Ed and Kim recently celebrated their sixteen year wedding anniversary. They met at FBC Snellville, GA, in the fall of 1998 and were married one year later. Since being married they have lived in Atlanta, GA, Wake Forest, NC, Powellsville, NC and Kingsland, GA. They have two children; Kaitlin and Ashley. Ed is a native of Pensacola, FL and the son of a retired school teacher. Before answering the call into vocational ministry, he was a civilian flight instructor and then a pilot for an air courier service in Orlando, FL. He graduated from Luther Rice Bible College with a Bachelor of Science in Biblical studies and from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity with Biblical Languages.
Kim was born and raised in Atlanta, GA. She graduated from Clayton State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing. She has served as a cardio telemetry nurse at both DeKalb Medical Center in Atlanta, GA and Raleigh Community Hospital in Raleigh, NC. Kim is now answering the highest and most rewarding calling of her life as a stay at home mom, raising their two daughters. Kim enjoys walking, going to the beach, reading and camping.
Ed has multiple interests such as sport aviation, sailing and anything outdoors. Moving back to Florida has afforded Ed the opportunity to fulfill a long time ambition. He recently completed his Open Water SCUBA diving certification and is now enjoying exploring Central Florida’s many dive spots. Ed enjoys hanging out with friends, watching old war movies, but most of all telling people about Jesus.
Ed holds a deep passion for global disciple-making. “God is passionate for His own glory, and uses his people to make that
glory known to the nations. God has uniquely equipped every believer and every church to make His glory known. We will only realize our full potential as individuals and as congregations when we fully devote ourselves to this calling.”
Ed practices what he preaches through his personal involvement in both local mission projects and foreign mission work in North Africa and Central America.
