Shields Family Pic - Fall 2022



My family and I came to ECPC in October 2019 from Salisbury, Maryland. I am a graduate of Carson-Newman College (2002) and then went on to receive my MDIV from Reformed Theological Seminary--Orlando (2006). I have served in ministry in Oviedo, FL, Montgomery, AL and as a pastor with churches in Las Cruces, NM and Salisbury, MD.  I have the privilege of being married to my lovely wife Jessica and we have three children who are tremendous gifts from the Lord: Emmaline, Isaac, and Hazel.  I hail from the great state of Virginia, enjoy basketball and tennis, love a variety of music, movies, and books, as well as a good meal and good conversations with friends.  I am privileged to serve as pastor of Eau Claire Presbyterian Church where God has called me to shepherd the flock by His Word and Spirit for His glory, the good of His Church, and the growth of His kingdom.

Mary Beth is a life-long member of the church. Her favorite hymn is "My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less than Jesus' Blood and Righteousness." A close second is "Jesus Paid It All." Nearly every other hymn in the world is tied for third! \0/
