Eric & Juli Smith
Called into ministry as a young teen, Eric Smith graduated from Central Bible College (CBC), Springfield, MO in 1988 with a B.A. in Biblical Studies. Over the past twenty-six years, Eric has served the Kingdom of God as a Youth Pastor, Worship Leader and Senior Pastor. Juli Smith, Eric’s wife of 27 years who also attended CBC and Evangel University, has worked alongside Eric in every aspect of ministry.
Both Eric and Juli were raised in church and are passionate for the presence of God and consider themselves revivalists. While they are self-described as being a blend of traditional and contemporary, they desire to see the power of a supernatural God intersect with our daily lives. Their passion is to reach those who need Christ’s saving power and to disciple believers into a radical, on-fire relationship with Jesus Christ. Eric is author of the book The Fire Must Never Go Out available HERE.
