Eric McCool was raised in San Antonio, Texas, where his life centered around the Baptist Church. His father was a minister, and he was active in the youth group. At the age of seventeen, he felt called to ministry, with a deep desire to serve God and shine the light of Christ onto the world. But right before going to college he experienced great doubt in God and religion. He turned to academics and science as alternative explanations, studying literature, philosophy and history.
He later studied Buddhism, shamanism, yoga, and Taoism, as well as permaculture and intentional community. He recently felt a renewal of his faith and calling to ministry, which he now views through a new lens. Eric lives in Marshall, North Carolina with his wife and three daughters. He works with Patrick Hennessy at Sacred Mountain Waters, and he is a founding member of LovEvolution Fellowship.
