Pastor Ervin Smith and His Wife Mrs. Jackie Smith
Our world is one of complexity and diversity. Present world conditions, as well as the trends of society, demand that the church be a powerful witness to the person of Jesus Christ. In an age of vacillating value systems, Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. It is this simple, yet profound, message that we claim.
Pastor Ervin is committed to a family-oriented ministry. Our Worship Celebrations are characterized by contemporary praise and worship, intercessory prayer, and powerful preaching, along with the manifestation of the gifts of the Spirit.
Our Pastor Ervin was not raised in a Christian home, but as a child, he did attend a local church whenever possible. He accepted the Lord as his personal Savior at the young age of 20 outside a hospital room where his mother was dying. He responded to the Lords call into the ministry and immediately pursued Bible college.
Pastor Ervin has been in the ministry for over 45 years. He graduated from Southeastern College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Church Ministries with a concentration in Pastoral Ministry and a minor in Bible Theology. He has served as Senior Pastor of 5 churches throughout his ministry. He taught many courses in the School of Ministries (Teamwork Ministries) for over 4 years.
Pastor Ervin teaches the Word with a practical simplicity that is essential for daily living. Through his teaching he helps the believer learn how to live a victorious life of faith in God. His knowledge and understanding of the Word is in-measurable. His heart and passion to pastor and care for people is evident.In September, 2005, Pastor Ervin founded The Gathering and with a small group of people began with what is now a glorious and powerful church for the Kingdom of God!
