Pastor Matt Edwards


Pastor Edwards was born and raised in the great state of Ohio.  From an early age, his parents had him in church and enrolled him in Christian school. He accepted Christ as his personal Savior on February 14, 1988 when he was 7 years old. On that Valentine's Day, he put his faith in the One who loves more than any other! He continued to grow up in church and learned the importance of surrendering his life to serve the Lord. He graduated from high school in 1999 and went off to Bible college.  

After graduating from Bible college in 2003, he married his high school sweetheart Tonya and moved to south Florida to serve as the youth pastor at Faith Baptist Church in Margate. It was in Florida that the Lord blessed the Edwards with three wonderful children. After twelve years of serving as an assistant pastor, he felt called of the Lord that it was time to find a church of his own to be a senior pastor. Even though it was hard to leave home, and though many tears were shed, the Edwards family moved in the fall of 2015.

On January 10, 2016, Pastor Edwards was voted in as the new pastor of Faith Baptist Church in Sedalia! He is excited about what the Lord is doing here in the church and in the city. He looks forward to many years of service and has a desire to see folks come to know Jesus as their Savior.
