After months of prayerful consideration, the Pastor Nominating Committee unanimously voted to call the Reverend Dr. Ernie Thompson to Westminster Presbyterian as our Senior Pastor/Head of Staff. On Oct. 4th, following congregational meetings at the Lake Brandt and Friendly campuses, the congregation agreed with the recommendation and voted to accept the terms of call for Ernie. God truly blessed us and guided this process from the beginning.
Ernie comes to Westminster with over 27 years of experience. His most recent call was at First Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, NC, where he led that congregation for the last 15 years. During his tenure in Wilmington, the church welcomed 800 new members, renewed its relationship with the Christian Church in China and successfully completed two capital campaigns.
Ernie and his wife, Elaine, have two children: Megan, 24 and Richard, 21. For more information on Ernie, please take a look at the informational brochure. You also can watch a short conversation with Ernie here.
Please join us in welcoming Ernie and his family into our community of faith on December 6th. We greatly appreciated your prayers over the last seven months.
