Pastors & Staff

eric whitley


Eric and and his wife, Stephanie, were both born and raised in Kentucky. They met in Lexington, KY after Eric graduated from Indiana University and Stephanie graduated both from Western Kentucky University (undergrad) and the University of Kentucky (grad school). In 2007, they got married, moved to Saint Louis, and started their lives together as Eric attended Covenant Seminary and Stephanie worked. In 2011, they were called to remain in Saint Louis where Eric started serving as an Assistant Pastor at Covenant Presbyterian Church. Right around that same time, their daughter Anna Katherine came along, then son Callan in 2012, son Lawson in 2014, and finally daughter Cora in 2017. Eric and Stephanie then moved to Bloomington in 2018 for Eric to become the RUF Campus Minister at Indiana University. In July 2023, Eric transitioned to become the pastor of Hope.

They enjoy spending time with their 4 crazy kids, trying new foods and restaurants, playing golf, going on dates, eating sushi, and catching the latest show on Netflix.
