Senior Pastor


 Life was going great for the most part in 2001;  I was blessed to win the IPRA  World Championship in calf roping, but in doing so the Lord put a cowboy evangelist in my path. I am so glad He did!  I realized as he shared the word of God with me on a regular basis it didn’t matter how successful I was as a calf roper or in my trucking business, I was lost, undone, and  hell bound without Jesus!! One Tuesday morning in an ole Mack truck led by the Holy Spirit I surrendered my life to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Since then led by the same Holy Spirit I have been blessed to be the founder of Believer Arena Ministry and called to be the pastor at Exciting Southeast Baptist Church. Serving the Lord in this capacity has been very exciting and very challenging but I wouldn’t have it any other way!!!

I couldn’t do the ministry without my help mate and wife, Donna Pierce! Our two boys and their wives Trey and Reagan, Trenton and Marisa and our daughter Ashlee who are also willing to help wherever needed.

Youth Pastor & Worship Leader – Pryor Campus

Eric Troyer

Eric was born and raised most of his life around Pryor and Mayes County, graduating from Pryor High School in 1995.  At the age of 12 he surrendered his heart and life to Jesus and received salvation.

Eric met the love of his life, Leila, in 2000 and they married in 2002.  Over the next eight years they added four beautiful daughters to their family: Abby, Maggie, Cady, and Hadlee.  They now home school their girls as the best option for their family and are enjoying it immensely.

Shortly after Eric and Leila married, he began to realize he had a call to ministry, though he didn’t yet know what that would look like.  Through a series of events in God’s timing in 2003, Eric and Leila began to attend Southeast Baptist (before it was Exciting Southeast!) where Eric became the music minister.  In 2005, as the church grew, Eric became the youth minister in addition to music minister.  2013-2014 brought big changes for Exciting Southeast with opening the Tahlequah campus and Eric moved into the role of Associate Pastor, preaching Sunday nights and Wednesday nights and leading worship in all services. Since August of 2017 he went back to teaching the youth on a weekly basis and is helping to continue their growth and walk with the Lord.
