Rev. Bart Edwards
Bart comes to us from Lynchburg, VA where he has been the Pastor/Head of Staff at Quaker Memorial Presbyterian Church. His roots originated in Fayetteville, AR but over the years have spread to include CA, MS, TN, and NC as places he and his family have called home. Bart’s extensive business background, coupled with his call and experience in ordained ministry, has given him a rich and unique perspective on servant leadership within a church.
His ministry and life are grounded in the importance of building and growing strong and healthy relationships; first and foremost being his relationship with God. Bart enjoys spending time with his family, camping, hiking, fly fishing, tennis, reading, and sports. Bart’s wife, Suzy, has a Master of Arts in Theological Studies from Columbia Theological Seminary and is a certified Christian Educator. Bart and Suzy went to seminary as second-career students when their two children, Rollie and Carter Lee, were young. Their son, Rollie, graduated from Hampden-Sydney College with a degree in Business and Finance and a minor in Rhetoric. Carter Lee graduated from Elon University in NC with a double major in Public Health and Policy Studies and Classical Studies Minor.
