Edwin has spent twenty-six years in full-time Pastoral ministry. He has a Bachelor of Theology from Masters College and Seminary Toronto, Ontario; a Master of Divinity from Oral Roberts University, Tulsa Oklahoma; and, a of Master of Arts from Acadia University, Kentville, Nova Scotia.
Having served twelve years in managerial roles with an engineering firm and the Government of Newfoundland prior to entering full-time pastoral ministry he brings a wealth of leadership skills to his portfolio.
Edwin & Rhoda commenced their ministry at the Family Christian Centre in September of 2008; and since that time FCC has experienced significant growth. He has been the primary visionary and overseer during the launch of the Legacy Counselling Centre and the Wheaton-Penney Childcare Centre. Both of these new enterprises are devoted to nurturing healthy families.
Edwin is known for his energy and passion; both in the congregation and the community. His preaching and teaching is forthright and down to earth; the cry of his heart is for people to discover Christ and grow in discipleship-life. His primary weakness is his hope that the Toronto Maple Leafs will win the Stanley Cup before Christ comes to establish His Millennial Kingdom.
Edwin is married to the lady of his dreams, Rhoda; and together they are parents to three adult children, and five spirited grandchildren.
