In the year 2000, Pastor Harrison came to Manitowoc at the request of another church to help with a Vacation Bible School. That week was a life-changing event and produced a calling from God into the ministry. At that time, Pastor Harrison had been a volunteer youth pastor for 7 years in his home church. The circumstances and calling of God were unmistakable to his church family, friends, and the pastors involved. In preparation for the pastorate in Manitowoc, Pastor Harrison was ordained and sent from his own church to Manitowoc in 2001.
Open Bible Baptist Church is an independent Baptist church in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. The pastor is Roger Harrison.
