Eric grew up abroad as a child of missionaries in the Dominican Republic and Mexico. After graduating from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., with a business degree, he worked in the corporate world for a short time before being called to ministry. He served with the International Mission Board of the SBC in East Asia, and returned to America knowing God was calling him to full-time ministry. Eric studied his M. Div. at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary in Mill Valley, California, where he met his wife, Shannon. Together, they have two wonderful daughters, Katelyn and Jessica. After serving another term in East Asia as missionaries, Eric and Shannon returned to the United States. They spent eleven years in California, where Eric served as an Associate Pastor for five years, and then as a senior pastor for four and a half more years. The family moved to North Carolina in the summer of 2018 in order to be closer to Eric’s family, who all live in the Raleigh/Durham area. Eric came to FBC Creedmoor in August of 2019, and is excited about the things God is doing through the church in south Granville and to the ends of the earth.
