Fish Family

Erik passionately pursues the spontaneous expansion of church planting movements (CPM) in the Western context. His journeys among the First Nations people of North America inspired his love for planting Jesus-centered movements that bring transformation to families and communities. He was mentored by Dr. George Patterson and serves as a coach with Dr. Patterson’s People of Yes.

Erik has authored several discipleship books used in multiple languages and is the founder of the Student Church Movement.

He recently created the DiscipleX initiative, a call to equip and send disciple-making multipliers to the ends of the earth.

Erik’s messages on the simplicity of Jesus’ call to make disciples have been featured on platforms such as TBN’s Top Three and iDisciple by Family Christian Bookstores. As an evangelist and mission strategist, he has empowered next generation leaders around the world to multiply disciples and simple church planting movements.

Erik and his wife have four children. Their love for friends, travel, and Jesus take them on many adventures together.





Erik Fish lives what he teaches! Erik is a highly respected voice in the body of Christ calling us to multiplication of the kingdom from a place of sincerity, authenticity, and love. He holds the line on Biblical truths and yet calls us to think outside the box to reach the millions!

— Andy Byrd, YWAM Kona, Co-Founder, Fire and Fragrance, Circuit Riders


Over the years we’ve tried to crack the code for what it looks like to disciple kids in high schools. Erik breaks things down so simply. Through his training, we’ve been able to take groups of hundreds of kids and start discipling them personally. I personally recommend and endorse Erik and the tools God has given him for the body of Christ to make disciples!”

–Brian Barcelona, Founder One Voice Student Mission


Unique” fits Erik Fish. What he’s doing to multiply simple churches among college students and post-moderns stands out from the usual same-old. He overcomes the common snags with positive, insightful approaches.

– Dr. George Patterson, missionary, author, and professor, Western Seminary


Erik’s training gave me a new vision of what our ministry was called to be, new strategies for how to get there, and new tools to make it become a reality. Erik’s insights and mentoring are amazing gifts for redirecting and re-energizing people to live out the calling of the Great Commission by teaching the simplicity of Jesus’ calling to go and make disciples.

— Chris Reeves, Reboot Combat Recovery


Erik brings forth incredible simplicity and accessibility to the gospel, just the way Jesus intended it. Disciples making disciples through relationship … who would have thought?

— Leah, NY


Erik and Jen’s training was highly relevant to the post-Christian culture of our city. We had our church paradigms shifted in the most amazing ways! Erik and Jen equipped us to be intentional in our relationships and to foster simple churches right where non-believers hang out. We believe God gave us a blueprint for revival in our city. He has been moving ever since!  

— Stan and Allison Matusz, Ithaca, NY


I would highly encourage anyone to use Erik’s resources as well as to work with Erik directly.  Like almost no one else I know, he can help you, your church or your ministry mobilize many in organic ways to see people embrace Jesus for the first time and to see existing Jesus followers make disciples.  I give him my highest recommendation and regard.”

— Jeremy Story, founder Campus Renewal Ministries


What Erik has learned through getting outside the conventional walls of church and the way God has graced him to communicate make him worth listening to if you are interested in mentoring leaders and multiplying movements.

— David Hill, church planter, Boston

  1. Great to hear you Erik at Newforms Gathering. I was the 60 year old “young man” who was in tears after what you shared about the history & reaching First Nation people.
    Thank you for your teaching especially the first part of waiting & praying before you go.
    I’m looking at reaching international people in my neighbourhood & workplace in Nottingham. I particularly love Iranians & East & West Africans. I’m off to see Azmera my wife in Ethiopia on Christmas Eve & hoping next year to negotiate her visa to come to UK.
    All the best to you & yours
