Rev. Eric Rentz

Pastor Eric grew up in Southeast Georgia and has been a life-long resident of this part of the state.  He was born in Alma, raised in Waycross, and educated at Georgia Southern University.  Eric has spent his entire 23 year career as a pastor in small, rural communities.

He loves the context of Coastal Georgia and enjoys fishing, hunting, and outdoor adventures.  Eric came to FBC Blackshear after serving as the Southeast's Missions Consultant for the Georgia Baptist Mission Board in 2020.

He and his wife, Sandi, have three children: Seth, Caroline, and Garrison.  His greatest desire is to focus our church on a simple mission statement: "Win the lost, and disciple the won!"  He wants FBC to become a church where you're not just welcome, you're wanted!

Strong Biblical teaching, Discipleship, and Missions are the focal points of his ministry and his desire is to invest in our local community and extend the message of Christ all the way to the nations.
