When you hear about Eric’s experience and background with youth, it is pretty evident that teenagers are his passion! Working with Youth Unlimited and YFC since 1987, Eric’s focus has been to enrich the lives of youth through a myriad of endeavors including school involvement, coaching, club work, projects in Mexico and summer camps.
During his time at YU, Eric was the Area Director in Richmond for 22 years, the Ministry Operations Director for Greater Vancouver YU for seven years and the Executive Director for two years. Still focused on working with youth, Eric currently spends his time reaching youth in Surrey schools as well as filling the Western Canada Executive Director Coach role.
His passion is simple, “To see youth get closer to Jesus through their involvement with Youth Unlimited.” Eric’s an adventurer and a family guy. You will find him water skiing in the summer, snowboarding in the winter or hanging out with his wife, six kids, and five grandchildren whenever he can.
Together we can transform the world our youth live in—but we can’t do it without you.Take Action
