How I came into relationship with Jesus Christ
What I do at Mosaic Community
I preach the Bible most Sundays, cast vision for our church, lead our staff, connect with people, counsel, and oversee the doctrine, direction, and discipline in our church alongside the other elders of Mosaic Community.
Why I do what I do
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree with a language emphasis in Greek from Moody Bible Institute.
I married my wife Barbie when I was 21 and she was 20 back in 1995. Next to Jesus - she truly is God’s greatest gift to me! I’m so blessed to have 4 precious daughters with such fun, creative and loving personalities: Corinn, Kiera, Karis and Kendra.
People would be surprised if they knew...
My official name was: “Erk” until I realized it and had it changed at 21! The doctor wrote my name sloppy (combined the “i” and “c”) on my birth certificate.
If you had to eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Panang Curry (extra spicy) with chicken and wide rice noodles, Tom Ka soup, and a side of lychee fruit.
A favorite childhood memory
I LOVED breakdancing with my friends and before audiences!
I can talk like Donald Duck, out of both sides of my mouth - at the same time.
