Pastor Chuck Perkins

I would personally like to take this time to thank God for the privilege of growing up in a Christian home.  My parents are Charles and Nancy Perkins.  Through my family and my church growing up, at the age of 10 I came to know Jesus Christ as my personal Savior.
Like many Christian teens, there was a time that I strayed from the Lord.  But as a young adult God begin to deal with my heart, showing me that I was not where I needed to be with Him in fellowship.  I prayed and made a vow with the Lord.  That prayer vow went something like this, “Lord I know I am not right in my heart with you.  As a believer I need to and should be living for you and not myself.  Please forgive me and help me to live for you.”  And then I added, “And, Lord if you desire for me to have a wife you will have to send me the one you want me to have.”
For the next several months I concentrated as a believer on building my relationship with Chris.  Then one day at work a co-worker called me into her office.  Thinking it was work related I went to her office and she said, “I have the perfect girl for you and I think you two would make a great couple.”  As they say, “The rest was history.” That perfect girl my co-worker introduced me to, was my wife Tracy.  We were married February 3, 1990
In January of 1991 God called me to preach.  God made the way for me to enroll at Greensboro Bible Institute of Church Street Baptist Church in Greensboro, NC.  In April of 1997 I graduated from Bible College.  In March of 1997 Eastside Baptist Church voted and asked me to become their third pastor since 1960.
God has blessed me and Tracy with four wonderful children; Sammy, Elisabeth, Charity, and Josiah.  In July of 2015 God added to our family when our oldest, Sammy was married to Rachel Cooper.
I personally thank you for visiting our church website.  If you are unsure about where you would spend eternity or you are looking for a church home I invite you to visit with us at Eastside Baptist.  Preaching from the Word of God is our top priority.  We love to see people come to know Christ as their personal Savior, grow in the Lord, and for families to come together in Christ.  I am sure you would find our church a family friendly church.
Thank you again
Pastor Chuck Perkins

Assistant to the Pastor & Youth Director Chris Hill

Brother Chris grew up in Rockingham, North Carolina.  When he was seven years old during Sunday School his teacher explained that he was a sinner and Jesus had died to provide salvation and if he would accept this free gift he could know Christ as his personal Savior.  At the age of 16 at a summer camp he felt the calling from God to be a preacher.  In 2005 after graduating high school he moved to Knoxville, TN to attend Crown College of the Bible.  In May 2009 he graduated with a degree in Pastoral Theology and in June of that year he married Crystal Gregory who graduated from Crown with a degree in Elementary Education.  In July of 2009 the Hill family joined Eastside Baptist Church and in 2010 Eastside voted for Brother Chris to become the Assistant to the Pastor and Youth Director.  God has blessed their family with two little girls Abigail and Emma.
