Pastor Justin Wheadon, was born in Miles City, Montana, on November 3, 1981. He has two sisters born in Miles City as well. He grew up attending the Four-Square Church in Miles City, until his parents decided that he and his sisters needed to become more involved in the 3-in-1 youth program at Grace Bible Church; this is where his journey with Christ began.
During his Sophomore year in High School, in Rosebud Montana in 1998 he met his future wife, Shawna, whom he married in Grace Bible Church, on September 14th, 2001. They have since welcomed two sons, Austin who was born April 2nd, 2003, and Cody, born January 10th, 2005. Both children were dedicated to the Lord shortly after their birth and have since given their lives to the Lord and have been Baptized.
Justin’s first calling to Ministry was as simple as teaching the 5th and 6th grade Sunday school class at Grace Bible Church, which led him to teach a small group bible study in his home. He began taking college level classes through the church and spoke to the associate Pastor who was teaching the class about where he should begin his educational journey in ministry, which he began in 2007 through Moody Bible Institute in Chicago.
Currently Justin holds an Associates and Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies from Moody Bible Institute. Since being called to ministry, he has held positions as a youth pastor in both Grace Bible Church in Forsyth and Miles City, Montana, as well as Visitation Pastor in Miles City. Through these positions within God’s ministry he has been led here to Winner, South Dakota as Senior Pastor of your First Baptist Church.
