Hey! So Glad You're Here.
Pastor, Jeff Harris
Jeffrey Harris finds his greatest joy in serving his community and seeing lives transformed by the power of the Gospel.
He and his wife, Sandra, reside in his hometown of Maiden, North Carolina where he is the pastor at Friendly Chapel Baptist Church. Before taking on the role at Friendly Chapel Baptist in 2008, he was a fill-in pastor at various churches ranging from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Eastern part of North Carolina.
After graduating from East Lincoln High School, he followed his desire to serve God at Columbia International University located in Columbia, South Carolina. With the motto of “To know Him and to make Him known”, he believes that the knowledge he gained from Columbia International University has aided him in teaching the good news of Jesus Christ through expository preaching.
He is faithful to his church members where he prefers to have an “on-call” type of relationship with them. He is passionate about visiting his homebound members, showing up for members who are experiencing medical mishaps, as well as being a pillar for any and all members who need him, day or night.
His life verse is Galatians 2:20 "I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless, I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me."
Preacher, Silas Smith
