Tone Eberhart – Student Pastor

Hi, Church family. I guess after being here for a few months, I probably should do a formal introduction. I’m Toné Eberhart. I am 29 years old, and I am an Atlanta native. I have been living in Fayetteville since 2007, and I love every moment of it. I graduated from Fayette County High in 2010, and if I look strangely familiar to anyone, it may be because I worked for Chick fil a Towne Center, and Starrs Mill from 2011-2019. I’ve always had a heart for the youth, so to be able to be a blessing to CCW through the youth ministry means the world. I volunteered here a lot under past Youth Pastors, so I am definitely not a stranger to CCW. That is why when I accepted the position as Youth Pastor here , it felt just like coming home.  It has been so awesome worshiping here with you all! So hey, if you see me, please stop me and say hi. However, I’m going to warn you, I am a talker!! Contact: teberhart@ccwhitewater.org
