What Ministry / Group do you Volunteer With?

Eric serves in OASIS with the High School Sophmore boys.
When did you start coming to Canyon Springs?
2013 – A couple of months before we got married.
What made you decide to Volunteer?
John Sedgwick encouraged Eric to help with the first House Boats trip as a boat driver. One day at church there was an announcement for men to lead in OASIS. After discussing it with Chad a few times, and praying about it, Eric knew it was something he was being called to do.
Jodie had grown up in the church and has always played a part in the Children’s Ministry and felt it was time to dip her feet in Children’s Ministry and get more connected at Canyon Springs. So last summer, when volunteers were needed to help, she jumped in.
What is your favorite part about Volunteering?
Eric loves the free vacations! (LOL). In all seriousness, it’s growing deeper with the youth and seeing them grow in their faith year after year. Jodie’s favorite part of volunteering is all the kids she gets to see. Sometimes that reminder of having a childlike faith puts things into perspective. Little do these kids know, they impact me just as much as I hope to make an impact on them.

Stuff & Random Tidbits
What is your favorite food / restaurant in San Diego?
Eric’s favorite restaurant is El Patron’s and Jodie’s favorite “food” is Reese’s.
What is one “interesting fact” about you?
Eric likes to brew his own beer, and we have some on tap at the house at all times. Jodie loves to bake — it doesn’t matter what it is. They have also run TWO Disney half marathons together, and they believe it’s safe to say they have retired from half marathons. However; THEY HAVE NOT retired from all things Disney!
