Ed is a graduate of Lincoln Christian University and has been in located ministry since 2005. Before that, he was a lay-leader in Iowa City, IA.
Ed is married to his best friend, Kim, who is awesome at everything that he is terrible at. They have two kids – Edwin is a gifted drummer, filmmaker, and fashion photographer, and Ellis, plays tons of instruments, and is lead singer/songwriter for Wax Candy, a central-Illinois-based power pop quartet.
Ed is a movie junkie, a singer/songwriter, a mediocre guitar player, a fan of N.T. Wright and C.S. Lewis, and he ran his first (and probably his last) half marathon in September 2012.
