Pastor Mike Abendroth
Mike’s passion is preaching the Bible in a verse-by-verse fashion and training other men to do the same. He graduated from The Master’s Seminary in 1996 (M. Div.), received his doctorate in Expository Preaching at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in May 2006 (D. Min.), and is an adjunct professor of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Pastor Mike is also the author of Jesus Christ: The Prince of Preachers (DayOne, 2007), The Sovereignty and Supremacy of King Jesus (DayOne 2011), Things that Go Bump in the Church (Harvest House, 2014) and Discovering Romans (Zondervan, 2014). He is overwhelmed at God’s grace in his salvation and for his family (Kim, Hayley, Luke, Maddie and Grace). Mike has been the Senior Pastor at Bethlehem Bible Church (BBC) in West Boylston, MA since April 1997. When not enjoying his family, Mike is often seen on this.
Pastor Steve Cooley (aka “Tuesday Guy”)
Steve graduated from The Master’s Seminary in 2002 and retired from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in 2004, after 21 years of service. He and his family were called to Bethlehem Bible Church in June, 2004. Steve and his wife Janet have three grown children: Steve Jr., Kristin, and Megan, two godly sons-in-law, Jerry Fish and Joey DeFilippo, and is a grandfather of 6: January, Devany, Autumn, Carys, Jude, and Declan. Steve, aka “The Tuesday Guy,” is the Associate Pastor at Bethlehem Bible Church. He also likes board games, particularly those with some historical flavor.
Erin Benziger (Equipping Eve)
Erin Benziger is the host of Equipping Eve (A No Compromise Radio Production). She graduated from Pepperdine University in 2003 with a BA in Religion and today is pursuing an MA in Biblical Studies from The Master’s College, with plans to graduate in 2016. In a time when the visible church is lacking in doctrinally sound resources for women, Equipping Eve is a ministry that exists to equip women with “fruits of truth” from God’s Word so that they will be prepared to stand strong in an age that is ripe with deception. In addition to Equipping Eve, Erin spends her day at a secular job she is blessed to enjoy, and also blogs at Do Not Be Surprised. She is continually grateful to the Lord for choosing to lift her out of her own self-deception and for the ministry opportunities He has so graciously granted her. Look for Equipping Eve episodes when they are posted every other Saturday.
