Erik was first ambushed by God’s love one Sunday here on Timberline Road in 2013 at the age of 20. This happened shortly after getting involved in a small group with Chi Alpha, a campus ministry at CSU. A recent graduate from Colorado State University, he has been involved in the Timberline organization since, serving and attending services at the Timberline Old Town campus. Erik graduated this past December with a Sociology degree and plans to use this knowledge in ministry long-term.
This February Erik has plans to begin discipling college students in a sensitive country in the region of Eurasia. After being on leadership with Chi Alpha at CSU for the past two years he hopes to use the skills he learned from this in campus ministry overseas.
God first placed it on Erik’s heart to go on the two-week trip Chi Alpha has every summer, but the more he prayed about it he realized God was calling him to serve for a longer period of time. Starting with a year and a-half commitment, Erik says he won’t be surprised if he ends up giving his life to advancing God’s Kingdom there.
Hopeful of growing more intimately in his own relationship with the Lord, Erik also knows God will use his own story of being redeemed from a life of drugs and alcohol to impact the students he will be serving. Please join Erik in praying for more students to surrender to God’s love, and as a result, take on roles of leadership in the ministry, “as we watch God heal that nation, one broken soul at a time”.
