Evangelist, Bible Conference Preacher, Interims, & Supply Preacher.
After growing up in the west Texas town of Seminole and accepting God’s call to ministry in 1973, Ed Ethridge moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area to pursue his education at Dallas Baptist University, The Criswell College, and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. It was during this time that Ed began his 30-plus years of service in pastoral ministry.
With the Lord’s power and leadership, Ed successfully helped the churches he pastored to eliminate debt, complete building and remodeling programs, add staff, and increase their involvement in missions. Bro. Ed was also one of the area pastors that helped give birth to the North Texas Baptist Association, where he served for 14 years as its Director of Missions, making a total of almost 45 years in ministry.
Ed previously served as a trustee on the board of Lifeway Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention and as a member of the Executive Board of Southern Baptists of Texas Convention, as well as First Vice President. Ed and his wife, Judy, have two children, three grandchildren, and currently reside in Tomball,TX.
