Meet Lead Pastor Eric Godwin


Having grown up in Sulphur Springs, Eric has a natural love for his hometown.

Upon graduation from college, Eric married Mandy, his high school sweetheart, and accidentally began a career in IT.

Blessed with four beautiful children, Eric & Mandy enjoy spending time outdoors and hanging out with neighbors.

Finding his way through the doors of Shannon Oaks Church as an eager Christ-follower, Eric sensed a new journey on the horizon.

Seeing his gifts and his burdens collide, Eric left his career in IT and joined the staff at Shannon Oaks Church in August 2012.
