Lead Pastor

Ed became a follower of Jesus Christ at Parkside Chapel here in Visalia his Freshman year of College at COS. He has been married to Cindy for more than 40 years and they have 3 children. Nik is now a rescue swimmer in the Coast Guard, Jenna is in a doctoral program for Old Testament, and McKenzie works at a hospital in prosthetics. Pastor Ed’s great goal is to teach the ancient text of the Bible in a way that communicates 21st Century real life applications. Every Sunday the most important question that can be asked is asked, “So What?! What difference does any of this make?” The answer to that question is discovered as we learn together the application of God’s Word to everyday life.
