Welcome! We hope you will find a ministry opportunity, activity, or something that will interest you to be part of what God is doing at South Run and that you will visit us in person.
Eric J. Gilchrest, Senior Pastor (effective August 13, 2017). My passion for God’s word led me to earn a Ph.D. in New Testament from Baylor University. I was formerly the Department Head and Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Judson College where I prepared students for a life of ministry and provided vision and leadership to the department. I believe God is moving me toward full-time ministry in the local church and in July of 2015, I was ordained for ministry and began serving as the senior pastor of a Baptist church in Uniontown, Alabama. As a result of that work, I have sensed a call away from academia and into full-time church ministry where I believe God will use my training and giftings in a different but related context.
