|Eric Parker, Evangelist/Preacher|
At the Taylorsville Road church of Christ, you will find that sound preaching and teaching are held in high regard. This follows the pattern of the first century which was established by Jesus and exemplified by the early community of Christians (Matt. 4:23; 5:1-2; Acts 2:42; 20:7-11, 20).
Although these forms of proclamation may occur in any setting, our congregation sets aside a large portion of the Sunday worship assemblies to this act. You will find that the sermons are by no means flowery and watered-down. They are meant to challenge and inspire the spirit and mind of each person. They are prepared to engage the audience through the inspired Word of God and are not designed to be political, humanistic, charismatic, or secular in nature. Furthermore, each sermon and class is tailored to exactly fit the context in which the biblical text was originally written. This means all areas of context (e.g. historical, literary, socioeconomic, etc.) are considered and analyzed in order to properly handle the words of truth (2 Tim. 2:15).
The evangelist/preacher here at TR is Eric Parker. He is married to Olivia and has a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Literature. He recently joined the work here in February 2015. Previously, he has preached in Tampa, FL, Marion, IN, and Centreville, VA. Here is a message from Eric:
"I am thrilled to work with the saints at Taylorsville Road! You will find them to be truly devoted to the cause of Christ in all forms - doctrinal and practical. I pray that all in search of the Lord will be open to joining the brethren here in worship to the King of kings. If there is anything we can do to assist you in your own personal search, please contact us through this website. We are always desirous to study the Word of God with anyone in search of Jesus the Christ. God bless!"
