Pastor E. will bring us a powerful message to go along with our conference theme based off of Proverbs 4:25 "Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you." There are so many things that take our eyes off of God and pull us away from our Christian values and desires! We will open our hearts and our minds to the message Pastor E. will bring as we "Refocus".
Pastor Eric Walker is Senior Pastor of Franklin Community Church in Franklin Ky. He was born in St. Paul Minnesota and raised in South Bend, Indiana. In 1999 He moved with his family to Bowling Green Ky And it was there; when God radically changed his life. He truly believes with all his heart that God is still in the transforming business.
