Formed for Good is a framework for men in search of meaning. Our aim is to recover the larger story God is writing so we can find our place in it. The story is not just about us but we each play a vital role.

Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works,¬†which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.” We are the sons of a good Father and we were made to do good work.

The heart of this ministry is best captured in a motto we’ve borrowed from the Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers. It is four simple words: “So others may live.”

The logo represents the two roles entrusted to us in the beginning of the story. God instructed us to cultivate and defend, hence the head of grain in the shape of a shield. Within that larger calling we each have very unique abilities and passions and therefore specific assignments.


My name is Erik Swenson and I am the Director of Content Creation. I dream big in countless directions.

My wife Heather is the Director of Mission and Vision. She is a beautiful and strong anchor and she keeps this circus under a tent.

We also have four strapping boys, a lovely daughter and a dog who eats cardboard.
