Sunday, January 27, 2019, East Shore Baptist began a new chapter in the life of our church in calling and ordaining its first 3 Elders. Each of these men, in concert with and supported by their wives, have truly exemplified the biblical model of elder in their lives and ministry. So proud and blessed to serve alongside them! Pastor Brian
Elder Wade Hutcheson
Wade is married to Julia (1986) and the father of Ben and Tyler, and a proud grandfather of two. Wade and his family joined us in 2011 when the Army transferred him to Fort Indiantown Gap, before retiring. He wasted no time finding a church for himself, and his family who were soon to follow. They have been busy ever since, faithfully serving Christ in the church. Some of the many ministries he has served on include: Deacon, teacher, Home Fellowship Group Leader, and Keystone Correctional Ministry.
Elder Tom Toone
Tom is married to Debbie (1982 ), and the father of John (yes, our Associate Pastor), Tommy, Jackson, and Diann. A retired public school principal, Tom and his family joined the church in 1991. He has served the church well in many roles: as a Deacon since 2002, teacher/Bible Study leader, Home Fellowship Group leader, and biblical counselor, to name just a few.
Given a passion for sharing the Gospel, Tom also serves as the head of our Evangelism Ministry. When not at church you may find him serving as a volunteer chaplain at Community General Hospital, mentoring a student at Paxtonia Elementary through KidsHope, or leading our Keystone Correctional Ministry; and more often than not, sharing Christ with hurting and broken lives.
Tom is a retired public school principal.
Elder Dan Long
Daniel is married to Julie (1999), and is the father of Lindsey. Daniel and his family joined the church in 2000. He has served Christ in the church in many capacities, including: Deacon, singing on the Worship Team, teaching, biblical counselor, and Home Fellowship Group Leader (actually our first), to name just a few. Daniel also has a special ministry he calls “Metal for Missions”, where he can be found scrapping metal, and clearing houses, and donating the vast majority of any proceeds to the Missions Ministry of ESBC.
Daniel is retired military, Marines and Air Force.
