Born in 1977, Edgar's life changed on the day God took Lordship over him. Shaped through his journey as an artist and story teller, he has been given a divine call to share the Gift mercifully given to him with a broken world. That gift is the Redemptive work and story of Christ Jesus. He isn't sure if there is a better call for an artist than to help breath life and hope into one of the Divine Artist greatest creations.

What if everyone you talked to was important to you and mattered?

Edgar is one of the most effective youth leaders with whom I have had the pleasure of working. His teaching is always pertinent and effective, and he always strives to reach even the most distant youth.

- Emily Hudson, Director Project American Life.

In a culture that assigns value based on what we can contribute it is near impossible for us to believe we have value when we have no voice. But we do have a voice. God gave it to us. He placed it inside us to release captives and to set free those who are downtrodden. It's time to begin using that voice,

to speak life into some dry bones.

What if your relationship with God was personal, dynamic and the most important thing in your world?

His personal spiritual depth brings power and precision to all aspects of his teaching method. Teens will find that his earnest and calming personality put him in a category with few peers.

- Jamie Aiken, The Refuge
