Dr. Edmonds day job is that of being the proud pastor of the historic Grace Community Seventh-day Adventist Church (formerly Glenville Seventh-day Adventist Church). His pastoral career has spanned eighteen years.
Under Dr. Edmonds visionary and innovative leadership, Grace Community SDA Church has transformed from a traditional church to a community powerhouse, fighting for justice, lifting the oppressed and setting captives free spiritually, physically and financially. Dr. Edmonds believes that the church is not a building but a people on a mission committed to help as many people as possible experience God’s grace before Jesus returns. In 2012 God gave him a vision to buy a former K-Mart building in Euclid, OH and build a 7 day a week multi-ministry complex that houses several community outreach ministries for families as well as a 9-12 Leadership and Technology high school purposed to help stop the school to prison pipeline. He believes if you build a school you can close a prison. As a result of this initiative, Grace Community broke ground on this state of the art in November of 2018.
Pastor Edmonds is regarded as one of the most fearless, transparent leaders of his generation. He is a highly sought after speaker who travels the world helping to revitalize dying churches, develop leaders and strengthen families.
