Pastor Edward Black, Jr.

Pastor Ed has dedicated nearly 30 years to serving the local church in various pastoral capacities. His passion extends to God’s people, diverse small groups, youth, young adults in college, outreach initiatives, and large community gatherings, all with the aim of enhancing the potential of every ministry. Time spent with Pastor Ed reveals his boundless energy, infectious laughter, and his knack for creative problem-solving. He’s a catalyst and a team builder who cherishes human connections and laughter, always striving for what could be over what currently is.

He holds a business degree from the University of Arizona, majoring in Marketing & Human Resources, and a two-year Ministry certification from the Impact School of Ministry, where he also taught several courses. Additionally, he’s certified in Applied Behavioral/Personality Analysis (DISC) by the Center for Motivational Living.

Celebrating two decades of marriage with his wonderful wife Karen, they are proud parents to Madison Grace, adopted after nine years of trying for a child. Pastor Ed’s interests include movies, ’80s pop music, Michael W. Smith, all things Star Trek, and he’s an avid Peet’s coffee fan, humorously regarding Starbucks as mere purveyors of burnt, brown water.
