Growing up as a missionary kid in South Africa, Eric felt God’s call on his life to work with young people in the church and train up the next generation of world changers to love God and others. After getting his undergraduate degree, Eric returned to South Africa and served as a youth pastor in a local church in Johannesburg for three years. Since being back in America, Eric has been involved in youth and young adult ministry in Lancaster County for just over 5 years and been on the board of 2SOL for much of that time. Growing up in South Africa, Zimbabwe wasn’t just a neighboring country, but both countries are filled with people who would call both places home. Many of my closest friends grown up were from Zimbabwe and we got to experience first hand, the beauty and tragedy of the country. In 2SOL, two worlds, Southern Africa and Lancaster County collided, in a partnership that provides sustainable help to those in Zimbabwe and life changing skills and development for young people in the US. Eric lives in Lancaster City with his wife Jen and newborn son. Eric is currently working on his Masters of Divinity from Capital Seminary. He closely supports Liverpool FC and tries to stay up to date with how South Africa are doing in cricket and rugby.
