Patrick Edwards (Ph.D., Systematic Theology) came to FBC Warrensburg in October 2017. Previously he led churches as senior pastor in North Carolina. He is married to Teresa and, together, they have two rambunctious kids, Aiden and Charlotte. Most significantly they are proud parents of a Golden Retriever, Sawyer. Having done undergraduate work at the University of Virginia and graduate and post-graduate work at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Patrick is passionate about seeing the church mobilized to follow God in His mission in the building of His Kingdom! Otherwise, he’s a pretty boring guy who you’ll likely find, when not playing with his kids, sitting on a park bench starring out into who knows what.
