Meet Dr. Emerson Eggerichs
Dr. Eggerichs was the senior pastor of East Lansing Trinity church from 1980 to 1999. He loved the pastorate in this college town with nearly 45,000 students. When he came, the church had 450 in attendance, and when he left over 2,000 attended. He oversaw a paid staff of 40. He also initiated a building program, relocating Trinity Church on 70 beautiful acres in the Lansing area. That was completed in the year 2000.
Excited and burdened about male and female communication, Dr. Eggerichs launched the Love and Respect Conferences in August 1999 to serve husbands and wives. He and his wife Sarah travel the country conducting the marriage conferences. Focus on the Family is sponsoring many of the Love and Respect Conferences across the nation.
Married since 1973, he and Sarah have three adult children - Jonathan, David, and Joy.
