Eric Willis is the son of a pastor, having grown up in the proverbial “glass house” since the age of seven. As God’s plan unfolded, it became apparent that life experiences and God’s mercies would burn a passion to minister to fellow ministers around the globe struggling through ministry conflict.
As the Pastor of Minister Development at Bent Tree Bible Fellowship, Eric oversees the Pastoral Launching Pad (PLP) 12-month residency for pastor training and the Bent Tree Network of affiliated churches. As founder of Reclaim Leadership, Eric encourages and coaches ministry leaders to focus on their identity in Christ through the difficulties of ministry; challenging Christian leaders to rediscover their calling and reignite their passion to pursue it.
He continues that focus today with Training Churches in coming alongside pastors and church staff, coaching them with great resources and care.
Eric and his wife Jennifer reside in Carrollton, Texas. Their 25-year marriage has produced five sons; one college graduate, one in college, two in high school, and one in middle school.
