MEET OUR PASTORS
PASTOR THOMAS & TANISHA FINLEY
Pastor Thomas became the lead pastor in 2019. Pastor Thomas & Pastor Tanisha serve as youth and young adult pastors at Fair Haven Church. The Lord led them back to Michigan in 2009 to pursue their passion: raising up a generation of God-fearing, student leaders. Pastor Thomas was born and raised in the projects of Detroit. He received Christ at a young age through Good News Gang inner city ministry. He grew into a young man in love with Christ, and left for North Central University (Minneapolis, MN). It was there that he met his wonderful wife, Tanisha.
After graduation from NCU, the Finley’s entered full-time ministry as youth pastors at a Minneapolis-area church where they developed a healthy and strong youth ministry.
They have 6 beautiful children: Talya, Thomas IV, Teah, Tirzah, Trinity and Titus.
