Eric has been in full-time ministry for over four years and has been the executive pastor at Violet since January 2020. Eric is a Pickerington graduate and still calls Pickerington home. He and his wife, Kelly, were married in 2003 and have been blessed with three children: Aiden, Elizabeth, and Jonathan. He enjoys spending time with his family and friends, diving into new podcasts, serving his community, watching Ohio State football, and following all things Philadelphia sports related. When he’s not at a local ballfield or ice rink cheering on one of his children’s sports teams, you can usually find him around a coffee pot connecting with an old friend or making a new one.
