Pastor Ed has a vision to lead Victory Church to become an increasingly dynamic and multicultural community of worshipers who will touch the Philadelphia region with the presence and power of God.
Pastor Ed received his MDiv degree from Oral Roberts University School of Theology and Missions and was recognized by faculty as the Master of Divinity Student of the Year. He earned his undergraduate degree from Centre College (Danville, KY). Prior to coming to Victory, Pastor Ed served United Methodist congregations in Oklahoma, where he also directed the Oklahoma United Methodist Task Force for Hispanic Ministry.
After coming to Victory (in 1992), Pastor Ed graduated with a DMin degree (2006) through the Beeson Pastor Program, a prestigious full scholarship program of Asbury Theological Seminary. As a Beeson Pastor, in addition to classwork focusing on leadership and biblical preaching, Pastor Ed had the opportunity to travel to some of the fastest growing, cutting edge churches in the United States and Korea.
Pastor Ed has served as a regional leader through involvement with the Assemblies of God and through interdenominational endeavors. He has a passion for a move of God that will bring transformation to the Philadelphia region and beyond.
