Pastor Ed is the son of missionary parents and surrendered his heart, mind and life to the Lord at an early age on a Sunday afternoon after thinking through the Spirit filled messages he received during Church school and a worship service. Ed responded to God’s call to ministry when in University. He met a very wonderful lady in a lunch line in Chicago which began an amazing friendship. Janet and Ed were married and God blessed them with three children, all of whom are now married to amazing friends. Ed completed graduate degrees at Westminster Theological Seminary, Princeton Theological Seminary and received his doctorate at Covenant Theological Seminary.
Ed enjoys good books, great art, and exceptional dark chocolate! Ed stays active with hiking, biking, racquetball, skiing, wood work and oil painting. He loves sharing special times connecting with God and people.
