Ed & Kim have served as Awana Missionaries for over 20 years. Ed met Jesus at the Awana Club at First Baptist Church in Cottonwood, CA in 1968. The truths from God’s Word that he learned in Awana became the foundations of his faith. Kim was saved at Trinity Lutheran Church in Redding, CA while in fourth grade. She responded to the gospel as shared by her Sunday School Superintendent after a friend invited her to Sunday School. Ed & Kim have been married for 33 years and have two children, Heather and Matt, and two wonderful granddaughters.
Since becoming Missionaries in 1995, Ed & Kim have ministered in Northern Californa, Northern Nevada, and Western Oregon, and Texas. They currently oversee the Awana ministry in Texas, Oklahoma, Georgia, and Florida. They enjoyed the privilege of traveling to Germany twice to assist with the Awana ministry there, including starting the first Awana club in former East Germany.
Ed & Kim have always had a dream, that every child in their sphere of influence, would be within driving distance of a vibrant Awana ministry.
