Pastor Eric Ek


While Eric grew up and went to all of his schools in Illinois (high school, undergrad, and seminary), a fun trivia fact is that he was born in New York. Yet, he and his family have strong ties to Michigan with his mom’s family in the Detroit area and having grown up attending family camp and working on staff at Portage Lake Covenant Bible Camp. After graduating in 2014 from North Park Theological Seminary, Eric has been at Faith since August of that same year. He enjoys most sports (especially hockey) and being active (participating in Crossfit), enjoys both the outdoors (camping adventures) as well as the indoors (hello Netflix/MCU/Star Wars!), enjoys music (playing a number of instruments), and enjoys connecting with students (over those things, some food, or their own passions).
