Eric J. Christian - Pastoral Counselor, Speaker & Eagle Coach

Team Grace welcomes Eric & Genie Christian as fellow members.


As a certified speaker, coach and trainer for the John Maxwell Team, Eric couldn’t be more excited about the message he shares with others every day. One of the things that drives his passion for leadership every single day is the fact that he gets to add value to people for a return that pleases God.

Eric’s coaching involves the ability to understand you: to think how you think, and understand your perspective. From this benchmark, he will place another perspective on top of yours – stretching and growing you to gently see a more empowering way. As a certified John Maxwell coach, Eric can see what you are going through now and what is up ahead. Coaching is foreseeing, paving the way, coming alongside you while helping you achieve goals and overcome limiting paradigms.


Eric believes we can all live a life of excellence; a life that is not just mediocre. Eric believes that desire is in each one of us. It is a journey of self-exploration and personal development.  Eric utilizes a pastoral orientation toward counseling. He looks to the wisdom that comes from God's Word to guide others in dealing with human problems.  In addition, Eric desires to guide others to a person, Jesus Christ, and not to a theory or experience as a way to navigate change. He can provide pastoral counseling in the following areas: individual, couple, marital, premarital, church staff, conflict resolution, how to have a joy filled life, and more.
