Pastor David Fox grew up in Harford County, Maryland, in the small town of Darlington. Shortly after receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior at age 21, Pastor Fox answered the Lord’s call to full-time ministry. His wife Robin accepted the Lord as Savior at age seven, and had the privilege of growing up in a godly pastor’s home.
The Foxes met while attending Bible College and were married in June of 1992. That same summer they moved to Gray, Tennessee where Pastor Fox served for nearly nine years as youth pastor of Buffalo Ridge Baptist Church. In June, 2001, he then followed the Lord’s call to pastor Eastside Baptist Church.
Pastor Fox and his family have a heartfelt love for the people of Eastside. They enjoy visiting, ministering, and spending time with church families as time allows. It is evident that Pastor Fox has a great compassion for souls and desires to help meet any need that arises.
God has faithfully blessed Eastside under Pastor Fox’s leadership. The church has experienced both numerical and spiritual growth plus major building renovations and expansions. God has called several families from Eastside to full-time ministry, and the missions program has more than doubled. To God be the glory!
Mrs. Fox oversees the Ladies’ Ministry, which offers all women in the church a chance to fellowship and grow together through various activities and ministries. She also serves as a member of the choir, orchestra, special music, and faithfully supports her husband as he leads the church. The Foxes’ oldest son Dave is currently in Bible College preparing for the ministry. Their daughter Davina is making plans to attend Bible College in the fall of 2016, while their youngest son Dalton is in junior high school. All three children are faithfully supportive and involved in various ministries of Eastside.
During times he is not busy at the church, Pastor Fox can be found spending time with his family or shooting hoops at the local YMCA. Mrs. Fox enjoys spending time with her family, sewing, reading, or playing her violin.
“My years at Eastside have been the most wonderful years of my life! I praise God for the privilege to serve as pastor of Eastside Baptist Church, and am truly blessed that He led me and my family here. These people are in my heart and it is a privilege to serve them and to serve with them. I look forward to serving many more years as pastor here. God is good!” – Pastor Fox
