Eric Bryant

Eric Bryant grew up in Lincoln, Illinois. When he was in the first grade, his family started attending the State Street Baptist Church (now Park Meadows Baptist Church) under the leadership of Dr. S.M. Davis. In 1979, Eric’s father became the assistant pastor of the church and has been there ever since. When Eric was eight years old, he made a profession of faith. In 1985, he graduated from State Street Baptist Christian Academy. In 1988 he received a Bachelor of Science degree from Hyles-Anderson College, majoring in pastoral assistant and Christian school administration. In 1989, he received his Master of Education degree. He met his wife Sara at college, and they were married in 1990. Eric became an assistant pastor to Dr. Daniel Woodward in 1991 and became the principal of Dwight Baptist Academy in 1993. In 1996, Eric had some doubts about his salvation and received assurance of his salvation after a morning service.

Eric is thankful that he and his family are in a great church where they can serve the Lord. The Lord has blessed them with four children: Christa, Alissa, Janna, and Thomas.
