Born and raised in New York City, Edwin Perez is an author, speaker, and blogger who is passionate about people and seeing change in communities through the message of the gospel. Called to the ministry at the age of 16, his hunger for a deeper understanding of God’s word led him to Northpoint Bible College. While he was there, he traveled throughout the New England and tri-state area speaking and ministering. After graduating, he returned to his hometown of Queens, New York, to preach the gospel to the unreached, focusing on outreach and youth ministries.
In his hometown, he worked for many years as a youth director and outreach pastor and wasn’t satisfied until every encounter led souls to Christ.
One of his favorite quotes is by Baptist preacher Charles Haddon Spurgeon: “To be a soul winner is the happiest thing in this world and with every soul you bring to Jesus Christ, you seem to get a new Heaven here upon earth!”
Edwin received his BS in Biblical and Theological Studies and is currently enrolled in a Master of Divinity program at Fuller Theological Seminary. He also loves coffee, working out, and is an avid collector of books.
He is married to Jocelyn, and they have two boys, Elijah and Ethan. Edwin regularly blogs at http://www.breachingthewalls.org.
