After spending four years in the Marine Corps, he moved home to study string bass performance at McNeese State University and loved studying and playing Jazz. He has had the opportunity to play in several bands in both secular and worship settings, even spending some time traveling with some. He eventually found his calling in student ministry and discipleship.
In September of 2006, Eric was asked to come on staff at CrossRoads Church in Moss Bluff, LA and has been there ever since. In his time at CrossRoads, Eric has created a truly student led, student fed ministry engaging teenagers in day in, day out disciple making in their schools, homes, and lives.
Eric is married to Holly and they have two children: Michael and Matti. They are both passionate about worship, relationships, and showing the love of Christ.
