Few speak and teach the Word with as much passion and clarity as Ed Newton. Ed travels the country sharing about the truth of Christ that he found while living through difficult circumstances and major hardships in high school. As the only child of two deaf parents, Ed lived in a world of silence. In those early days, it was through the spoken word of others and the written Word of God that clarified a call to ministry as a senior in high school. God began to show forth His sovereign will in leading Ed to Clearwater Christian College to gain a Biblical education, while affording the opportunity to play college basketball for four years. He and his wife Stephanie, and their four children London, Liv, Lola and Lawson reside in San Antonio, TX where Ed serves as the Lead Pastor of Community Bible Church. His communication style can be summarized as “passion with content” while seeking to inspire people to be passionate, dedicated followers of Christ.
“From the first time I met Ed years ago, I was encouraged with his passion and commitment to be a leading voice for a generation of students. He boldly preaches the Gospel in love and understand that his number one responsibility is to be a clear communicator of the Bible.” – J. Roger Davis
