Sonny Flowers

Associate Pastor

When River Oaks began in 1999, Sonny Flowers established its youth ministry. Over the years, he has led numerous young people on short-term mission trips - not only to various places within the States - but also to other places such as Jamaica, Kenya, and Argentina. He has since begun overseeing our Congregational Care Ministry (hospital visits, prayer teams), Divorce Care, and Sunday Morning Ministry Teams. Sonny is a servant’s servant. He will not ask you to do anything he is not willing to do himself. Sonny is a “roll-up-your-sleeves-and-get-the-job-done” person. Is there a need? Not only does he want to meet it, but he will go the extra mile to do so. In fact, if we tried, it is likely that we would be unable to count those “extra miles”. Sonny grew up in Winston-Salem, NC. He married his best friend, Trish, in 1983, and they have two grown children, Sunnie Leigh and Trey. Sonny earned his Master of Arts in Theological Studies and his Master of Divinity in Christian Ministry at Carolina Evangelical Divinity School. In his downtime, you might find Sonny golfing, fishing, or hunting.
