The First Baptist Church of Erwin formed our Pastor Search Committee in June 2018 following the retirement of our previous pastor.  The Pastor Search Committee, recognizing the significance of the task bestowed upon them by our brothers and sisters, seeks to provide transparency and a spirit of open communication with our Church family.  This website will serve as a platform for us to update the Church on our progress.


Throughout the coming months, we ask that the Church continue to pray for guidance, wisdom, and unity while seeking the one whom God is already raising up to be our next Pastor.  It is our sincere promise to keep the Holy Spirit as our guide and Christ as the center of our search process.  Please pray that the true needs of our congregation and our greater community will be discovered as we seek the Lord's will about His plans for First Baptist Church.

The members of the Senior Pastor Search Committee are:


Logan Engle, Chairwoman

Lynn Erwin (in memoriam)

Paul Farnor

Terry Olson, Secretary
Rob Stromberg


First Baptist Church of Erwin, an historic downtown church approaching our bicentennial, seeks a full-time senior pastor to lead our church into a new chapter in our history. Erwin is a small city of 6,000 nestled in the Appalachian Mountains and conveniently located between Asheville, NC and Johnson City, TN. FBC is a welcoming congregation with a commitment to serving our community through local missions and outreach and the fulfillment of Christian education from birth to adulthood. We are a Baptist congregation that affirms the 1963 Baptist Faith and Message. We desire a pastor who has a heart for pastoral ministry, seeing this ministry as a key aspect of church growth and retention. The pastor should be an avid student of God’s word and present it in a way that challenges our congregation.


Preference will be given to candidates that hold an accredited seminary or divinity school degree and possess five to ten years of experience. Compensation commensurate with education and experience.


The First Baptist Church prepared a profile to assist the understanding of those persons interested in the position of Senior Pastor.  The Church Profile includes insight into community and church demographics as well as budgetary, historical, ministry, cultural, and contextual information.

Can I use my insurance to cover the costs of my appointments?

Restorative Breathing is a cash only practice. Insurance does not cover the cost of any services provided, as they are not medical. HSA cards can be used with our office; however, your insurance company may require you to reimburse them if they do not find the charge to be covered by your plan.

How do you conduct virtual appointments?

Our office uses Zoom for all virtual appointments. This software is very user friendly, free to our clients, and is completely secure and HIPAA compliant. Zoom is available for IOS, Android, or through the internet. If you have a virtual appointment scheduled, please look out for an email with your meeting link. Below are two links to learn more about Zoom and how to use it successfully. Learn more about joining a meeting through Zoom: If you have any issues, please look here for help:

What time zone are your appointments in?

​When scheduling an appointment, all times are listed in Mountain Standard Time (MST). This can be confused with Mountain Time (MT), which is one hour different for part of the year. Please adjust accordingly to your time zone.

I was told that I would receive a list of exercises to do at home. Where and when will these be sent to me?

We call the exercises that you do at home, Home Movements. The list of assigned Home Movements will be sent to you through your Jane account with detailed instructions, within one business day from your appointment time. Once these are uploaded to your account, you will receive an email with a link to view them that says "A document has been shared with you". If you have any questions about these Home Movements, or the instructions, please email or call our office during business hours.

How do I login to my Jane account?

1. Go to our Home Page or our Services Page, and click on the button "Book an Appointment". 2. In the top right, you will see "Sign In", click the words. This will direct you to the login screen. 3. Enter your email address or username that you entered to create your account originally and click "Next". 4. Enter your password and submit. If you have any issues, contact our office during business hours.

I can't find your address, what is it or where can I find it?

We are located in north Glendale, Arizona. If your appointment requires our home office address, this information will be included in your appointment confirmation and reminder emails from Jane. If you still need further assistance, please call our office!

How many appointments should I expect?

The length of care is entirely case dependant. You can expect anywhere from 4 months to over a year. Length of care greatly depends on the consistency and dedication of the Home Movements assigned, as well as how quickly the nerves respond to activation. Each person is very different from one another and there is no way for us to anticipate what will be needed for you to achieve your wellness goals.

I have a young child, do I need to have them present at the appointment?

Absolutely, Lois is not able to assess their abilites or offer recommendations without seeing their body's reaction first hand. The client that the appointment is for must be present during all appointments, unless specifically discussed ahead of time.

I need some help using the patient portal through Jane
