Ernie, and his wife Belinda, DuPont moved from South Texas in 2018 to the Texarkana area for employment opportunities. They lived in Texarkana Texas for about two months when they arrived, until they decided Texarkana is where they are going to plant roots. Belinda is currently going through the Church On The Rock (COTR) School of Ministry with a plan to minister to people in Texarkana through their ranch around DeKalb, Texas. Ernie started as a contractor and now is full time staff for COTR.
Ernie Leads a group of 20 area men in bible study every Wednesday night using Tri-State Logistics facilities. Ernie, just finished leading 6 men on a weeklong water well drilling mission trip in Atoyac de Alvarez Mexico where they drilled 4 productive water wells for the poor people in the area. News of the “Texarkana Boy’s” has reached as far as Beaumont Texas. Every third Saturday Ernie leads the 9 am Men’s breakfast at COTR with 60 to 80 men in attendance. Ernie knows what it means to lead with a servants heart. We all need to be a little more like Ernie DuPont.
