  • Eric Whelchel

    Senior Pastor

    Eric accepted the call to Pastor FBC Lindale in March of 2018 after serving our church as Minister to Students since October of 2001.  He's a graduate of Pepperell High School (1994) here in Lindale and earned his B.S. in Christian Ministry from Shorter College (1998) in Rome.  Eric and his wife, Kim, have been married for 25 years and have served together in ministry their entire marriage. Eric has recently returned to school part-time pursuing a Masters of Divinity from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. They're proud parents of three boys; Tyler (24), Ben (21) and Rob (16).  

    Eric loves building relationships and watching others fall in love with God and His Word.  He's a faithful fan of the Back-to-Back National Champion Georgia Bulldogs, enjoys technology, and loves all kinds of music (80's); especially the music of the church.  Eric would love to answer any questions you may have or tell you more about our church and it's ministries.

    Minister of Music

    Daniel Ng has been a part of the music ministry of FBC Lindale since August of 2011.  Daniel has served as accompanist, Interim Worship Leader, and is currently our Minister of Music (since 2017). Originally from Georgetown, KY, Daniel's calling to sacred music began in 1998 playing piano for Cane Run Baptist Church in Lexington, KY. Although very traditional in nature, exposure to contemporary worship has led him to love all of the several musical channels that praise God. Narrowing it down to five songs, his favorites are "Revelation Song", "There is Something About That Name", "Be Still My Soul", "Great I Am" and "I Shall Not Want". Outside of leading in worship, Daniel loves to go home for a home cooked meal, enjoy the outdoors, and he bleeds blue for “Your Kentucky Wildcats."

    Dan would love to answer any questions you may have about our worship services or tell you more about how you can be involved in our music ministry.
