Ed loves spending time with people and learning about each individual’s unique story and experiences. He believes that we all have our own special way of seeing things, and contributing to the community; and that being able to share in the experiences that each person brings to the table is a gift. Ed has a burden to see the Church of Jesus Christ come together and operate in strength and unity, outside of the limitations of separate church entities. Although healthy relationships and conflict resolution in the Church are often left in want, he believes that these are crucial factors for discipleship, revival, and communal transformation.

Paul has a burden to disciple people and develop leaders within the church, and to see churches come together and support one another.
