Eric Hancox has been the Pastor at Covenant of Grace ARP since 2014. He is a graduate of Westminster College (B.S. in Accounting) and Reformed Theological Seminary (M.Div.). He worked for seven years as an accountant before sensing God’s call to ministry. He loves studying and teaching the Word, reading the Puritans, weightlifting, and spending time with his family.
Eric’s passion is for connecting the mind and heart in the Word of God. He longs to see the body of Christ growing together into the likeness of Christ – building one another up in love, reaching out to the lost with the gospel of salvation, and bringing glory to God as each member carries out his or her role in the life of Christ’s Church (cf. Eph 4:15-16; 1 Pet 4:10-11). To this end, he strives for a ministry that can be summarized with the words of the apostle Paul: “[Christ] we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ” (Col 1:28).
Eric is married to Laura, who also graduated from Westminster in 2004. Laura is a wonderful mom who loves to learn and enjoys classic literature. Eric and Laura have three boys, Maury, Abram and Ewan, and two girls, Olive and Eila.
