905 Valier Dr
Edmund was born at Brookville hospital in 1979. He was baptized at the Clarington church and attended East Forest Elementary school until 1989. He went to middle school and high school in Waynesburg PA and was confirmed at First UMC Waynesburg. After attending the University of Pittsburgh School of Engineering for two years, he lived in Pittsburgh for over a decade, working a variety of business management and culinary jobs. After moving back to the Jefferson County PA area, he joined First UMC Reynoldsville, becoming a very active member.
He worked his way up to a management position at Goodwill Industries, growing their online sales revenue from $400K to over $2M per year and providing opportunities for dozens of workers with barriers to employment. While serving in this role, he went back to school, earning a B.S. in business management.
Through his growing involvement in Lay Servant Ministries, including teaching many classes and serving as district co-director of LSM, he began to discern God's calling for him to serve in pastoral ministry. He served first as an associate pastor supplied by the DS in the Grampian Charge, then as a part time local pastor in Falls Creek. He is now the pastor at Cross Town Ministries, a five-point charge in and around Punxsutawney, and a full time seminary student at MTSO. He loves to cook, and to spend time with his wife Morgan and two young children Victoria and Anthony.
