Pastor Eric Winstead

I have had the privilege of serving God in ministry since 2001 as pastor and hospice chaplain. I am passionate about teaching God’s word and teaching others how to study for themselves.


I married Kim, the woman God created for me in 1993. We have two beautiful daughters who are both married to Godly men. The Lord has also blessed us with ahandsome grandson. 


One of my favorite bible verses is Matthew 6:33, because it gives direction and the  promise of God’s blessing. “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” (NLT)

I spend my free time woodworking and also enjoy chasing the ball around the golf course.
