Glenn Eubanks, associate pastor and minister of music of First Baptist Church, Monroeville, celebrated 30 years of ministry July 28.
What was unique about Eubanks’ anniversary is that he served all of his years at the same Bethlehem Baptist Association church, something he said he was able to do because First, Monroeville, is a “very loving and accepting” church.
First, Monroeville, celebrated Eubanks’ years of ministry with a special service featuring former and current choir members led by Keith Hibbs, who served as the minister of music 30 years ago. Pastor Micah Gandy spoke on the importance and blessing of serving in ministry and attendees later gathered for lunch in the fellowship hall. Eubanks also was presented with several letters and cards from friends and family.
Eubanks, who graduated from the University of Mobile, traveled with the singing group TRUTH. He later attended New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
“All along the way God was speaking to me about a place in ministry, specifically in music,” he said.
After seminary in the summer of 1983, First, Monroeville, asked Eubanks to serve as its minister of music and youth minister. The rest is history.
“It’s been an incredible fit for me and my family,” Eubanks said of his role at First, Monroeville. “God has been gracious to allow us to be here for all these years.”
In his current role as associate pastor and minister of music, Eubanks works with senior adults and family ministries and helps with weddings, funerals and sometimes fills the pulpit.
Eubanks and his wife, Sherri, have three children and three grandchildren.
