A Massachusetts native, Erik moved to Nebraska with the Air Force, and it was there that he heard the gospel for the first time and was converted. Soon after becoming a Christian, pastoral ministry became a driving priority for Erik. Upon graduating from Bible college, he served as a pastoral intern and later as an Assistant Pastor at Omaha Bible Church (2002-2010). In 2011, the church sent Erik out to lead the church planting efforts for Emmaus Bible Church in Omaha. In 2018, he came back to New England to serve as the Senior Pastor of Redeemer.
