Erik grew up in the Twin Cities so he was glad to come back home to work at Wooddale Church after working as a Director of Facilities for a retail firm in another state.
Though he is a graduate of Minnesota State University and Concordia University (St. Paul), Erik chooses to root for the Minnesota Gopher hockey program and enjoys time spent recreating with his wife and three children doing anything outdoors. When time allows, Erik leverages that extra time feeding his passion for learning and reading anything that peeks his interest.
Erik’s Favorite verse:
“What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”— the things God has prepared for those who love him—1 Corinthians 2:9, NIV.
