“I did not grow up in a Christian home,” Ed says. “This has marked me with a deep appreciation of the Lord’s power to transform lives, families and cultures. When Jesus Christ steps in, nothing should be the same.”
Ed is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary and “in his younger years” served as an officer in the United States Army and a firefighter for the U.S. Forest Service.
Ed and Judy have three children and seven grandchildren.
