judd was invited by GBBC to join as the assistant pastor in July of 2016 with the desire to aid Pastor Ben with the children’s ministries, to help disciple new Christians, and to share the gospel message with the people of Gibraltar.
