After serving as CODʼs Lead Pastor for 20 years, Ed transitioned to his new role of Assistant Pastor of Discipleship and Community Development. Ed enjoys teaching the Bible for life-change and training and equipping leaders. “I did not grow up in a Christian home,” Ed says. “This has marked me with a deep appreciation of the Lordʼs 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 nine grandchildren.
