Staff evangelist, Eric Briscoe, was saved at the age of 13 at Happy “T” Ranch in New Hampshire. He is a member of and grew up in the First Baptist Church located in Weymouth, Massachusetts. In this local church setting, Eric has served the Lord as an Elder, in the visitation ministry, conducting pulpit supply, serving on the pulpit committee and as chapel speaker for the Christian school and AWANA program.
He also studied at Massasort Community College, receiving an Associate Degree in 1971 and was immediately drafted into the Army where he served two years with the 82nd Airborne Division. A Bachelor of Arts Degree was earned in 1975 from Boston State College in Political Science and Math. God led Eric to a young lady by the name of Diane who would become his life partner, they were married in 1976. During 1981-1982, Eric attended Word of life School of Youth Ministries in the state of New York.
During student days at Word of life, Eric was introduced to the Open Air Campaigners ministry. It was in the spring of 1982 that the Lord made it clear that he was to do the work of an evangelist. That year, he joined the OAC Philadelphia branch as an evangelist. Then, in 1986, he became the Boston Branch Director. An additional ministry came Eric’s way as he was appointed OAC/USA Field Director in 1991.
