Eric grew up as an Army brat and claims to be a type of “religious casserole”, since he’s lived all over the country and been involved in just about every church denomination known to man. His family and friends say this simply leaves him confused, but he is quick to call it well-rounded.
Eric and his wife Jill sensed a call to full time ministry in 2005 and left the comfort of “home” in Oregon to join the staff of a church in Houston, TX. After spending five years serving on local church staff in both Houston and Mckinney, TX, Eric joined the staff of Marriage Mentors in 2010 where he serves as the Director of Relationship Development. Don’t worry, he has no idea what that title means either, but knows that he loves partnering with churches across the country to strengthen marriages through mentoring relationships.
Eric and Jill have a passion to see couples build God-honoring marriages that leave a legacy for generations to come. They have been married for 18 years and have three daughters: Karli (13), Kaia (11), and Kendal (8). Eric has a B.S. in Sociology from Oregon State University and a Master of Arts in Marriage & Family Counseling from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Eric is the Director of Counseling at One.
