My desire is to help church leaders grow their ministry and reach their God given potential. One of the ways I do that is by speaking at various events. For over 20 years, I have been equipping audiences of all ages through conferences, leadership seminars, staff & volunteer trainings, preaching, camps & events for kids/students, and more.

Whether I’m preaching during a Sunday morning worship service or training leaders, my goal is to encourage people and help them reach their potential. Their potential as volunteers, as staff, as leaders, as parents, and ultimately as followers of Jesus.

Having served at both large and small churches, I have the ability to relate to different audiences and understand the challenges that different sized churches experience. I am passionate about helping ministry leaders understand the importance of what they do and assisting them in discovering how they can increase their Kingdom impact.

What Others Are Saying

“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

“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
