After graduating with a degree in youth ministry, Eric moved to Chicago to begin working with high school students at an inner city youth ministry called Inner City Impact. He met Leah there when she was doing a summer internship in the business office. They were married in 2007 and continued to live and serve in the heart of Chicago.
After six years in ministry, God called Eric away from parachurch ministry into the role of Youth Pastor in Lawton, MI. While serving in this position he finished his Master of Arts in Christian Leadership from Liberty University and was ordained in the Fellowship of Evangelical Churches.
In 2011, he was called by God to plant a church in the area where Leah was from. He was affirmed by the spiritual leadership of his church and by Converge Church Planting Assessment.
Through their love for cities in general, and Pittsburgh in particular, God has drawn them to the city for the purpose of planting a gospel-centered community of believers who will glorify God in worship, love others in community, and serve the world in love. We invite you to join us in taking the good news of Jesus Christ to the people of Pittsburgh.
