About Erica

Rev. Erica Lea-Simka is a Christian minister with over 10 years of experience serving as a missionary and pastor. She has served primarily Baptist congregations in Wyoming, Texas, North Carolina, and Washington, D.C. She currently serves as pastor of Albuquerque Mennonite Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Erica grew up in Houston, TX, the middle of 3 children. Erica’s family instilled core values in her: kindness, faith, love, hope, and service. Church and the library were her favorite places to go. She sensed a call to vocational ministry during her youth group days and has been serving in ministry since.

When not at church or serving the community, Erica enjoys cooking, walking, watching movies, traveling, and time with her sweetheart.
