As a musician, Eric leads students to worship and praise through song and prayer. As a speaker, he brings the Gospel message of Christ's love and forgiveness to his audiences. As a youth minister, Eric encourages students to look within their Catholic faith for the answers to life's questions. Eric prides himself on his ability to customize his presentations to the needs and desires of the community that he is visiting. This allows for flexibility in all types of events whether it is a youth rally, a retreat, a day of reflection or just a straight concert with a testimony. The words of the Most Reverend Robert C. Morlino, Bishop of the Diocese of Madison, highlight Eric's ministry to teens. "Through inspiring song and faith-filled proclamation, Eric, by God's generous grace, invites our young people to meet Jesus in and through the Church and her Sacraments. He communicates clearly and effectively 'the beef' of our Catholic doctrine."
