Eric Boyd

My name is Eric Amos Boyd Jr, and I am on a new journey that God has opened for me!! I am originally from Cheboygan, Michigan. Eric and Carmela Boyd are my parents and I have two younger siblings.  My brother Carson who is married to his wife Anna and they have three little ones Elijah, Eden, and Emerson. Whenever I get the chance to go home it really is great to see them, because it is just so awesome being an uncle. Then there is my baby sister Danielle and husband Bailey. The two of them live in the Bahamas, so I have an incredible vacation destination when I need to get away from the snow and cold of Michigan.

I graduated from Cheboygan Area high school in 2009 and I officially graduated from Grace Christian University in Grand Rapids in May of 2020. I have a Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies with a concentration in Youth Ministry. God called me into ministry at a younger age, but it was not until after I grew up a little and gained some life experience that I took it seriously and went to school. I am so thrilled to see what obedience to God will bring to this journey of life.

I chose to focus on youth because when I was growing up I had so many people in my life that showed me Jesus. The impact each one made has changed my life forever. The youth are the future of the Christian faith and the Church. I want to be the one to now show them the love Jesus has for each one of them, so that they can take steps in the future to change the world for Jesus. I am so excited for the new things he has in store at YFC and the Laker and Owen-Gage communities and all the new relationships I get to build with all of you!
