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. 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 was recently married to Kayla Thornton, whose family faithfully serves at Eastside, and they serve together on the staff at Shadow Mountain Baptist Church in Morgan Hills, California. Dave serves as an assistant pastor and Kayla teaches in their Christian school. The Foxes’ daughter Davina is in Bible college and their youngest son Dalton is in high school.
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.
“I give God all the glory for His blessings at Eastside Baptist Church over the past 16 years! It is truly a joy and privilege to serve the precious people of Eastside and I am so thankful that God has led our family to serve here since June of 2001! I am looking forward to what God has in store as we strive “to know Christ, and make Him known” in Greeneville, Tennessee and around the world! Please come see for yourself all the good things that God is doing at EBC! ” – Pastor Fox
