Dr. Michael Edwards
Dr, Michael Edwards received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior in 1970 and was quickly elevated to serve in leadership capacity. Soon thereafter, he met and married his lovely wife Sherrie in 1974. From that point on, they have been serving in ministry together. The Lord has also blessed them with two amazing daughters, two wonderful son-in-laws, and allowed them to be grandparents to five beautiful grandchildren.
Acknowledging the call of God upon his life, he enrolled at L.I.F.E. Bible College (currently Life Pacific College) in 1974 to enrich his ministry calling. In the interim, he was called to preach in 1976. Shortly after graduating from L.I.F.E. Bible College in 1980, he received his Bachelor’s Degree (B.A.) and his ETTA Certification (Evangelical Teachers Training Associates Certificate). He began serving his appointment in Carlin Avenue Foursquare Church in Lynwood, California and was well regarded for his teaching and ministry leadership. In 1989, he was called to the role of Senior Pastor and planted “A New and Living Way” Foursquare Church in Rancho Cucamonga, California, where he served faithfully as Senior Pastor for eight years. In 1990, he received his ordination from the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. In March 1997, he became the founding Pastor of what is now affectionately known as Wind of the Spirit Worship Center Foursquare Church of Riverside, California until 2018. In accepting this appointment, he mobilized the membership and served to facilitate the merger of two church families…A New and Living Way with Wind of the Spirit Worship Center. Desiring additional ministry opportunities, Pastor Edwards found it necessary to continue his education by pursuing a Doctorate Degree in Theology. In March of 2018, Pastor Michael Edwards received his Doctorate Degree in Theology (Th.D.) from Next Dimension University.
