Mountain Ridge Ministries is a non-profit Christian ministry whose main objective is to provide inspiration, encouragement, and support to men and women of all walks of life with a special heart for families touched by developmental disabilities. Author and founder of Mountain Ridge Ministries, Laura Ollis, believes that her empathy and compassion for people’s needs comes from her own real life experiences.
For the past 25 years, Eric and Laura have devoted their lives to sharing the Gospel of Christ through their music and teaching. Eric and Laura are genuine people with a genuine love for God.
Eric has been a mainstay in Southern Gospel Music for 25 years. As pianist for the Dixie Melody Boys for 15 years, his music ministry fell on the ears of many across the nation. From small country churches to the Ralph Emory Show, Hee-Haw, and the Grand Ole Opry stage, people of all ages have come to love Eric. In 2004 Eric joined his ministry with that of the Whisnants from Morganton, N.C.
In September 2011, Eric embarked on a new journey, a family ministry with his wife Laura, whom he married in 1993. Having traveled so many miles, its great to be with my family, said Eric.
