Associate Pastor of Christian Formation
Team member since:
It's been my pleasure to serve here at The Sanctuary since 2011. In my role as Formation Pastor, I get to create spaces for adults to Connect, Grow, & Serve in ways that deepen their faith. Having served two churches in North Minneapolis for over a decade, I'm very excited about the opportunities that we have to join with God and our many partners in making all things new in hearts of our members and in this community! At my core, I am a South Carolinian who loves Minneapolis, music, history, travel, and people! I am married to an amazing woman, Shanequa, and we are parents to a beautiful 6 year-old soul, Taylor Elise. I am a lifelong learner. I studied African-American Studies & U.S. History at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC. I also earned a Masters of Divinity degree in Preaching & Communication from Bethel Seminary in St. Paul, MN. Beyond my work at The Sanctuary, I and I;m passionate about equipping leaders of all ages who will impact society regardless of their sphere of influence. I love writing. In 2014, was a contributor to Father Factor: American Christian Men on Fatherhood and Faith from White Cloud Press. I blog from time to time on my interest areas, like faith & family, at www.edrinwilliams.com.
