Erik grew up in Chandler, AZ with a very loving family and 1 older sister. Growing up, Erik’s family did not attend church but at 17 years old, Erik along with his parents found Jesus. Erik found the call to youth ministry just before graduating high school. He interned and was on staff for a season at a local church in Chandler while also attending a local community college and soon Grand Canyon University where Erik graduated in April 2022.
After pursuing a season of camp ministry in Pagosa Springs, CO, Erik was ready to see where God would lead him next in ministry. After months of prayer, Erik was led to Front Range Church where he began his next chapter of life in July 2023 as the Student Ministry Director.
Erik enjoys watching sports as he is a big Arizona Cardinals and Phoenix Suns fan while also enjoying the gym and spending time with friends and family.
