Leading Leaders

We’ve all heard it said that “leaders are learners,” but carving out time to grow as a leader is often difficult to do in our fast-paced lives. There’s too much to do and too little time to do. Yet, intentionally setting aside time for personal coaching will radically shape your personal and professional leadership. 

When it comes to our churches and ministries, sometimes an experienced set of eyes viewing them from the outside is necessary to start the conversations that lead to solutions.

Put my nearly 20 years of ministry leadership experience in large, growing churches to work for you.


I am passionate about seeing churches reach their Kingdom potential. As a leader within the local church for over 20 years, I love utilizing my gifts to develop and empower leaders. I’m available for a seminar, all-day workshop, weekend consulting, and more! I can assist your team in the following areas:

  • Next Generation/Family Ministry
  • Volunteer Recruiting
  • Team Development
  • Culture Creation
  • Systems for a healthy church
  • Facility evaluation and design
  • Guest Services
  • Weekend Experiences
  • Staffing and hiring the best
  • Aligning Mission, Vision, Values, and Strategy
  • Goal Setting and Execution

Coaching and Consulting

Unlock your leadership potential through personal coaching tailored to meet your leadership needs. I have expertise in leading within the local church as a children’s pastor, executive pastor, and senior pastor. My coaching process takes a holistic approach, recognizing that it is impossible to completely separate your personal and ministry life.

Together, we will explore a wide variety of topics:

  • Personal leadership growth
  • Staffing, goal-setting, and implementation
  • Ministry design and organization
  • Effectively leading change
  • Development of both staff and volunteers,
  • Problem solving, conflict resolution
  • Vision and strategy

If you’re ready to embark on a transformative journey of guiding and nurturing leaders within your congregation, I invite you to take the first step towards an enriching coaching relationship.

As a seasoned leadership expert and pastor, I am dedicated to helping you unlock your full potential as you lead others. Through our coaching partnership, we will delve into tailored strategies that focus on equipping you to inspire, mentor, and elevate those around you.

Let’s work together to bring about impactful leadership transformations in your church community. Reach out today to explore how we can begin this journey of shaping exceptional leaders who will make a lasting difference.

I’m also available to speak at your church. I’m available for leadership training, staff retreats, and camps. Let’s talk!


“Eric is a leader of leaders. He is a visionary, creative, resourceful builder of effective teams, who can see a clear picture of where an organization really is, and capture a compelling vision for where that organization needs to go. Few leaders are capable of that. Fewer still have the ability to communicate it. Eric can. God has uniquely gifted and equipped him to think outside the tried and true, outside the box, envisioning and communicating the next. As a personal friend, co-laborer for the Kingdom, and a personal inspiration to me, I highly recommend Eric for your ministry or organization.” – Rob Brooks, Pastor & Ministry Trainer

“Eric is an inspiration! He conducted a top-notch training workshop for our Children’s Church staff using the most current information and cutting-edge techniques. Our staff was thrilled with his presentation and commented on how engaging and well-prepared the training was. They felt enlightened, re-energized and even our seasoned veterans felt they had learned new things about children’s ministry. Eric challenged us to take our children’s ministry to the next level and motivated us to reach their generation in a new way with God at the center of our efforts. We are looking forward to having him back in the near future and continuing to partner with him as we endeavor to effectively minister to our children.” – Sophia Hodo, Christian Life Center Children’s Ministry Director
