Youth Pastor
Eric Bentley
Eric Bentley was called to MSBC as the Pastor to Students in July 2018. Eric holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Ouachita Baptist University, where he double majored in Theology and Ministry. He plans to complete his Master’s degree from Moody Bible Institute by 2020. He is currently enrolled in the Master of Arts in Biblical Exposition degree program.

Eric married Kaylie Roberts  on November 17, 2018. Eric and Kaylie started dating in tenth grade, after meeting at a fall youth camp that they both attended. It is Eric and Kaylie’s desire to see students’ lives impacted within the church and to see those students impact the lives of others outside the church as well.

Eric plans to help the youth grow by following the principles found in Deuteronomy 6 and helping the students and parents build a Deuteronomy 6 foundation in the home. His goal is to help equip parents to disciple their students and help students understand the importance of being receptive to their parents’ leadership. Eric is also very passionate about small groups and will seek to get students placed in small groups so that they have other students there to support them in their life journey.
