Care and Discipleship Pastor
Eric has been providing oversight to Worship Center's pastoral care ministry since he joined our staff in 2017. He also leads our Equip classes, helping people achieve a life of faith, leadership, and purpose.
Eric was born and raised in Rochester, NY in a large Catholic family. In 1977 Eric entered the Air Force and was introduced to a personal relationship with Jesus in 1979 through the Christian Servicemen's Center in Kaiserslautern, Germany. He's been in love with Jesus ever since!
After being discharged from the Air Force in 1982, he received a call to pastoral ministry and enrolled at Elim Bible Institute and College (EBI&C), later receiving his bachelor's degree in Biblical Studies from Trinity Bible College and Seminary. Eric met his wife, Cindy (who also serves at Worship Center), at EBI&C. They have 4 grown children living all over the country and 8 grandchildren. They love to connect with their children, ride bike trails, and find new coffee shops!
Eric's passion is to help people meet Jesus and grow into an active relationship with Him, bringing transformation to every area of their lives.
