About Eric

I am a husband, father of five, pastor, and proud Iowa-native.

My first book is Worthy: Celebrating the Value of Women, co-authored with Elyse Fitzpatrick. I also enjoy writing fiction. Having completed a novel and novella (both still unpublished), I am at work on a second novel and a youth adventure series for my children.

I’ve been writing worship songs for 15 years with Hymnicity (formerly Thousand Tongues)—including “Not in Me,” featured on The Gospel Coalition album “Songs for the Book of Luke.” I also dabble in general songwriting (with a preference for country and folk genres).

I’m privileged to serve on the Board of Directors for Risen Motherhood.

Social Media — I’d love to connect with you on Twitter, FacebookInstagram, and Amazon.

Church and Doctrinal Beliefs — I am a member of Grand Avenue Baptist Church in Ames, Iowa, and subscribe to its doctrinal statement (BFM 2000).

Enjoy the site. Don’t hear what I’m not saying.
