Edward Turcios

Associate Student Pastor

Hey there! My name is Edward Turcios, and I’m the Associate Student Pastor. I’m married to a babe deluxe 5000 named Karlee and we have a giant golden doodle named Bruno. He weighs about a hundred pounds and acts like a giant teddy bear. I hope you can meet my awesome family in person!

I’ve known that God was calling me into ministry since I was in the 7th grade. The Gospel clicked for me during a winter retreat and I knew that God was calling me to live my life dedicated to Him. At that time I was really passionate about music so I pursued worship ministry. I went off to college with the plan of becoming a worship pastor, but desiring to be pastoral before being a talented musician. I attended Criswell College and got a degree in Biblical Studies all the while working at a church in Mansfield TX. There I learned so many incredible things from leading worship, to teaching, to even operating cameras. That entire time, God always led me to minister and disciple students. The time of a person’s life from 6th to 12th grade is so impressionable and I myself experienced the reality that it’s possible to do big things for the Gospel in middle school and high school. This led me to pursue student ministry and after 6 years of vocational ministry my passion for leading students to know and follow Jesus has only grown!
