About our Co-Pastor
Co-Pastor Troy Edwards
Co-Pastor Troy Edwards was born and raised in Trinidad and Tobago in the West Indies, to Mr. Albert and Mrs. Maria Edwards of success village laventille. While living in the West Indies Co-Pastor Edwards began his faith and service to the Lord in the Roman Catholic Church. As a youth in the Roman Catholic Church he served as an Alter Boy. Like Jonah, when given the mantle to preach the Word to the people; instead, Co-Pastor Edwards ran and hid from God. In his running he found himself in the United States away from home and God. Later coming to realize that, he could not run from God; he joined the Episcopal Church, where God Reposition him as an Alter Boy and again God sent the mantle to him, to preach the Word. Again he separated himself by joining the United States Navy. He served in the Military for 12 years; and spent those years searching for his personal purpose in life. God came to him again for the third and final time. Co-Pastor Edwards was joined in Holy Matrimony, August 19, 2006 to his lovely wife, Apostle Vanessa Edwards. It was through this beautiful
marriage his calling to preach the Gospel was confirmed. Through the prophetic voice of his wife, Co-Pastor Edwards realized he could no longer run from God's plan for his life. He finally accepted his mantle to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Co-Pastor Troy Edwards now faithfully serves with his wife, Apostle Vanessa Edwards preaching and teaching the Word of God. They both serve the Congregation of Greater Emmanuel Ministries, in Norfolk, Virginia
