Erik is a recent graduate of the University of Vermont with a B.A. in Political Science and Music Technology. During his four years at UVM he was an active member and co-chair of the DREAM Program; a mentoring organization that pairs college students with children living in affordable housing. His favorite part about the program is that it created a space for UVM and Burlington’s community to act as one.

Erik’s passion for service began and flourished in the halls of our church. He is an alumni of MSYG, YG and Quest, a graduate of NCHS (’15) and has been a member of the church since his confirmation in 2011.

Erik is excited to work with Kelly Leather Antonson (Senior Youth Director) and continue our youth group’s ministry of service and justice. He hopes to build a strengthened community through fellowship, music, and an exploration of faith.

When he isn’t with us at church, Erik is an avid musician who loves to ski, hike, and spend time with friends and family.
