Eric comes to Christ Church with extensive experience in Youth and Young Adult Ministry both at the congregational and diocesan level. For 11 years, Eric served in the Diocese of Michigan as the Missioner for Youth and Young Adults. Prior to that ministry, he served 7 years in churches in Springfield, MO and Lake Forest, IL. For another 6 years he served as the Canon for Youth Ministry in the Diocese of Central New York. He is a lifelong Episcopalian with a Certificate of Youth Ministry from the Institute of Professional Youth Ministry, which is now a program run through Sewanee. Eric is married to Julie. They are cat lovers and looking forward to returning to parish ministry and joining Province IV of The Episcopal Church where he already knows some of the other Youth Ministers. We look forward to benefiting from Eric’s vast youth ministry experience.
