Tracy Stone
Vice Chairman

Evangelist Tracy Stone is known for his heart of worship, anointing and burning desire to see souls saved. His very heartbeat is to see people who are lost and hurting delivered through the power of Jesus Christ.

Tracy Stone was born October 23, 1971. He was raised along with five siblings in Middlesex, NC by his parents Mr. and Mrs. J. Harold Stone. Going to church was the number one focus of his family. Everything was centered around church. At the tender age of 5 Tracy received Jesus Christ. Those around Tracy saw that there was an unusual anointing on his life. It was then Tracy's grandfather, the late Reverend Isaac Hinton, sensed that Tracy was Called of God and just before Rev. Hinton went to be with the Lord, he prayed a blessing over Tracy's life, and he passed his "Mantle of Anointing" on to Tracy. At age 8, he received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, and at age 15 Tracy started to evangelize, carrying this torch that was passed onto him to our lost and dying world.

Throughout his life and ministry Tracy knew the importance of having a spiritual covering. Therefore, Tracy has surrounded himself with spiritual mothers and fathers. A strong healing anointing rests upon Tracy Stone. Many have witnessed and experienced miracles that have taken place through this servant of God. In 2001, Tracy pioneered and founded a church in Georgia. In 2002, Tracy returned to full-time evangelism and traveled the world until October 2006. Tracy is currently the Pastor at Centerpoint Church of God in Griffin Georgia and together they have been a huge blessing to God's Pit Crew.
Roger Ewing

At the young age of eighteen years, the Lord called Pastor Roger and his wife Garnie into ministry while living in Alexandria, Virginia. They answered the call to move to Danville, Virginia in 1970, but God had plans in the interim for them that included a two year journey to live overseas while in the military.  
In June 1977, Pastor Roger and Garnie became two of sixteen original charter members of White Oak Worship Center, formerly known as Full Gospel Fellowship Church. For the first few years of the church’s existence Pastor Roger made sure that the “pulpit was filled,” but God continued to gently call him into full-time ministry.  
After much prayer and maybe a little pleading Pastor Roger became our senior pastor in February 1980. Since that time God has used Pastor Roger to not only declare the truths of God in a powerful, practical and even humorous way, but God also gave him the gift of being a powerful soul winner. Many people have come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ because of the compassion, care and preaching of Pastor Roger. 
Most importantly Pastor Roger and Garnie are known for being loving, gentle shepherds over our flock. The word "pastor" can be overused today, but simply put, there is no better word to describe this man of God and his dear wife!
