Our Pastor was raised on the mission field in the South American country of Venezuela and remained there until graduating from High School in 1984. Shortly thereafter, he returned to the United States and began working as a welder/farbricator – it was an industry that would lead him to the West Texas town of Lubbock, and to his future wife, Ginger. After many years of struggling with the Lord’s will, the Perkins family surrendered to God’s call and moved to Oklahoma City, OK to attend Heartland Baptist Bible College. After graduating in 2007, the Lord began to work in Pastor’s heart about a small work in Hardwick, VT, and in August of that same year was called to Pastor the Hardwick Bible Baptist Church. Our Pastor and his wife have four children, make their home in Hardwick, and consider it an honor to serve in this capacity.
