Pastor Erin and Chelsea Edwards are the lead pastors and founders of LOP Community Church. Married in 2017, they welcomed twin daughters, Erilee and Evagrae, in January 2019.
Pastor Erin graduated with a Masters's degree in Ministry and Theology and together, she and Chelsea have served in ministry for over 18 years.
As a gay, African-American woman in ministry, Erin is no stranger to opposition. Because of this, Erin has been equipped with an understanding of the marginalized and has used it as a platform to combat injustice. With a passion for what God has for His people in the here and now, Pastor Erin promotes a life lived not only with purpose but on purpose. Her voice speaks directly to the soul, waking people up to encounter and live out their God-given dreams.
Pastor Erin and Chelsea strive to build a community in which all people are free to experience the love of God, regardless of age, gender, sexuality, race, etc.
