Children’s Pastor

Eric Stender is an author and children’s pastor in Huntington, Indiana. I first met Eric when I was asked to do a book review on his first book The Samaritan Perspective. After reading Eric’s first book, I admired the concept he uses as a writer when telling the story of individuals who suffered through betrayal, false accusations, and much more. Eric has always given you an aha moment when he begins telling a story because he puts all his passion into it.

He began writing to deal with peer pressure and other emotions we all dealt with as a teenager. He mentioned that it all started with a green spiral notebook. Most of his writing revolved around life and love. During his senior year in high school he was often teased for being romantic and deep in his writing, but he kept at it. From there, his writing was based on a free thought and each time, the results were inspirational and admired by those around him.  In a college composition class, Eric would present his stories in class, most people in his class would stay to hear what he had written and Eric mentioned how that was really encouraging.

All though he never finished his original book, he took his talent and began to inspire youth through story as a Children’s pastor. His goal is to make the bible fun for them by teaching them how to become the story by acting out different stories of the bible. When teaching the story of Daniel and the Lion’s Den, he told the story from the perspective of the lion, which is an interesting twist to storytelling. From that experience, Eric decided to use that same concept and begin writing books.

When someone is put into a situation where they are betrayed by those they love or a false accusation is put out there about them, it is not an easy situation to deal with. In Eric’s second book, “The Joseph’s Perspective,” he talks about the betrayal of Joseph’s brother’s and how jealousy pushed them to sell him as a slave. Little did they know, he would end up at the top, 2nd only to the Pharaoh/King. Like Joseph, many people go through hard times and during those times, they don’t feel they are able to persevere through to their purpose. It’s takes strength to be humble enough to go through something and stay positive that it will work out for the good.

I admire Eric’s work as writer. He proves through writing his stories that not all is lost even though most is given. Eric is currently working on a third book and he and his wife just opened their first business called Covered in Hope, which is a baby and children’s clothing store.
