Speech on Evangelism by Pastor Eric Watkins.
March 1 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm| Free
You are invited to join us for a speech on evangelism by Pastor Eric Watkins.
Eric Watkins grew up in a non-Christian military home in North Carolina. His teenage years were dark and dangerous, clearly preserved by the grace of God. He came to Christ at age 21, ironically while following the Grateful Dead around the country. At the end of a long, strange trip, someone gave him a Bible to read, and in the pages of Scripture, he met the Lord Jesus Christ, who convicted him of his sins and comforted him with the gospel of grace. This began the hard process of learning how to read the Bible and how to live what it teaches—a process which ultimately led to falling in love with the Reformed faith.
Eric Watkins is the pastor of Covenant Presbyterian Church in St. Augustine, FL. He has been a minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church since 2001 and has planted two churches, including Covenant, where he has now served since 2007. His degrees include an A.A., B.S., M.Div. and ThM. In 2016 he completed his PhD from the Theological University in Kampen, the Netherlands. His dissertation was on preaching Christ from the Old Testament in a postmodern context, and was published as The Drama of Preaching: Participating With God in the History of Redemption by Wipf and Stock. Pastor Eric has taught at Reformation Bible College in Sanford, FL, Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, FL, and currently teaches preaching courses at Gordon Conwell Seminary in Jacksonville, FL. He is married to Heather; the two of them have four beautiful, adopted children. Eric’s pastimes include surfing, beach volleyball and playing guitar.
