 Erik Reinertsen grew up in Duluth, MN, graduated with a degree in Education from UMD and began a teaching career in the Duluth public school district in 1996. He is married to his wife Jessica, and together they have 8 children. Erik became a follower of Jesus in 1998 and soon thereafter was led to pursue full-time ministry as a youth and young adult director at a local church. In 2009, Erik planted The Water’s Edge Community Church in Duluth where he continues pastoring today. Recently he re-entered the public school setting as the head girls’ basketball coach at Duluth Denfeld High School. Through his experiences teaching, ministering to youth and coaching, Erik offers a unique perspective about the reality of the university setting and what the next generation of leaders need in order to flourish.
