What We Do

Church Services/Youth Events/Community Outreach:

Eric will come to your Church and preach and paint for your sunday morning service, special services, youth services, outreaches and the list goes on. What makes Eric unique is that even though outside the box he is widely accepted from traditional, non-traditional, young, old, searching and found.



The goal is to have your group leave changed, inspired and with a renewed sense of purpose in Christ. Eric will partner with YOU to catapult YOUR theme or vision for the week or weekend by using different artistic mediums to powerfully convey God’s truth. Eric has the uncanny ability to take a room full of strangers and through his interactions and teachings unify them into a community of people. To many to list retreats and camps nationally and internationally.



Eric’s multi-dimensional roles are a perfect fit for conferences and conventions. Whether teaching a seminar or workshop, presenting live art during corporate worship or your keynote speaker, Eric will add a refreshing visual dimension to your conference or convention. This visual dimension allows the message to be supported when words cannot speak loud enough and continues to move the body of Christ forward within the visual arts by inspiring the next generation. Just some of the conferences/conventions that Eric has presented at include: National Youth Leaders Convention, National Methodist Youth Convention, National Evangelical Free Conference, National Christian Education Convention, National Worship Arts Conference, National Youth Ministry Conference, Group’s Simply Youth Ministry Conference, Youth Specialties Youth Ministry Conference, YC Canada in Edmonton, Manitoba and Newfoundland, National Pentecostal Assemblies of God Canada and long list of various State and District Denominational Conventions.


Public School Assemblies:

We need to go where the hurting kids are. No One Underground simply becomes Painting Hope and partners with communities to provide value-based public school assembly programs. While using the power of art Eric gives each message the he chance to be heard by students. Eric has partnered with Bob Lenz, Reggie Dabbs, Youth Alive, Youth for Christ, 7 project and many campus ministries to bring truth in a medium widely accepted. Using humor, art and powerful stories Eric stirs up what lays dormant and leaves students inspired. A night outreach usually is held the evening of the school assemblies at a partnering Church or community center.


College Ministries/Chapels:

College students and those seeking an education in ministry often need to be reminded that with God there is NO BOX and ministry can take new forms. Just a few of those who’s students have been inspired by Eric are: North Central University - MN, Eastern University - PA, Indiana Wesleyan University - IN, Southwest Baptist University - MO, Liberty University - WV, Anderson University - IN, Kentucky Christian - KY, William Jessup University - CA, Roberts Wesleyan - NY, Bethel - MN, Colorado Christian University - CO, Southern Nazarene University - OK, Greenville - IL, Tabor College - KS and a long list of Campus Crusade for Christ chapters and evening events.



Eric is available for live art presentations and short keynote addresses for live concert events and tours. What makes Eric perfect for this setting is the harmonious balance between live art performance and traditional public address. Eric has the unique ability, through the visual live-art performance, to prevent a live concert audience from going into “speaker mode.” Eric has shared the stage and presented with a exhaustive list of today’s Christian Bands.
