Pastor Nelson comes to us with forty-five years of pastoral experience. His ministry has allowed him to serve in a variety of areas for the Church of God including the associate pastor, senior pastor, special assignment missionary to Russia, and adjunct faculty to Warner Southern College.

He has served as Senior Pastor at Park Place Church of God in Anderson, Indiana; South Lake Wales Church in Lake Wales, Florida; Peak Community Church in Fort Collins, Colorado; and Sloan’s Lake Community Church in Denver, Colorado. Ed retired from active Pastoral Ministry on February 3, 2017.

His passion to see the traditional church of Jesus Christ become relevant to the contemporary world in which we live has driven his ministry, shaped his communication skills and developed his leadership style.

He received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and Lord in the Spring of 1972. Shortly after that, he received a call to Christian Ministry. His great joy in life revolves around his wife Cheri, their two grown children and their five grandchildren. He enjoys fly fishing, hunting, hiking, and building Aspen Log Furniture.
