Meet Erik…

I’m incredibly excited to return to the staff here at ISU Wesley for a second year of interning! This will be my sixth year of being involved with the ISU Wesley Foundation (four years as a student and one year of interning while finishing classes), and I’m so grateful for every experience I’ve had here.

ISU Wesley is where I experienced my call to ministry. I came into college planning to be an actuary at State Farm, but by the end of my sophomore year I had realized I was called to pastoral ministry. Ever since I experienced this call, the people here have been incredibly supportive. When I’m doubting my call, it’s not hard to find some people to talk to that help remind me why I’m doing what I’m doing.

When I’m not working, I’m often spending my time watching movies or TV shows, listening to music, reading, playing video games, or playing music. I was in the Big Red Marching Machine and the ISU Pep Band for four years as a trombone player, so to say I’m a fan of ISU sports (especially football and basketball) is an understatement. 🙂 I also play a bit of piano and percussion, so you may catch me in the worship band at Merge or Hope Church. If you want to know anything else, just ask!
