Ed Butler was in Berwyn, Illinois in 1961 and raised in Joliet, Illinois area. His parents were not Christians started to attend church in Hickory Hills Illinois shortly after his birth. He grew up in that church and was saved at the age of 9.
At one point He read a book called Halftime by Bob Buford. In it he described how God had led
him to spend the second half of his life in service to the Lord. He remembers thinking how that would be an amazing goal.
Ed and his family moved to Texas in 2000. He became increasingly convinced that God was working and calling me to ministry.
By 2014, Christian Leaders Institute was an answer to prayer for ministry training. CLI was a perfect fit for his lifestyle.
After graduating with his Bachelor of Divinity degree, Ed took a position as interim pastor at FBC in Quinlan, Tx. They called him to be there full time Pastor just a few months later. They have grown from around 25 at his first Sunday to averaging 75-85 most Sunday mornings in the first two year at this church.
