Eric Hoskins

Interim Worship Director

Eric is from Knoxville, Tennessee, but has been in Sarasota for 8 years now.  He’s married to Sarah and has five kids: Adelaides, Campbell, Ellie, Mollie, and Eli.  He graduated from the University of Tennessee and pursued a masters degree in Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary.  Before coming to Gulf Gate Church, Eric spent 17 years on staff with Young Life and 5 years as a Contemporary Worship Director and Director of Young Adults Ministry.  In addition to the time he spends at Gulf Gate, he is also a fitness instructor.  In his spare time he works out, watches CrossFit, and reads.  He loves chicken wings, but doesn’t believe that boneless wings are a real thing; those are just nuggets with sauce on them.
