Lead Pastor

What do you want to see happen at Trinity?

I get excited teaching the Bible in a relevant way and seeing the "lights go on" as people discover biblical truths. I want to develop disciples that learn the Truth, seek God and His ways, influence their community and invest in God's kingdom.

Tell us about your family.

I'm married to Holly and have six kids and a new grandson. Four of my kids are married, Becca is studying at Grand Valley and Blake is in high school. We love the changes in the seasons, the outdoors and taking our dog, Wrigley, on daily walks. No, life is never dull but is full of excitement.

Who do you cheer for?

I am originally from the Chicago suburbs so I cheer for the Cubs, Bears, Blackhawks, and Bulls. I graduated from Michigan State so I bleed Green and White for the Spartans.

Youth & Connections Pastor

What do you want to see happen at Trinity?

I want to see God be lifted up and people grow in their relationships with Him. I love seeing young hearts deepen their faith, have aha moments, and see relationships flourish as God becomes the center of their lives. I desire to be a teacher, a friend, and a neighbor as we seek to love God and one another more each day.

Tell us about your family.

God has blessed me with a wonderful wife named Adrienne, a young daughter named Izzy, and a new little girl due very soon. We also have three little ferocious kitties to add into the mix. Our days consist of chasing a toddler, feeding and playing with our kitties, building a strong marriage, and thanking God for all the blessings He gives us.

What do you do outside of the ministry?

Prior to being a pastor, my wife and I were personal trainers and nutrition coaches. We love healthy living and being active. I especially love basketball. We are also new to the small town living but we long for adventures in the woods and kayaking trips around the lake. I have been known to enjoy a good video game or board game as well.

Have you ever done anything with music?

Let's see, music? Well, I was a public school vocal and instrumental teacher/administrator for 31 years. I had a state and national champion marching/concert/drumline bands and held many offices at the state level for the Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association.  My top band was invited to Russia to tour by their government, won the Toronto International, Washington International and Gatorbowl Marching competitions, and my jazz band won a clinic at the Kennedy Center with Winton Marsalis. My wife and I have collaborated on several musicals and church Cantatas. We strive to involve the arts with our students as a means of outreach.

Tell us about your family.

My family is quite small by Trinity standards with just my wife Denise and my twenty something son Chris. Both are very active at Trinity. You will see my wife with a guitar upfront or running the sound and computers in the back. My son will be the guy behind the camera trying to blend in (he is 6ft and the tallest Edwards in the history of our extended family). We have been a part of the Trinity family for over 25 years.

Children's Ministry Director

What is the best part about being a children’s ministry director?

The best part about my job is that I get to teach children about how much God loves them. I get to show them through our lessons and conversations, build relationships with them, and watch them grow. I am blessed to have the help of an amazing team of volunteers that serve our kids. Our DTM mission statement is: Helping children find life in Christ. Through our weekly lessons and our family outreach events, my hope is that this mission will be accomplished.
