About Eric

I have one wife and together we have five children — all boys. We have nothing breakable in our house, because it has already been broken! I am a dreamer and vision-caster with a sense of humor.

I envision Bent Tree being a church that trains, encourages, and resources church leaders around the world who are committed to New Covenant preaching where Christ is central, grace is lived out, and mission is prioritized.
