Bro. Heath & Mrs. Michelle Spivey //
Senior Pastor & Pastor's Wife
Pastor Spivey, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Clay Spivey, was saved at the age of 17. After being homeschooled, he worked as a bank teller while attending seminary. He received his bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies from Louisiana Baptist University. Since 2001, he has had the privilege to serve in ministry as youth director, music director, and as administrative pastor.
While serving as administrative pastor, the Lord began working in Pastor Spivey’s heart to begin pastoring. A year later, the Lord opened the doors and led Pastor and his family to Crossroads Baptist Church here in Fishersville, VA, where he serves as the Senior Pastor.
Pastor Spivey met his wife, Mrs. Michelle, at a Christian camp in Hillsville, VA. They were married on July 16, 2005. Mrs. Michelle heads up Ladies Ministry here at Crossroads; she actively councils, coordinates and helps in any and every way possible. Family, church and marriage demand alot; we give God the glory in knowing that Mrs. Michelle walks with God as she works behind the scenes to meet these demands and aid the health of the body of Christ here at Crossroads.
Pastor and Mrs. Michelle have two daughters, Kennedy and Kensley. They are the light of their lives. The Bible plainly states in 1 Timothy 3:15 that "if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?". Pastor Heath and Mrs. Michelle prioritize their children and their family above all else. The love they lead with at home spills over into their care of Crossroads!
Although Pastor loves the Eagles, the Red Sox and Tar Heels (yes, we are still adjusting to this also), he has always preached and believed that your love for the Lord should supersede your love of sports or anything else we enjoy or endeavour to do.
The Spiveys love the Lord and the people at Crossroads and are dedicated to serve as the Lord has called them to do. We look forward to what God has for the future growth at Crossroads Baptist Church!
