"Comments"

Minister of Music at Second Baptist Church of Penn Hills truly has the anointing of the Lord Jesus Christ upon his life and family. He has demonstrated a heart for our church and the city of Pittsburgh by allowing God to use his music ministry to deeply touch our hearts and souls which causes us to walk towards the redeeming work of Jesus Christ. I have witnessed his ministry through "Walk by Faith" and "Eric Blackwell & Faithful" and have seen the Holy Spirit move in mighty ways. When God the Father called Brother Eric to this ministry, it truly was a great day for the building up of the Kingdom of God. Matthews 6:33

Eric, as I see you in the Leadership position of the awesome group called Faithful; it is through your music ministry that I am always elevated in the presence of the Lord - Robin H. Spencer, MHS, CCDP

"Eric is the epitome of faithfulness in how he selflessly serves the body of Christ and reaches out to the lost. I know because I and the Living Word Church are recipients of his selfless faithfulness. I am sure that on the onset, members of his group may not have the same dedication as he, but I know that he is determined to fashion each member into a faithful minister of God's grace. Thus the impact of their worship will lead to a greater devotion to Christ." - Pastor Shawn Kirkland The Living Word Church

"Ministering together with Eric is always a blessing as his agenda is to seek after God's agenda. God has gifted him with the ability to reach across racial lines to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ musically." - Keith C. Kaufold - Pittsburgh Theological Seminary

Eric Blackwell & Faithful uses a fresh approach to having a good time in the name of the Lord. Their ministry is a blessing to the young, old, saved and unsaved and has certainly blessed my mime ministry. While each member recognizes their God given gift of music and also their obligation to use that gift, knowing Eric personally makes me know that planting seeds amongst God's people is a God given assignment that he does not take lightly. Whether you are looking for good music, a good time or encouragement in the Lord, I would recommend allowing Eric Blackwell and Faithful to minister to you. - Renita Burchette and Faces of God

“I know that I don’t qualify for ministry. For me it’s a calling. Serving God is my life, it is who I am and what I do. I truly believe that I am a minister that sings not a singer that ministers”

~Min. Eric Blackwell~

Born and raised in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania into a diverse musical household hearing everything from The Jackson Five, Temptations, and James Brown, to Minnie Riperton, Rance Allen, and Steve Wonder, Eric had developed a great love of music. Saved at the age of 14, the Lord had laid a strong foundation that would later come into fullness as he began music ministry in 1993. Since that time Eric has been heavily active in many areas of music ministry.

“Gifts and talents belong to the Lord, I just use them to encourage his people and to edify him” ~Min. Eric Blackwell

Deut 31:8
8 The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."
