Eric & Rosalinde AuCoin recently celebrated their Golden 50th Anniversary with friends and family. The memorable event was held at their home in New Port Richey, Florida, where they retired last year.

For the past 24 years the couple made their home in Naperville and Yorkville, IL. During all of their married life, the couple was deeply involved in several Christian television ministries, including The Christian Broadcasting Network, The PTL Television Network, and The Total Living Network, formerly known as Chicago's TV-38. Eric, an ordained minister, served as a broadcast executive and TV producer. They regularly provided music ministry and often hosted programs for the networks. Rosalinde is also a published songwriter and gifted composer of Christian music and the couple often sang and ministered at churches and gatherings across the nation.

For the past 10 years the couple led music and worship activities at First Baptist Church of Big Rock, IL, where Rev. AuCoin also served as Interim Pastor following the retirement of long-time Pastor, Dr. Eugene Frost.

Eric AuCoin and Rosalinde AuCoin (King) were united in Holy Matrimony on March 16, 1963 at Bethel Assembly of God in Hampton, Virginia. They have 2 adult children and 5 grandchildren.
