Speaker - Eric Treuil
Eric & Anabelle serve as executive directors of UL Chi Alpha. In addition they oversee the Internship Program (Diversity Project) and all of Chi Alpha in Louisiana and the South Central Area (Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and New Mexico). Eric directs the athletic outreach Cajuns 4 Christ and also serves as Chaplin for the Ragin Cajun football team.
Eric grew up on the West Bank of New Orleans - but it wasn't until he was a Junior (1982) at Nicholls State University that he came to full faith in Jesus Christ. Shortly after his conversion he helped pioneer Chi Alpha at NSU. Upon graduation he believed that God was calling him to stay and work with Chi Alpha at NSU. It was during this time that he met this wonderful Panamanian girl (Anabelle Elisa Garcia) - she gave her life to Jesus during this time and a year and a half later they were married on December 14, 1985. They moved to UL (then USL) in 1987 to re-pioneer Chi Alpha and have served as lead pastors since that time. They have three adult children: Ana Cristina, Victoria Isabelle, Benjamin Andrew. Our family hobbies include traveling and eating out - we are anti-chain restaurant and enjoy the more ethnic the experience the better!
