Born and raised in Novi, MI, Pastor Tom is a true Michigander. He grew up in a Catholic home. He came to know Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior when he was 18 years old, through the witness of a friend and neighbor. He became active in a Baptist church as a young adult and was ordained as a deacon in 1992. He faithfully served the Lord in his church in a volunteer capacity until he sensed God’s calling to vocational ministry. He left a career with a design and manufacturing firm to attend Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. After completing his degree, he returned to Michigan to serve as a pastor. He has remained in Michigan all but a few years when he served as Discipleship Pastor at First Baptist Church of Farmington, New Mexico.

He met and dated his wife Teresa while living in Novi and they were married in 1989. Terisa is a stay at home mom who loves home schooling their children, crafting, photography and social media.  Pastor Tom and Terisa have three children. Rachel is a college student at Colorado Christian University, Tommy is in middle school and Josh is in elementary school. 

Pastor Tom enjoys spending time with his family, fishing, reading, movie nights and mentoring men.

Associate Pastor of Student Minitries

John Babri

Send Email

John Babri is slated to join our ministry team in January of 2017.  

John came to know Christ from atheism as a senior in high school. Jesus radically transformed John’s life giving him purpose, meaning, and a personal relationship with his creator. God called John to ministry while attending college at Kent State University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Applied Conflict Management. Following college John attended the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he graduated with a Masters of Divinity degree. During John’s time in seminary, he met his wife Katherine. Katherine was formerly a missionary in Thailand and John is quick to point out that Katherine is his better half. John and Katherine were married in January 2, 2010 and about 4 years later their smart, handsome, and fun son Cyrus was born. 

Some of John’s ministry experience includes being a full-time Pastoral Intern leading the youth and children’s ministries at his home church in northeast Ohio and being a Young Adult Pastor in southern Indiana. John is excited to serve as Associate Pastor at Fellowship Baptist Church and excited to help students become fully formed disciples of Christ! John coming to Christ as a senior in high school gives him a passion for helping students walk with Christ.

John’s favorite thing to do in his free time is spend time with his family. He enjoys cheering for the Ohio State Buckeyes (please don’t hold that against him). John even admits to having a bit of a geeky side and enjoys anything superhero related.

Worship Leader

Trevor Liverpool

Send Email

Since March 2016, Trevor Liverpool has been the worship leader for Fellowship Baptist Church. He is a native of (British) Guyana in South America, immigrated to the US in 1991, and now serves as a US Army officer.

In addition to vocals, Trevor is most proficient at drums and song writing. Prior to coming to Fellowship Church, he served as a cast member for the internationally touring US Army Soldier Show, as an interim worship leader at Westside Baptist Church (Waynesville, MO), worship leader at Altar of Praise Family Church in Springfield, MO, and at East Tucson Baptist Church in Arizona.

When Darla and Trevor met, they were a match made in heaven! Their seemingly chance meeting was ordained by God’s hand and they were married 69 days later. They now have two beautiful children, Jada and Gideon and live in Saline, MI.

Years ago, Trevor and Darla formed a Christian music duo known as ToryCreek. Their music has taken them across America from the most intimate small venues to churches of all sizes to numerous other worship settings. As ToryCreek, Trevor and Darla write and perform original music in addition to singing cover arrangements for many contemporary songs. They are committed to sharing the gospel of Christ in song and will most likely say “yes” to any invitation to appear.
