Pastor Eric Mason
While at Bowie State University, he was burdened after trusting Christ to go into full-time vocational service to the Lord in ministry. During the completion of his undergraduate degree, he taught bible studies on campus to the college students. Seeking to be a biblically literate minister of the gospel, Eric ventured to Dallas Theological Seminary where he received a Master of Theology degree. Meanwhile, Eric was hired by an inner-city organization as a counselor and mentor to “at risk” in the Southern and Eastern sectors of Dallas Texas.
The context of this service was several community centers, High schools, and apartment complexes discipling troubled youth and former gang members. He was co-youth pastor and then as prison ministry coordinator at Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship. Upon completion of Seminary, Eric received his ordination into the gospel ministry by the counsel of elders at Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship. Eric ventured to Houston, TX to serve functionally in the role of Assistant Pastor of Good Hope Missionary Baptist Church. In addition, he served also as adjunct professor at the College of Biblical Studies.
Eric then was called to serve as the Regional Director of the Urban Schools Alternative at Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship. Upon receiving the call to Philly, Fellowship Bible Church in Little Rock, AR offered to train him in leadership and church planting. After a year of sitting under the elder’s tutelage, they affirm upon him through the laying on of hands and commissioned him to the work of church planting. He completed his Doctoral degree at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (In Ministry In Complex Urban Settings) May 2007.
Eric now resides in Philadelphia, Pa with his wife Yvette and their son Immanuel. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
