Pastor Steve Foster
Pastor Steve Foster was born in 1965, and was raised in North Florida by hard working, Christian parents, who were very involved in their local Baptist Church. At age 18 he moved to Texas and enrolled in Bible College, where he met his wife, Dori. The Lord has blessed them with four children who love and continue to serve Christ. Colt and his wife Shalyse serve on staff and he is continuing his training towards the pastoral ministry. Kortney and her husband Andrew serve faithfully in the church. Kelsey and Kacilyn are continuing their professional education and also serve faithfully in the church. The family is a tremendous blessing from the Lord and bless the Lord often with special music.
Pastor Foster joined the staff in 1988 and took the church as Pastor in 1993. He is a faithful servant of God who is confident in his call and ministry. Under his leadership, New Heights has followed Pastor Foster through many trials and great endeavors for the work of God. New Heights is thankful to call Steve Foster, “Pastor.”
Colt Foster – Youth/Music Director
Colt Foster grew up here at New Heights Baptist Church. He was saved at the age of 7 and baptized shortly thereafter. He surrendered to preach at Church Camp the summer after his senior year of high school. After staying home a year to save money, he enrolled at Heartland Baptist Bible College with a pastoral major. During his time there, he met his wife Shalyse. Colt and Shalyse graduated together in May of 2018. They married in June of the same year and joined the staff of NHBC the same month. They now have one beautiful daughter, Rinlee.
We look forward to ministering to those who enter the doors of New Heights Baptist Church and to get the Gospel to those without!
Nick Tallarita – Staff Intern
Nick was born in a suburb just south of Chicago, and raised in church at Sauk Trail Baptist Temple. At the age of five he was saved at a preacher’s meeting and baptized shortly after. After High School, Nick worked for four years before enrolling in Heartland Baptist Bible College with a Pastoral major. It was there that Nick met his wife, Aleah, and the two were married after graduation. The Lord led them to work at Bellevue Baptist Church in Washington State, and now to New Heights Baptist Church in Texas. Nick is working as a church planting intern, working and preparing to plant churches in the future. They have one son Grayson who constantly keeps them on their toes.
We are excited to serve here at New Heights and see God’s hand working through his church, to start other churches, to spread the Gospel. We are privileged to be a part of that here at New Heights.
Joseph Raub – Staff Intern
