Ed became a committed follower of Christ at the age of 16. Sensing a call to the ministry, he went to Western Bible College (now Summit Pacific) to pursue his Bachelor degree and then to Regent College in Vancouver, BC for his graduate degree (M.C.S.)
After serving in two different Greater Vancouver Area churches, he stepped out to plant Calvary Chapel Sunshine Coast in 1999. During his 15 years there as pastor, the church saw healthy growth, a building purchase and other guys raised up in ministry. During those exciting years, he encouraged other men to follow the Lord’s leading to plant churches. For the past nine years he has hosted the Canadian Calvary Chapel Ministry Conference.
During the summer of 2014, Ed and his family moved to London Ontario with the desire to plant a new work. Ed has been married to his wife Cheryl for 27 years. They have three children; Justin, Brendan and Brianna.
