Roger Ewing
Senior Pastor
 
 
At the young age of eighteen years, the Lord called Pastor Roger and his wife Garnie into ministry while living in Alexandria, Virginia. They answered the call to move to Danville, Virginia in 1970, but God had plans in the interim for them that included a two year journey to live overseas while in the military.  
 
In June 1977, Pastor Roger and Garnie became two of sixteen original charter members of White Oak Worship Center, formerly known as Full Gospel Fellowship Church. For the first few years of the church’s existence Pastor Roger made sure that the “pulpit was filled,” but God continued to gently call him into full-time ministry.  
 
After much prayer and maybe a little pleading Pastor Roger became our senior pastor in February 1980. Since that time God has used Pastor Roger to not only declare the truths of God in a powerful, practical and even humorous way, but God also gave him the gift of being a powerful soul winner. Many people have come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ because of the compassion, care and preaching of Pastor Roger. 
 
Most importantly Pastor Roger and Garnie are known for being loving, gentle shepherds over our flock. The word “pastor” can be overused today, but simply put, there is no better word to describe this man of God and his dear wife!
 
 
Cabel Cobb
Associate Pastor
 
Our associate pastor, Cabel Cobbs, is no stranger to our community. Pastor Cabel (pronounced “Cabble”) was born and raised just a few miles from here in Callands, Virginia. Often and to the delight of those in our fellowship, Pastor Cabel recalls in his sermons many stories of his youth and life “on the farm.” Pastor Cabel has a genuine and unique way of connecting with each person, and we are blessed to have him. He and his lovely wife, Sylvia, have served our church for over twenty years.
