Dr. Sonny Holmes, Interim Pastor

Sonny Holmes

         Dr. Sonny Holmes retired in 2014 as lead pastor of Northwood Baptist Church, North Charleston, He Graduated from The Citadel,  (BS 1971), and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (MDiv, 1982; DMin, 1990). He pastored four wonderful congregations and served on the staff of the South Carolina Baptist Convention for three years.   We welcome him as interim pastor to Edisto Beach Baptist Church.

         His passions start with Harriet, his life partner, daughter Elizabeth Carpenter and son-in-law, Scott; grandson, John Lewis Carpenter and granddaughter Laura Elizabeth Carpenter and Katie Holmes wife of their deceased son Brian Eliot Holmes.

         Innovation and creativity in ministry are his core values and personal strengths.  Sonny also has a blog, which provides him the discipline of posting every day which keeps his gears meshing, his vocabulary growing, and his thoughts in focus.   His latest book is Finish. Period.: Going the Distance in Ministry -

     She and her husband, Bob (who works at Wyndham), are members of EBBC. Stephany is thrilled to have the opportunity to lead worship and accompany the choir. Her mission is to “Serve the Lord with gladness and come before His presence with singing.”
