THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST Staff Page
Our staff is made up of Christians with a genuine love for lost souls.
The elders of The McLish Avenue church of Christ in Ardmore, OK, also oversee TGOC. Vernon Castleman, James Meece, and Chock Aldridge are determined that the programs we produce are sound in doctrine, of the highest quality possible, and evangelistic in nature.
Kevin Pendergrass, evangelist, serves as the director for the work – and as one of the speakers for the television and radio programs as well as for promoting the work. He graduated from the East Tennessee School of Preaching and Missions (now named the Southeast Institute of Biblical Studies). Kevin travels throughout the world preaching the gospel, holding meetings, participating in public debates, and sharing with others how they can use the abundant, efficacious, free resources TGOC has to offer.
Ben Bailey is the preacher for the Central church of Christ in McMinnville, TN. He is a graduate of the Brown Trail School of Preaching and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Bible and ministry. Ben serves as one of the speakers for TGOC television broadcasts.
David Fanning is from Athens, AL, and has been preaching the gospel for over 31 years. He is the moderator for Kevin Pendergrass’ debates and has now come on board with TGOC as promoter for the states of Alabama and Tennessee. He holds a B.A. (DLU) and an M.A. (ACU) in Biblical Languages and has had a lifelong goal of sharing in “taking the whole gospel to the whole world” in his generation.
Cody Westbrook is a 2009 graduate of the Southwest School of Bible Studies and a 2012 graduate of Amridge University. He works full time as the preacher for the McLish Avenue congregation, and he writes articles for TGOC.
Hale Cole (M.A. LMFT, LAC) is a faithful Christian, a personal evangelist, and a licensed family, marriage, and addiction counselor. He will be heading up our new “Biblical Counseling” section on our website beginning in June 2013. We know that he will be a great service to those in need.
DeeAnne Dillard is a member of the church in Lone Grove, OK. She is a graduate of Southeastern Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor’s degree in English Education. After a brief but distinguished career as a high school teacher, and fresh from a long stint at Ardmore’s UPS Store, she is now the Head of Administrative Operations (aka The Secretary) for TGOC.
Brandon Horton runs the technology behind the scenes (including the website, video engineering, and software). He holds an Associate of Science in General Studies, learned video engineering from eleven years of experience with the Star News Corporation, and has been involved in computer programming since childhood. A former atheist, Brandon is thrilled to now be of service to TGOC.
