Our Worship Leader, Wendell Barnhill, modestly relates that he was born into a musical family and "I guess I inherited some talent." Our congregation and frequent visitors wholeheartedly agree!
Wendell can't remember when there was no music in his life. He also can't remember not going to church. "There were always choirs, ensembles, duets, quartets, and such, since childhood at Charleston Heights Baptist Church. However, in 1970, things changed in my life. I learned about the Lordship of Jesus Christ and surrendered my life to Him on January 29, 1971."
Wendell's passion for music led him to take voice and conducting lessons. He furthered his musical education at Baptist College of Charleston and Ridgecrest Baptist Assembly. Since then he has served many churches in the Charleston area in a bi-vocational capacity.
Wendell and his wife Sandra have been serving EBBC since November 2010. All who know Wendell appreciate his warm sense of humor, patience, and love for Christ.
