Eric has been working with youth ever since 1990. It is here that Eric felt called to work with youth in educational and ministry settings. Eric has received various awards for working with youth. Eric has received a Whole Village Award and Outstanding Community Service Award. These awards go to individuals who have served in their local communities and demonstrated exemplary community service. Recently, Eric has served on a FACES Advisory Board, which reviews grant applications and recommends grant awards to grant applicants.
Eric’s vision for the youth is derived from the book of Romans. In the book of Romans, chapter 12: verses 1 and 2 state that we should present our bodies to God because of all that he has done for us, and this is a way that we worship Him. In verse 2, it states that we should not copy the behavior and customs of this world, but we should let God transform us into a new person by changing the way we think; and then we will know God’s perfect will for us, which is good and pleasing and perfect. In order to win souls for Christ, we have to change how we think and see things from God’s perspective. Jesus revolutionized, or “changed” the world one person at a time starting with His disciples. I will challenge youth to change how they think in order for them to be successful, productive, influencers and true disciples of Christ! In doing this, I believe that the Holy Spirit will use them so that others can see what God is doing in their lives and lead them to Christ. Welcome to the “Revolution”!
