"A 21st Century Virtual Visionary" Eric Nevins

How long did it take you to find your calling from God?  For Eric, it took 15 long years. But he arrived.  and now, he is living his purpose, as a 21st Century Virtual Visionary.  Come along on his journey, from actor to seminary student, to family man, to call center, to podcaster, to speaker, to visionary and so much more.  You will hear the journey of a man seeking to find rest and peace before a God, who was with him in his darkest hour, and the love of his life, there with him all along the way.
