Eric Thomas



Eric is originally from Leivasy, West Virginia, almost an hour away from Sutton. He was a graduate of Richwood High School and was active in church and extracurricular sports. From a young age he felt that God had a special calling on his life to go into ministry. At 16 he first expressed his desire to go into ministry.

Eric would serve in various leadership roles within his church and parachurch organizations before going to Bible College. Eric attended Liberty University in Lynchburg , Va where he graduated in 2013 with his Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral Leadership with a Minor in Greek. During this time he would serve in various ministries such as Campus Leadership, Campus Serve, & at Camp Cowen. Eric would go on to Seminary and would graduate from Liberty School of Divinity in 2019 with a Master of Divinity with an emphasis in Pastoral Counseling. During this time, he would serve as a Graduate Assistant in Evangelism, Youth Pastor at Bethlehem Baptist Church, and graduate assistant in the Campus Pastors office.

Eric was blessed to meet the love of his life Meredith while in Seminary. They were married June 1,2019.  They love being together and going on adventures together. Their favorite hobby is going to theme parks together. 

Eric’s goal in ministry is the glory of God. Eric wants to accomplish this goal through first having a personal relationship with Jesus. Secondly, he wants to love his wife like Christ loved the Church. Finally, he wants to equip the Church to know who God is, to grow in relationship with God, and to be on mission in making disciples.
