Mike Eiras is the lead pastor at Parker’s Creek, where he has served since March 2018. He grew up in Nashville and has spent the last 20 years as a pastor in Ohio. (Please don’t hold that against him, he still has more UT orange and white in his closet than Buckeye scarlet and gray.) Mike and his wife, Cheri, have been married for 40 years and have two sons, Brad and Jordan, and daughters-in-law, Rebecca and Bethany and two grandbabies! Mike and Cheri enjoy getting to know people and, especially, helping people grow in their walk with Christ. Mike also enjoys serving as an Adjunct Professor for Liberty University, where he has taught Apologetics and World Religion as an online professor for many years. When he’s not spending time with his family or the church, Mike enjoys being outside with the top off his Jeep and a hike in the woods or a day on the lake.

“Then Jesus came to them and said,
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, 
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18-20
