Eric Beavers

Eric is one of those people who made the geographical error of being born outside the borders of the great state of North Carolina, but early on made it his priority to correct that mistake. He graduated from Baptist Bible College in Clarks Summit, PA with a degree in B.S. in Bible before spending 4 years in Minneapolis, MN working both as a Youth Pastor and a Music Pastor. He married the girl of his dreams on September 9, 2006 – and together they have been playing music and ministering together every opportunity they get. As God grew and expanded his roles in ministry, Eric decided to continue his education and graduated in May of 2012 with a M.A. in Counseling. He has seen a need in the church for pastors to be good counselors, and hopes his education will be of great value as he continues to pastor in the church. Eric, Lisa, their son Lincoln and their daughter Caroline live in Garner, NC, where Eric serves as the Lead Pastor for Hope Fellowship Church and Lisa works as “Super Mom”, as well as a Patient Coordinator at a local dental office. Together they enjoy being warm (dislike being cold), spending as much time as they can at the beach, playing music, watching tv & movies, running together, playing with their kids, and reading.
