Erik’s heart was drawn toward involvement in eternity-centered global initiatives since his early years. Over the years, he has had the privilege of residing and serving in several places and capacities in SE Asia. Thus, he understands well the challenges and blessings of living and working as a global worker. Although a portion of his heart still resides abroad, Erik and his wife currently live in South Carolina with their three spectacular children. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, his desire is to strategically journey with those in full-time cross-cultural initiatives to encourage and support them so that they are able to pour into others from the overflow of their own lives. Seeing individuals, marriages, families and teams restored, refreshed, and revitalized so that they can best fulfill their various roles and is what keeps Erik in the ballgame.
