PASTOR ERIC VINCENT THOMAS
Pastor Eric Vincent Thomas is a native Atlantan, growing up in one of Atlanta’s historic westside neighborhoods. He attended Woodward Academy, a nationally recognized private school where he excelled academically, and as an athlete with record breaking stats in football.
After graduation from high school, Eric was accepted into North Carolina A&T, where he earned his B.A. degree in Political Science. His college years were fun and full of excitement, it was also where the calling to ministry on his life began to formalize.
Growing up in a home where the fundamentals of Christianity were the guiding factors for daily living in conjunction with responsible community service, Eric knew exactly how to respond to God’s call on his life. As an individual who takes a practical approach to life, rather than a theoretical or idealistic position, his concern is always about the tangible results; especially relative to (in his own words) “The Lord’s Work”.
Pastor Thomas has been the Senior Pastor of Saint Peter Missionary Baptist Church located in Southwest Atlanta, for almost 18 years. He will be celebrating his Pastoral Anniversary, in March 2022. Pastor Thomas never forgets to honor his congregation for their commitment to the Gospel and the community as well as honoring the memory of his long-time mentor and friend, the late Reverend Howard W. Crecy Jr., who was his predecessor.
Throughout Atlanta, Pastor Thomas is lovingly referred to as “My Pastor”. This reference came about because, Pastor Thomas will show up day or night to deliver the Word of God wherever needed! Pastor Thomas has a unique approach to Ministry; the anointing on his life has facilitated opportunities beyond expectations. He has been able to navigate and merge his servient leadership skills with aspects of his professional career(s) most recently, as the CityWide Faith Based Coordinator for the Mayor’s Office. He has a deep and resounding commitment to the community.
Pastor Thomas’ accomplishments and reassurance are vast. But you will never hear him boast or brag relative to intellect, education, ministerial training, exposure, or pedigree; he lets everyone know that he is completely dependent upon the Will and Power of God. Pastor Thomas enjoys sharing with people that “today, I am a walking miracle”. Having undergone a heart-transplant in 2019, Pastor Thomas literally saw and felt life leave his body, never wavering from the belief that God was a Healer! With numerous other continual reminders of God’s mercy and grace in his life, the two most important are his sons Isaiah 20 and Noah 19 years old, both of whom are in college.
Pastor Thomas is known for his liberality and insight. As a result, he has been recruited to sit on several Boards. His devotion to our youth and just giving back in general has been resolute. He is currently affiliated with the following organizations
