Our Church Leadership
Dr. Marty Herron
On July 30, 2000, Dr. Marty Herron arrived with his family to fulfill his new duties as pastor of Harvest Baptist Church. For the previous eighteen years he had served at Northland Baptist Bible College in Dunbar, Wisconsin, as Camp Director and eventually as vice president. In preparation for full-time ministry, he first attended Western Baptist Bible College. Then he traveled with the Life Action Revival Ministry. Afterwards, he completed a B.A. in church ministries with a minor in speech at Bob Jones University.
He first came to Guam in September 1999 as a Spirit Week speaker to replace his colleague Dr. Sam Horn. During that week he and his wife got a burden for the people of Guam and Micronesia. He also saw the value of being involved in a pastorate. In January of the following year, after he returned to Harvest Baptist Church to candidate, the church voted to call him as senior pastor. His desire as he shepherds the congregation is to help people develop a heart for God.
His wife, Tami, had also been involved in Life Action Revival Ministries. During their years at Northland, she taught several Bible and Christian service classes as well as reared their four children, Megan, Misty, Micah and Miles.

Pastor Bryan Lenartz
Children's Ministry Pastor / Outreach
Bryan was raised in Waukesha, Wisconsin, just outside of Milwaukee. Growing up, he had never heard the Gospel, and it was not until he was fifteen that he first heard the truth. While coming home from his little brother’s baptism at a Catholic Church, Bryan’s brother-in-law, David, shared with him how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Soon after, Bryan accepted the Lord as his Savior. He was discipled by John Zimmer, who currently serves as a missionary on the Island of Palau. Bryan met his wife Amy while serving in Guam, and the two were married in 2010. They are the parents of three girls. Bryan helps lead the event and adult ministries of Harvest Baptist Church both on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. Throughout the week, Bryan works with the students of Harvest Christian Academy in Life Skills classes while Amy works in the school nurse's office and in the community as a physician's assistant.
