Erin’s love of children and youth came alive during her college years, working as a youth intern in a local congregation in Spokane, Washington. After a season of teaching middle school students in the classroom, Erin’s call to pastoral ministry to youth and their families led her to Princeton Theological Seminary for a Masters in Divinity. Erin spent six years as a Pastor for Youth Mission and Ministry at University Presbyterian Church in Seattle, Washington and five more years at Sammamish Presbyterian Church as the Associate Pastor for Youth Ministry. Erin and her husband, Chris, who is also a pastor, currently live in Glen Ellyn, Illinois with their two sons, Carter and Ryan. In addition to her work with Ministry Architects, Erin is a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and works part time in a private practice in Wheaton, Illinois.
