William J. Erickson
William J. Erickson was born and raised in Columbia County, New York and has had a burden for this area. It was here where he met his wife Daphne and they married in January of 1999. In July of 2000, God called him to preach the unsearchable riches of Christ during an evening service at his home church, Bible Baptist Church of Ghent. After this God led him to a great private, Independent Baptist college out in the Mid-west to train for the ministry. In October of 2005, Bro. Erickson was ordained into the Gospel ministry as a Baptist Preacher back at his home church. Then in February of 2013, God called Him to Re-Open the doors of the Flat Brook Baptist Church after an entire year of the church being closed. Pastor Erickson has a Bachelors of Science degree in Pastoral Theology from Hyles Anderson College in Crown Point, Indiana and holds a Master of Theology from Gethsemane Bible Institute in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas.
