Cheri grew up in Joliet Illinois with her parents and 3 sisters. She met Erik at church where their families became great friends. She attended Joliet Junior College for 2 years and then married Erik in 2004. As she worked in preschools she quickly discovered it was an area God gifted her in.
She has enjoyed serving alongside Erik in ministry for over 10 years. Her heart is to meet kids where they are and help them on their journey of discovering God’s plans for them. It is her joy to see kids not fall to the lies this world tells them but to believe they are fearfully and wonderfully made.
Cheri and Erik have 4 energetic kids that keep them humble and laughing. They enjoy doing life with local friends and visiting their families back in Illinois. Although Cheri dreads the laundry afterwards! She loves watching movies with her family while eating coconut flavored popcorn. They love family outings even if it’s just to Sam’s Club.
