Harvest Joliet, IL
Eric was not raised in the church, but at the age of 21 he surrendered his life to Jesus Christ and God radically changed him. He quickly got involved in small groups and began to faithfully serve the Lord in a local church.
As a lay person, he has led a number of small groups, a youth prison ministry, and an evangelism ministry. He has also been involved in ministering to men in the Cook County Jail. However, in August of 2002, God made it clear to him that it was time to pursue full-time ministry. Eric enrolled in Moody Bible Institute, graduated with a B.A. in 2008, and then participated in a pastoral internship at a local church. Following this, he was asked by Harvest Bible Fellowship to plant Harvest Joliet as the Senior Pastor and joyfully accepted!
Eric has a passion to see God bring together all types of people through the gospel of Jesus Christ, regardless of ethnic or socioeconomic background.
