Eric Swanson

A bit about me....I have a passion for engaging churches worldwide in the needs and dreams of their communities so a to bring about spiritual and societal transformation. My wife Liz and I served with Campus Crusade for Christ for twenty-five years before joining the staff of Leadership Network where I currently work as a "missional specialist," serving as Leadership Community Director for Externally Focused Churches, Missional Renaissance and Global Connection Churches working with scores of missional churches around North America. I also often work with leaders around the world who are focused on kingdom transformation. In 2007 I completed a D.Min. degree in "Transformational Leadership in the Global City" from Bakke Graduate University. With Rick Rusaw I am the co-author of The Externally Focused Church, Living a Life on Loan, The Externally Focused Life, and The Externally Focused Quest. With my long-time friend, Sam Williams, I also co-authored To Transform a City: Whole Church, Whole Gospel, Whole City. I've been married to Liz for over 35 years, have three married children, seven grandchildren and resides outside of Boulder Colorado. You can contact me at
