Dr. Ed Newton became the Lead Pastor at Community Bible Church in January 2016. His calling includes evangelism, pastoring, teaching God’s Word, and connecting with people of all ages and cultures. Ed Newton is husband to his college sweetheart Stephanie and dad to London, Lola, Liv, and Lawson.It was in the midst of adversity and major hardship during his high school years that Ed began his relationship with Christ. Because of his own radical salvation experience, he has the ability to meet people where they are and to minister to them during tough times. Through the encouragement of others and the study of scripture, as a senior in high school, Ed realized God was calling him to the ministry. He began his collegiate journey at Clearwater Christian College in Florida, then went on to earn Masters degrees in religious education and divinity, as well as a Doctorate in pulpit communication and expository preaching.
Ed has since served in various church staff positions, such as youth pastor, recreation pastor, and minister of outreach and single adults. He spent several years in a faith-based itinerant evangelism ministry. Just prior to coming to CBC, he concurrently held support roles as staff evangelist at First Baptist Church, Central Florida, acted as executive director of the Lift Tour, and taught as a faculty member at Student Leadership University in Orlando. Using all these experiences, God has uniquely gifted and prepared Ed to lead the people of CBC.
In 1986, just one year after he began his personal relationship with Christ, then college student Scott Kindig was called by God to the ministry, and he has been living to draw others to Jesus ever since. Scott was born in Nashville, Tennessee, but his spiritual journey and ministry career began in Georgia and continued there throughout college and seminary. In addition to serving on staff at several churches in roles such as Youth Pastor, Disciple-Making Pastor, and Chief of Staff / Executive Pastor, he has had the opportunity to minister at numerous leadership development events, student camps and events around the nation. Scott also has served the Georgia Baptist Convention as a Youth Ministry Consultant and, most recently, has been part of a ministry that multiplies leaders around the world, with the goal of expanding God’s Kingdom influence through discipleship and missions. He has been trained and certified in ministry coaching, disciple-making, learning communities, identity and calling, and vision templating for congregations. It is his passion to invest in leaders to effect change in the world.
Scott loves to be called “husband” by his beautiful wife Kim and “daddy” by their four amazing children, Seth (and his wife Laura), Nate, Drew, and Mary Beth and is anxious to add “grand daddy” to his titles. Scott and Kim love being disciple-makers and pray for God’s influence to expand and deepen both in their family and in the extended family of the Kingdom of God.
