Edwin Copeland

Director of Church United

Edwin (Eddie) currently serves as the Director of Church United — a trans-denominational movement that seeks to unify the Church for the sake of mission.

Eddie firmly believes the Church is the hope of the world and has worked toward that end throughout his entire career. Prior to his time at NCF, Eddie served in executive level leadership and pastoral staff in both local Church and para-church ministries. He has helped lead RENEW South Florida, a local church planting and leadership development organization, and has served as Vice President of Community Engagement for HOPE South Florida, where he oversaw all overflow emergency shelter operations for homeless children and families, organizational development, strategic partnerships and church network. Eddie is a sought-after consultant on church-based community development and social mobilization and views his life calling to help activate the people of God in South Florida.

His greatest joy is being married to the love of his life and high-school sweetheart Sara and being dad to his daughter, Anna, and son, Nathan. Eddie holds a B.S. in Theology from Moody Bible Institute, an M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Trinity International University, and is a two-time recipient of the Made to Flourish Fellowship with the Acton Institute on Faith, Work and Economics.

You’ll know Eddie when you see him, he’ll always have an iced coffee in his hands
