Pastor A.J. Potter came with his family to Pleasantville Baptist Church in September 2009. Pastor Potter grew up in Bear Lake, MI. His father was the Pastor of Lighthouse Baptist Church in Bear Lake. As a teenager, God called Pastor Potter to go into the full time ministry. The Lord led him to Fairhaven Baptist College in Chesterton, IN to continue and complete his educational training. Upon graduating in 2002 God called him to the ministry of the Ottumwa Baptist Temple. Late in 2008 the Lord began to work in his heart about going into the position of a full time Pastor. Following the leading of the Lord, Pastor Potter accepted the invitation by the members of Pleasantville Baptist Church in September of 2009 to become their Pastor.
