CONGRATULATIONS to Pastor Gene for his 10th year anniversary at ERBC (that's one decade, folks)! Gene has beat the average tenure of a Baptist Pastor by 8 years - at a boy, Gene!
I appreciate Gene's dedication to the Education Ministry (and ERBC in general) of ERBC these many years. More than this, I appreciate (and admire) Gene's desire to consider God in all points of life. Praise the Lord for Gene, Angie, Brett, Katie, Hannah, and Luke!
WELCOME to John, BJ, Avery, and Austin Freeman! I look forward to serving beside John and witnessing what the Lord will do through him. Let's pray for John and the family as they continue to acclimate to ERBC and the Greenville area.
WELL DONE, Pastor Eric! Thanks to Eric for almost eight years of meaningful Student Ministry. Let's pray for the Wootens as they move into a new season of ministry. I am excited to see where God will lead ERBC through Eric's new pastoral position.
In conclusion, I would like for the ERBC family to not forget the Pastoral Staff and Ministry Support Staff in prayer. Satan would love nothing more than to sift our families like wheat. Please pray that the Lord will protect us from discouragement, pride, envy, strife, laziness, and vain glory. May our Lord give us a greater desire to give HIM glory!
