Eric became the Lead Pastor at Brookside Church in April of 2014. Before that, Eric grew up in Leo, Indiana, then moved to Marion, Indiana, then to Lexington, Kentucky, then to Richmond, Indiana, and finally back home to Fort Wayne. In between, Eric received his Bachelors in Christian Ministry and Philosophy from Indiana Wesleyan University and his Masters in Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary. He has served as a Young Adult and Young Families Pastor as well as a Campus Pastor.
While at Indiana Wesleyan University, Eric met Heather, who graciously agreed to marry him after graduation and have been married since 2005. Since then, they have added daughters Olivia and Evelyn and a son Judah.
Eric's passion is to preach the Bible in relevant and applicable ways and to lead Brookside Church to bring people far from God close to Him through Jesus.
