"My family and I came to EBC in February 2016, after serving for over 10 years in Southern Oregon in discipleship and teaching ministry. Along with my experience as an open-air evangelist and missionary, my heart is to see God glorified in everything, and for Christians to flourish underneath a Word-centered ministry. As the pastor at EBC, I try to lead and be an example of being a bold witness for Christ in every area I find myself in. Whether it be in the pulpit, or in front of our local abortion mill, or on the street corner, the truth of God must be proclaimed with love and faithfulness. I have been labeled by some as “intense”, but I know what Christ has done for me and the world, and being nonchalant or casual about matters of eternity, doesn’t seem very appropriate."
- Pastor John Smith
