Director of Music
The director of the church choir at Common Ground since 1989, Frank’s first experience with choral music came from singing in his father’s church choir (he is, in fact, a fourth-generation Methodist choir director). Frank has been teaching vocal music at Cambridge-Isanti High School since 1985. A graduate of the Jamestown College (ND), he also holds a Masters of Music Degree in Choral Conducting from the University of Minnesota. Frank believes that the choir at Common Ground is a wonderful community that provides a service opportunity for people who love to sing, and enhances the worship experience of the congregation.
Director of Multimedia and Digital Outreach
Eric has been in various technology positions since the mid-90’s, but says working at Common Ground is the most fulfilling of any of them. Eric enjoys creative thinking and brainstorming ways to facilitate getting Common Ground’s message to the masses.
