  • Pastor greg howell

    Soon after moving to the Antelope Valley in the early 80’s I began to be involved in our local church; serving in many areas such as playing on the worship team, nursery/children’s ministry, youth ministry and various leadership teams.  

    By the 90’s I received my Foursquare Credentials and was Ordained by Foursquare in 2000, during that time I have served both as a volunteer and in full time ministry as a Youth Pastor, Assistant/Associate and Co-Pastor.  I have also had the privilege to study at LIFE Pacific College and Promise Christian University where I earned my PhD and served as a faculty professor. 

    In April 2016 my wife Tami and I celebrated our 33rd year of marriage. We have three awesome kids: Angela, Alan (his wife Heather) and Amara. We also have two amazing grandchildren Paislie (6 years old) and Clyde (5 months). 

    Most of our ministry as been right here is the Antelope Valley and we are looking forward to many more year of service in our community. Our family has been with The Edge since it's launch, we are in awe and are proud of what God has done so far in His church; We continue in excitement for what He is doing NOW at The Edge!

  • fernando ramirez (Executive director)

    I've been serving the Lord in the Antelope Valley in various forms for the last 10 years. I've had the opportunity to serve as youth director for 3 years, been a part of the worship team and now stepping into the Executive role; all here at The Edge. It's been a real pleasure to demonstrate and communicate God's love to the people of our community. I look forward to continuing serving The Lord until He returns.
