Ed Loney was led to The Lord at the age of six while living in Richmond, Virginia. Not soon after, Ed and his family moved to Arkansas where they began attending Jacksonville Baptist Temple. It was at the age of twelve when he knew God was calling him to preach. Ed was given many opportunities to serve under his pastor, Dr. Ted Patterson. Through these opportunities The Lord was creating a burden within his heart for the ministry. At the age of sixteen, while attending a youth conference, Ed completely surrendered to God's will for his life. He furthered his education at The Crown College in Powell, Tennessee, where he graduated in 2013. He is currently serving as the Youth Pastor at Jacksonville Baptist Temple in Jacksonville, Arkansas.
