Brett Foster, SAYSF Elder

While still an unbeliever, the Lord drew me to Southern Maryland in 1997 to attend the U.S. Naval Test Pilot School as a navy pilot. After many Christian classmates prayed for me, and many SAYSF people shared with me, I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ in 1999.

I met Pastor T. Davidson during Test Pilot School and he showed me special kindness and confidence. He and many others at SAYSF discipled me and helped grow in my relationship with Christ. One of them is now my wife, Terrie.

The Lord took us to Florida and California with the Navy for further discipleship before returning us to Patuxent River in 2006. I retired from the Navy in 2009 and communicated to the SAYSF Elders what I believed was God’s leading for me to enter the pastoral ministry.

With their mentorship, I have been privileged to serve the SAYSF family as an elder these past few years.

I’m an active member of the deacons team, preach and teach Sunday School on occasion. My wife and I led the nursery ministry for many years. We sometimes host small group in our home. We are also active in homeschooling our four children.
