Devin Larsen

Associate Pastor

Pastor Devin is a 2001 graduate of Pillsbury Baptist Bible College in Owatonna, MN.  He graduated with a Pastoral Theology degree and holds a minor in counseling.  He met his bride Jenny while attending Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, Iowa.  They married in 1993 and have 5 children.  They currently live in Owatonna.

Pastor Devin and his family attended First Baptist Church in Faribault for 23 years, prior to being called as Associate and Youth Pastor at Grace Baptist Church in 2016.  While attending First Baptist, Devin served in many lay ministries including, youth leader, Deacon/Trustee, usher, and music ministries.  He also served as interim pastor for Deaf Lighthouse Baptist Fellowship, an extension of First Baptist, for 7 years. While serving in these capacities, Devin worked at 2 different factories in Owatonna for 11 years each.  During his time, he drove semi, operated a forklift, worked on a brake press and operated CNC equipment.

Devin has a passion for working with young people and helping them arm themselves with the Word of God so that they will be able to stand for faith in Christ in a world that seeks to destroy their faith.  He is also very involved in visitation and small group ministries.  He enjoys spending time with his wife and children, is an avid reader, and is currently pursuing his Master’s degree at Central Baptist Theological Seminary in Plymouth, MN.
