About K. Edward
  • Education: Ed graduated from Ozark Bible College in ’72 with a BSL degree. He received an MA from California Graduate School of Theology in ’83,and received a D Min from Vision International University in 2001.
  • Experience: Ed has been an ordained minister since ’72 (40 years), having served the following churches: Ridgecrest Christian Church, Albuquerque, NM (’72-’74), Arcadia Christian Church, Santa Fe, TX, (’74-’85), Castle Hills Christian Church, San Antonio, TX (’85 - now). Ed is Vice chairman of the Trustees at Colegio Biblico, Eagle Pass, TX, President of Heart of Texas Evangelistic Assn. Ed has written two books: A Place at my Father's Table (Lulu.com) & Our Spiritual Inheritance (Vision Publishing Service)
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Most of my sermons are textual or expository in nature because I believe that is the kind of preaching that helps baby Christians grow into maturity.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: I love to preach sermon series often choosing something I have never studied before or looking at a text in a new way. Right now we are preaching through "The Story"
  • One of my favorite illustrations: I generally try to include an illustration about something adorable my grandchildren did or said much to the amusement (or consternation) of the congregation.
  • Family: Ed and Susan Skidmore met at Ozark Bible College in Joplin, Mo. and were married in 1972, soon after graduation. They have 2 daughters, Kaysha Simpson and Kimberly Condit, and four grandchildren (Morgan, David, Caleb, and Lydia)
  • What my parents think of my sermons: My dad read the last book I wrote, "Our Spiritual Inheritance" and said it is the best book he had ever read. (He might be somewhat prejudiced)
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: My wife highly approves of my sermons because she edits them.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: My mother-in-law said "if you can’t strike oil in 20 minutes, stop boring!"
  • Books that have had an impact: I believe I have read almost everything ever written by Watchman Nee. I have also enjoyed books by Major Ian Thomas, Stuart Briscoe, and Jill Briscoe, My favorite commentary is the "Be" Series by Warren Wieresbe.
  • Hobbies: Ed is a left-handed finger-style guitarist (and banjo player), loves to golf (right handed), fish (left handed),and hunt (left handed). Also a blogger, his blog is at http://skiddingintohome.blogspot.com/
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Hold on Tight! We’re gonna win!
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: One Sunday I arrived to see two buzzards perched on top of our church building. They stayed there most of the morning causing me to wonder if that was a sign from God about our church’s future.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Faithful unto death!
