Nothing is boring when Aric is involved. He keeps everyone on their toes with his passionate preaching, insightful bible studies, games, songs, jokes, and new ideas. He is also our caring pastor, who brings communion to every shut-in monthly, visits those in the hospital, makes house-calls, and rearranges his schedule to have coffee with anyone who wants to talk.
Born in Cheyenne, Wyoming, Aric’s family moved to California when he was young so he grew up in the surf and sun. A drama geek, a history buff, a gamer and a writer he took his passions with him around the world in travels to Taiwan, Thailand, Italy, Turkey, and many other places. He studied other religions and cultures and found that experience to deepen his own faith and commitment to his family roots in the Presbyterian Church.
He is married to Stacia, a linguist and traveler herself. Together they have two boys Avery and Curran. They make joyful trouble like any kids their age, but they can be controlled with the correct application of tickle-fu. He can be found on the internet hosting the virtual pub Two Friars and a Fool.
