Dear Pastor Search Committee,
My name is Eric Maggio. My wife, Michelle, my son Tyler, and I are currently looking for a new church to serve. I have been in pastoral ministry since 1999. I was licensed in 2000 and ordained in 2002. I received my Masters of Divinity from Baylor University’s Truett Seminary in 2003. I have been blessed to be a part of God’s work in the ministry for the past twenty years.
My wife and I planted several churches over the years including Church Without Walls in 2005 and Church at the Beach in 2008. I also served as the Senior Pastor of “The Light Church” in Chula Vista (pictured below). There I was in charge of preaching, Wednesday night Bible study, staff meetings, hospital visitations, weddings, funerals, baptisms, and a major renovation in a multi-staffed church. Over the last several years, we have seen growth in reaching young families, youth and children. We have had an unprecedented number of baptisms since I have been there as well. After a mega church opened a satellite campus close to our church the Light lost several families and was no longer able to support a full time pastor. Not wanting to be a financial burden to the church we have now found ourselves in a season of waiting for the Lord to lead us to the right church to serve. We believe God will guide us to a place that will not only be the right fit, but a place where we can put down roots for a long time. We are actively in prayer to discern which church that is.
I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you to learn more about your vision and to answer any questions you may have. For a sample of my sermons scroll down. For video testimonials or more information please look around my website. May God bless you in your search!
