Our Pastor

John Fry


Pastor - Grace Missionary Baptist Church
of Ceredo, West Virginia

John Fry

Brother John Fry has been the pastor of Grace Missionary Baptist Church since March of 2008. Before then he was a member of the Big Creek Baptist Church in Wayne, West Virginia. John was saved by the grace of God at the age of 8 and was baptized in Twelvepole Creek by Brother Doyle Thomas the then current pastor of Big Creek.

Brother John was instructed by several wonderful pastors in his years at Big Creek: Doyle Thomas, Mike Channel, George Sherman, Clyde Hancock and Matthew Stepp. It was Clyde Hancock though who seemed to recognize first that God had more in store for John than just sitting on the pew. He began to ask him to fill in teaching while he was away and John began to feel the pressing of the Holy Spirit to preach.

During a Homecoming service in 2007 at Big Creek, Brother John was teaching the adult Sunday School class on the subject of the great homecoming to come when his heart was overwhelmed to the point he no longer could resist the urge to preach.

Big Creek authorized Brother John to preach the following Wednesday night following his first “official” sermon. Most though said he had been preaching for a long time and just called it teaching. From that moment on, he began to supply several different pulpits of churches that were in need.

One of those churches was the Grace Missionary Baptist Church. He preached for them the month of December 2007. He remembers of how he felt at home the first time he ever preached here at the church. In January the church here at Grace voted unanimously to extend the call to Brother Fry to pastor the church. He accepted the call shortly after and has been preaching the glorious gospel of Christ here at the church ever since.

John is married to his wife Heather and has two children, Austin and Sara. He also is a chiropractor practicing in Lavalette, West Virginia. He loves being a chiropractor and “it pays the bills”, but his true passion is preaching the Word of God.
