Pastor Gerald Edmonds The Moody Church
Pastor Gerald H. Edmonds Pastor of Music Ministry
Pastor Edmonds joined the staff of the church in September 1982. He has also been a professor of Sacred Music at Moody Bible Institute (MBI) since 1969. His training includes a bachelor's of music from MBI and a Master's of Music from the American Conservatory of Music.
He served as a minister of music in several churches before coming to The Moody Church, including 20 years at Winnetka Bible Church. Working with the needs of The Moody Church and its constituency has been a rewarding endeavor for him. He recalls from his earlier ministries learning the importance of having music that both impacts the believer and creates an outreach mechanism for our needy world. He also knows first hand that service in a church for a long period of time has definite advantages for growth in the church's ministry. A special joy for him in music ministry h as been travelling overseas, affording a broader cultural understanding and an opportunity to witness the universality of the language of music throughout the world.
His goal as minister of music is to bring people to a service of worship that reflects eternal values and encourages growth in the Christian life. He is committed to a balanced program of music that has been used in the life of the church through the centuries - including great hymnody, meaningful gospel music, artistic pieces, and music of today - which complements a thematic service and helps in communicating the Scriptures.
Pastor Edmonds believes that worship is more than just our effort to ascribe worth to God. He says, "God is to be worshiped in spirit and in truth. Every day of our lives is directed by our Lord, and obedience to His ways and His character is not only personal enhancement but a key to the power and will of God being accomplished in us."
He and his wife, Patti, have been married since 1958 and have 2 daughters and 4 grandchildren.
