A bit of Pastor Eric’s history . . . He grew up just outside of Ticonderoga, New York in the beautiful Adirondack region. He met his wife, Sarah, at Houghton College in the Fall of 1996. They married in August of 1999. Today, Eric and Sarah share the joys of family with their two daughters, Grace and Eliana and their two sons, Jacob and Gabriel. Lots of fun!

Eric served eight years as the JH and SH Youth Director before he became the Lead Pastor at TCC.  He practiced as a School Psychologist in the Spencerport School District for 14 years. In July of 2013 he entered full-time ministry at the church. Undergraduate studies at Houghton College included Psychology, Sociology, and Education. He earned a Masters Degree in School Psychology from Bucknell University and he holds a Masters of Divinity from Northeastern Seminary. He was ordained as a Deacon in 2008 and a Priest in 2010.

Eric loves God and loves people. Introducing people to the one true source of hope and purpose is his passion. He enjoys any outdoor adventure, all sports, reading, and talking about life over coffee. Don’t tell anyone but he is addicted to good coffee!!
