Disciple-Maker, Church Planter, Coach, Visionary
Eric believes the Bride of Christ is to be cherished, nurtured, and shepherded by disciple-making leaders. He loves challenging, empowering, and equipping first and second chair leaders to lead disciple-making movements in their context. He is a certified leadership coach and believes coaching can help an individual, group or organization unlock their God-given potential. As a church planter turned pastor of Journeymen Church in Denver, Eric established a community of disciple makers living on mission to reach their neighborhood and beyond. Prior to planting, he was a Youth Pastor for 8 ½ years in Demopolis, Alabama where he helped establish Super Summer Alabama a leadership and discipleship camp for teenagers. He is comfortable in the midst of change or uncertainty found in pioneer areas of ministry and is equally comfortable leaning into the programs, traditions, and settings of the established church. He and his wife, Amanda, have two children and a church full of family in Christ. He loves college football (Roll Tide), backpacking, reading, and building community.
