Baxter grew up on the South Side of Chicago in the Hyde Park neighborhood. He is an avid Chicago sports fan, and his first job was with the Chicago White Sox as an usher.
He completed his B.A. in Business / Economics at Wheaton College and worked in the asset management industry for over five years before pursuing a full-time program through the Charles Simeon Trust called “The Chicago Course on Preaching.” The summer of 2021, he joined College Church as High School Pastor. Baxter loves to preach God’s word to himself and to others.
Baxter is married to his best friend, Kelsie. They enjoy live music, exploring restaurants, lawn games, and laughing together with family, friends, and students. They have a deep love for those in their high school years and were transformed during their own high school years as part of the local church.
