As a teenager Ed committed his life to Christ. This commitment included a desire for a strong and lasting marriage (now for over 46 years) and for a ministry in which God would use him to encourage others. That is what he has done throughout his ministry. As an Associate of Standing Stone Ministry, he is available as a sounding board and encourager to pastors who are in danger of burnout and leaving the ministry.
Ed is an ordained minister, and certified as a Pastoral Counselor, a Prepare/Enrich Facilitator, and a Transitional Pastor. He has many years of experience both in the pulpit and one-on-one counseling. Ed graduated from Bible College and Colorado Christian University. He has been privileged to speak and share at churches, seminars, and other teaching events.
