Pastor Ed Eddingfield is our Senior Pastor. He came to serve as our Senior Pastor in October of 2015 with his wife, Anita, and two daughters. Pastor Ed was serving as a church planter in the far-west valley of the Phoenix Metro area, where God successfully planted a church with them, and he was able to finish degrees with Wayland Baptist University and Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary while there. Pastor Ed is excited about God’s work here and feels “blessed to be able to serve in such a great church.”
