MEET OUR LEAD PastorS
Nolan & Kathy Edwards
Nolan & Kathy have a passion for the presence of God and to see the Kingdom of God established on the earth as the people of God awaken to their destiny, impacting their world as an accurate representation of Christ while simply demonstrating the power of the Holy Spirit.
Nolan and Kathy have been married for over 30 years and in that time have had three kids Briana, Brittany and Jeron who have grown to be amazing young adults. Nolan is a third generation pastor who with Kathy began their ministry leading worship in churches around the nation. The first of those churches was Cypress Cathedral in Winter Haven Florida where in 1991 they left the church in order to pursue the other things that God had for them to do. In their departure from Winter Haven they had no plans or idea that God would lead them back as the Lead Pastors but in 2009’ that is what happened. Cypress Cathedral’s name changed soon after to Champions Church; taking the focus from a building where people meet to proclaiming the identity of the people who are the victorious church.
Nolan and Kathy are part of the Bethel Leaders Network (out of Bethel Church in Redding, California) and carry the same DNA of bringing heaven to earth and bringing transformation to our city. Nolan is an anointed singer and trumpeter who loves producing events using the arts and multi-media. He ministers regularly in other nations, releasing healing while encouraging pastors and ministries to be all that God wants them to be. He loves the outdoors including deer hunting and a round of golf with friends but he especially loves hanging out with his family. Kathy is a part of the worship team who helps usher in the presence of God. Along with her passion for her family she loves spending her time helping others which led her to put together a team that started Champion Churches House of Hope ministry to our community.
