This was kind of a “visit.” Eddie Brinkley came to the Chattanooga area back in October, 2010 to hold a meeting. I drove up there to attend a night of the meeting, but also to take bro. Brinkley to the Gospel Broadcasting Network’s facility to record an interview. He has been a longtime preacher “hero” of mine, and I can’t even tell how much of a thrill it was for me to be able to go visit with him and sit down like that and talk with him about his training under Marshall Keeble, his experience in local work, and so on. It was only my 2nd time being able to meet him in person, since he lives all the way in Wharton, TX (near Houston).
I have posted a few excerpts from that interview on the GBN Facebook fan page. There are 4 clips, varying from about 2 minutes to 5, (link is below).
Bro. Brinkley is one of the most humble men I have ever met, and it truly was an honor to have him “visit” the Chattanooga area, as well as for me to be able to go up that way and “visit” with him for the interviews!
Here is the link if anyone wants to watch the excerpts:
