Eric Rutherford

Eric Rutherford longs to see the next generation equipped with the biblical tools and understanding necessary for them to make disciples of their next generation. He started Entrusting the Faith in order to provide a platform for equipping families and churches with these tools.

Growing and faithfully serving Christ and your family does not just happen. Through 20 years of marriage, Eric has learned that continually growing and serving Christ and your family requires intentionality and a willingness to learn from others.

Father to three delightful children, Eric is the author of Leading Well at Home: How Husbands and Fathers Can Biblically Lead Their Families. He earned a Master’s of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and is currently an active member of a local church in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, where he and his wife, Rachel, teach sixth graders and lead a small group. You will often find Eric and his family reading together or having a movie night at home.

Legacies That Matter: How to Carry Out the Godly Call of a Husband and Father

We all leave some kind of legacy for our families. The legacy we leave greatly depends on our actions and the course we set. If we ignore Christ’s calling on our lives as a husband and father, we will leave a wake of worldliness that will negatively affect our children and grandchildren. If we pursue Christ and model this walk for our children, we will point future generations towards the gospel.
Even though we cannot provide salvation for our children, we can point them to Christ.
Join Eric as he discusses the importance of being a biblical husband and father along with how to implement steps to build a legacy that reflects Christ.

What Seeds are We Sowing in the Lives of Our Families

Have you ever planted a garden? If so, what did you plant? Did you plant kale, but expect to harvest tomatoes? Have you ever walked through an orchard expected to find apples growing on a peach tree?
If those examples sound crazy, why is it we often expect similar results from our families and our walk with Christ? Do our actions differ from our expectations?
Join Eric as he discusses three key areas in our lives that can easily cause us to reap different results than what we desire and how we can take the next right step in realigning our lives to reflect Christ.
