Director of Small Groups
Eric Krajewski joined the team as Director of Small Groups in January 2018. He has a fire for small groups at Aspen Ridge Church, in part, because they literally changed his life.

The study of theology and Christian apologetics is of particular interest to him as he works at the craft of evangelism. In addition to his ministry here, Eric also has a thriving private law practice. When he is not building small groups or representing the rights of clients, he spends his time being a loving husband to his wife Danielle and devoted father to his three boys. When he can find the time, he delights in fishing, hunting, hiking and camping in the beautiful mountains of Colorado.
