I have been a pastor at Redeemer Church in Utica NY for the past 18 years. 14 of those years serving as children’s pastor. Currently I am serving as the Utica Campus Pastor and the Global family pastor.
I am currently a contributing editor to K! magazine, serve as chairman of INCM, co-authored “The Eric Trap”, have been involved in several book projects, and been blogging here since 2007. I have spoken at conferences and have done some consulting and coaching. My real passion lies in preaching the gospel, building and strengthening the local church in any way possible because I believe in creating environments where life change can take place. I truly believe that the local church is the hope of the world.
I have been married to my beautiful wife for 16 years together we have 4 beautiful children ages 10, 7, 5 and 1. We currently live in Upstate New York.
