Mark & Kathy Edwards
Mark and Kathy Edwards are international speakers, church planters, and business people whose priority is releasing the kingdom of God on earth. Their passion is teaching and demonstrating God's kingdom using their apostolic and prophetic gifts. Mark and Kathy practically communicate how to love God and others, how to wholeheartedly follow Jesus, and how to teach others to follow Him. They also share their business skills and ideas so that God's people can prosper and experience life to the full.
Salvation, healing, deliverance from evil, and release of spiritual gifts accompany the Edwards' ministry as they proclaim the good news of the Kingdom with love and simplicity. Their heart is to serve and to teach so that local church leaders are encouraged and strengthened and God's people equipped to walk in their God-given destinies.
Additionally, Mark and Kathy have a vision to see God's people in impoverished countries where they minister create products that can be sold in the United States and the United Kingdom. These products provide ways to lift people out of the poverty cycle and sustain them with a viable livelihood.
Mark received his theological training at Dallas Theological Seminary and graduated with a Master of Theology degree (missions and church planting emphasis). He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Business (Marketing) from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and for years successfully owned and operated a real estate development company. Kathy earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Virginia Tech and completed graduate biblical studies from Dallas Seminary with a view of serving on the mission field.
While developing English-speaking schools in Hong Kong in 1994, Mark had an amazing experience with the Holy Spirit that changed their lives forever. The Edwards' ministries bring a balance of sound theology based on the Word of God and the reality of the Holy Spirit's work in everyday life.
