Clint Henry (Lead Pastor)

Pastor Clint and his family moved to Idaho back in March of 1995. Central Valley Baptist Church was located on Cherry Lane back then, and went by the name of Cherry Lane Baptist Church. Prior to coming here Clint and his wife Jeannette served as missionaries planting churches in the Midwest. Clint also pastored a church in Texas during the years of his seminary training at Southwestern Baptist in Fort Worth. 

Clint was licensed to preach the gospel and later ordained at First Baptist Church of Canyon, Texas. One of his passions is the preaching of God’s Word and it’s application in our lives. Clint and his wife Jeannette met while attending college. They have four grown daughters of which three are adopted and eight granddaughters. Jeannette is also involved in ministry at our church and is the Women’s Discipleship Leader. Her passions are Bible Study and mentoring women.

Clint and Jeannette love the state of Idaho and the challenge of church work in an area that is heavily influenced by a non-Christian religion. Both plan on a long ministry at Central Valley, and are well on their way to prove it. Clint’s favorite hymn is “The Solid Rock.” His favorite contemporary song is “Jesus Messiah.” He loves to play with his granddaughters and camp and hike in the outdoors. His favorite Bible verse is John 3:30, “He (meaning Jesus) must increase, and I must decrease.” Jeannette loves to see Jesus work in women’s lives and set them free to be healed. She loves to mark her Bible up with colored pencils! She loves to read, walk, and drink iced tea.
