Ed & his wife Alana are excited about a new season of ministry together in Medicine Hat. They have been married 27 years with three young adults, two are off to college and one in Highschool. Ed and his wife have been serving together in pastoral ministry for over 20 years. On the road of ministry Ed continues to learn how to bring the hope and healing of God’s love to those in need within the community. Previous experience in serving as a first responder and chaplain, for over 20 years, has helped him grow and share with others the very real hope that we all can find in Christ.

Hobbies include: Camping with family, and just about anything outdoors from running, biking, backpacking, fishing, and roasting coffee.

Looking forward to meeting you!
