He has been teaching and leading worship for churches, camps, mission organizations, and retreats since 2004.”I never intended to go into ministry! The worship leader/youth pastor at the church I was attending in college left so the leaders came to me and said, ‘you can play the guitar and you have been working with the youth for a while so we would like you to help take those responsibilities.’   I was thrown into the deep end of pool. I quickly had to learn how to swim and I have been doing ministry ever since.”

Creativity is at the forefront of God’s word and Erik is driven to see it cultivated as both a public speaker and through music.

Erik graduated from Southwestern College [now Arizona Christian University] in 2004 with a Bachelors in Christian Ministry [emphasis on Counseling] and has graduated from the 10,000 Fathers Worship School led by Aaron Keyes.  He is now pursuing his Mdiv from Fuller Seminary.
