Pastor Les Sutherland
Senior Pastor

Les Sutherland has pastored Faith Bible Fellowship Church since its founding in the 1980's. Due to his future wife's willingness to share the Gospel (her first witnessing project in years past), Les received Christ on August 26, 1970.

Pastor Les attended and graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1972. While spending several years as a design engineer at Ford Motor Company (1972-1975), Les also served in the U.S. Army Reserves (1972-1977). In 1975, Les expanded his education at Trinity Divinity School through 1979 in pursuit of his Masters of Divinity degree. After graduation, he served as interim pastor at Libertyville Evangelical Free Church and as associate pastor at Cuyahoga Falls Baptist Church (in the greater Akron area). From there, he was called to serve as pastor of Faith Bible Fellowship and has faithfully served there since. Also, Pastor Les has taught Moody Evening School in the local area since 1981.

Pastor Les and his wife Linda have four sons: Jeffrey (Dani, Emily, Lucy), Christopher, Joshua, and Timothy. He also currently serves as a member of the Elder board at FBF.
