Eric and his wife Heidi were married July 2008. Together they have a son named Eli, and identical twin girls named Harper & Elliott born on August 17, 2016. Eric enjoys spending time with Heidi, making Eli laugh, playing Spades, hanging out with the youth, drinking coffee with college students, teaching the Bible to all, reading, life size teddy bears, yo-yos, and laughing at his own jokes. Eric says that if you’ve read this far, he’s impressed. On October 9, 2012 Eric was hired as SBC’s student pastor, ministering to both youth and college students.
