Kyler Post

Assistant Worship Director

Kyler has been a lifelong Metro-Atlanta resident and churchgoer since 1988, spending most of his life in Hiram. He graduated from Berry College in Rome in 2010, and currently resides and works in Sandy Springs working in advertising sales.
 
He has been around music his entire life and started learning piano in 7th grade. Since then, Kyler says that, “music has taken him to some of the coolest places in the country and has allowed him to serve alongside some of the best people, including here at Eastwood.”
 
He plays the piano, leads and manages the Eastwood Band, arranges music, and assists Logan when needed and wherever possible.
 

He is an avid sports fan and news junkie, who has never met a stranger in his entire life. Make sure you say hi when you see him at Eastwood.

Eric Tippens

Worship Pastor

Eric received Christ as his personal savior at age 11, and began his study of music and piano shortly thereafter. He served in his home church until he was called at 19 to serve another church as pianist. This began a music ministry journey that has spanned nearly 25 years. 
 
He earned a BBA Finance Degree from Kennesaw State University, and a Master of Church Music Degree (MCHM) from Lee University with an emphasis in choral conducting. After working in the banking industry for over 12 years, Eric accepted a calling to full time ministry in June of 2011, after serving a few local Metro area churches.
 
Eric is excited to join the Eastwood team, and he plans to build on the rich gospel-centered musical heritage that was established many years ago. He enjoys leading, serving and working alongside both vocalists and instrumentalists to the glory of God and the edification of the Church. 
 
His ministry verse is Colossians 3:16, “Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly with all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”

Denette joined the staff as the Administrative Assistant in August of 2019. She comes to Eastwood after 30+ years in the corporate world. 
 
She accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at the age of 8 in a tent revival at Balboa Baptist Church, Balboa Panama. She has worshiped and served at Eastside Baptist Church in Marietta for over 21 years. At Eastside, Denette participates in a Precept Bible Study and is active in her Sunday School class. She also serves as a stage manager for Christmas productions and in guest services.
 
She is the middle child of 3 girls. Her dad was in the service so they moved around a lot – 2 foreign countries and 4 different states. She received her love for missions and giving back from her parents. Her first “family mission trip” was in 1977. She has enjoyed giving back ever since, but this is especially true while serving on construction mission trips with Builders for Christ and the West Metro Baptist Association.
