DSC 0023Monte Baugh is married to a wonderful wife, Deborah, since1979.  They have raised three children: Dia, Monte, and Erin.  Regarding their children, Monte says, "Very few experiences in life can compare to the blessing of three grown children who deeply love the Lord."  To that end, Monte has been called as a shepherd at Westgate and is passionate about sharing his experience with Jesus and inviting others deeper into their own personal walk with our Lord.

Vocationally, Monte has been employed with the Honeywell Corporation for over 3 decades as a technician.  Monte and Deborah have traveled extensively with and without their children.  They enjoy outdoor recreational activities like canoeing, camping, fishing and hunting.  In fact Monte is the only person we know who has ever killed a turkey with the barrel of his shotgun in self-defense.

Monte is a very prayerful man and is well suited to guide our Care & Prayer ministries at Westgate.  He has served as a mentor both formally and informally to many young men.  Monte is especially gifted inmontefamily one-on-one ministry and seeks opportunity to pray with many who are placed in his path.  As the apostle Paul would explain, Monte's purpose is that we all know the, "glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory" (Colossians 1:27).
