After graduating from Liberty Baptist College, now Liberty University, with a BS degree in Pastoral Ministries, Eric attended Reformed Theological Seminary, where he earned a Master of Divinity Degree in 1986. While at Liberty, a good friend introduced him to Biblical thought in the form of Reformed theology using the Bible as his primary source of argument and supplementing it with high quality Christian literature. This combination of Bible study, conversation, and reading was blessed by the Holy Spirit to lead him to heartily embrace the Reformed position as Biblical.
Along with service in the church, Eric has been involved in Christian education since 1987. From 1991 to 2018, he labored at Covenant Academy in Macon, GA, where he has served as teacher, administrator, coach, principal, curriculum director, and Dean of Students.
