Eric Krause, Middle School Pastor

Eric grew up in Philipsburg, Pennsylvania where he went to high school and met his high school sweetheart, Deanna. After high school Eric attended college at Valley Forge Christian College in Phoenixville Pennsylvania where he received a B.A. in Youth Ministry. In 2009 Eric and Deanna were married and lived in Harleysville Pennsylvania, while Eric served as Youth Pastor for 5 years at a church in Allentown Pennsylvania. In 2011 Eric and Deanna left Pennsylvania to move to Colorado in pursuit of what they felt God was asking them to do, and have been serving at a local church with the teenagers since then. To Eric, college football is the only football that exists and is an avid Penn State fan. Other interests of Eric's are baseball, lifting, hiking, and anything that includes his wife and dogs. Eric believes there is nothing greater than experiencing and having an encounter with the Resurrected Christ, and strives in all things to help students and families re-orient themselves to see Him at work in the world around us and how He is asking us to partner with Him.
