Mike Foster
Role: Assistant Pastor

Pastor Mike Foster began serving at Ridgewood in September of 2005. Despite growing up just around the corner from the church and playing many hockey games in its parking lot, Mike would have never imagined working at RBC when he was younger. However, shortly after graduating from Newfane High School, Mike placed his faith in Jesus to save him after learning the gospel through a Campus Crusade for Christ ministry at Elmira College.  Within months of becoming a Christian, Mike had a hard time picturing himself doing anything other than full-time ministry for a career. As he came home that summer after his freshman year of college, he began attending Ridgewood Bible Church and met Pastor Jennings, who started discipling him. Pastor Mike eventually decided to follow in the footsteps of Pastor Jennings and attend Capital Bible Seminary. But, before he did, he finished his English Education degree at Elmira in 2002. And, most importantly, he married college classmate Meg in August of that year. While in seminary, the Fosters served at Forcey Memorial Church, where Mike directed the summer day camp for three years. Mike graduated from Capital with a Master's of Divinity in May of 2005 and accepted an invitation to minister at Ridgewood Bible Church around that time. By the time they arrived in Lockport, NY in September of 2005, Mike and Meg already had a 9-month-old son, Clay, and a baby girl due in February 2006! Pastor Mike currently works with the young adults (Crossroads), teens, and worship team at RBC. Meanwhile, in addition to helping Mike with just about everything imaginable, Meg enjoys life at home as a mom. Why Ridgewood Bible Church for the Fosters? Pastor Mike says he has always been captivated by the heartbeat of the church to maintain strong convictions while striving to do ministry in fresh, relevant ways.
