Eddy Curry
Minister of Education
What's your favorite hobby? EC - I like
working in my yard, landscaping, etc. I also like
painting in oil. I don't get to do much because of
the demands of my ministry but someday I will
have more time to enjoy. I really like any kind of
art project as well.
What's something you enjoy in your
ministry that you didn't expect when you
started? EC - Two areas that have come to be a
real part of my ministry is the Adoption and Foster
Care and the Marriage Enrichment. I would have
never dreamed that these two areas would be such
a big part of my ministry. I have a heart for and a
longing for helping people in these two areas.
If you could change anything in your past,
what would it be? EC - I don't know that I
would change anything. God has blessed me in
all areas of my ministry. There have been some
tough times and some uncertain times but God
was always faithful during those times. I truly
believe when we make ourselves and our gifts
available to God we will experience joy.
*Next week's minister will be Nathan Adams. If you
