Pastor John Edwards
Temple Baptist Church Senior Pastor
Temple Christian School Administrative Director and Principal
I am a 10.5 year veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps who got saved in 1996 at Church of the Open Door in Westminster, MD when Pastor Norris Belcher preached the gospel message during a graduation ceremony. I was there to recruit more Marines and the Holy Spirit was there recruiting me! Since that time, my wife Analiza and our 4 kids headed to the Philippines as missionaries. I have also served in various churches and as a hospice chaplain.
God called me to be the pastor of Temple Baptist Church in North Ft Myers, FL arriving here December 19, 2017. I look forward to welcoming you into our Temple Family.
