Richard Baxter


Richard Baxter and his wife, Tara, have been married since 2008 and are the parents of Hannah (3) and Noelle (3). They have been members of Brook Hills since 2009. Richard professed faith in Christ at the age of 18. He works as a pediatric dentist at Shelby Pediatric Dentistry. He currently leads a small group for families with young children, and Tara serves in Preschool Ministry. He considers his spiritual gifts to include teaching, leadership, and giving. Regarding his spiritual leadership in the home, Richard said, “As a parent, the spiritual formation of my children is my responsibility – not whether they are saved, as that is of God alone, but that they are exposed to biblical truth as much as possible, that they are nurtured in the faith, prayed for regularly, and that they are taught the Word every chance we get.”
