Eric has served on staff since 1999 in various capacities. He is passionate about helping people live out God’s plan for their life and helping them reach their full redemptive potential. Community impact, spiritual formation, and creative communications are Eric’s passion areas. As a Chattanooga native, Eric has a strong desire to see our community reached for Christ. At the same time Eric takes Christ’s commission to make disciples of all nations seriously- so Eric provides leadership to cultivate a culture at OUMC that encourages the church to be ever mindful of reaching out to those beyond our walls so that we are on mission with God in our local community as well as to other nations and people groups.
