Eric Huffman is the Lead Pastor of The Story Houston, a four year-old congregation of over 800 people who are on a mission to inspire non-religious people to follow Jesus. Eric is also the author of 40 Days of Doubt: Devotions for the Skeptic (Abingdon Press, 2018) and the host of the Maybe God Podcast, where he tackles the toughest questions non-religious people are asking. In its first year of production, Maybe God episodes were downloaded over 70,000 times by listeners in over 40 countries across the world.
Over the past 20 years, Eric and his wife, Geovanna, have planted two campus ministries and four new congregations reaching thousands of young people in Louisiana, Missouri, and Texas. Eric’s passion is to lead new generations of educated and non-religious skeptics to honestly consider the life-altering love of God in Jesus Christ.
Eric has recently been featured in three different stories in the Houston Chronicle, and in her review of 40 Days of Doubt for Good News Magazine, Elizabeth Glass Turner wrote, “This book from Abingdon has the makings of a classic. And right now, it is urgently needed, as much as intellectual honesty always is.”
A sought-after speaker, Eric has served as a guest contributor for the KSBJ and NGen radio evening shows, the Art of the Sermon Podcast, and the Compass Podcast. His previous speaking engagements include the Explore Calling Conference, The Louisiana Annual Conference, the North Carolina Preaching Festival, and the New Room Conference.
Eric and Geovanna live near downtown Houston with their children, Zaira and Koen.
