The Edney Family

Feature Date:

Jonathan and Becca Edney, along with Benjamin (14), Matthew (12), and Bella (8) spent 10 years with the International Mission Board (IMB). Then, the Lord introduced them to a new mission field, the diaspora in Charleston. In 2020 they began the church planting process with the growing Portuguese-speaking population in the Lowcountry. Knowing that language learning is a huge need in both missionary life and in immigration to the United States, they began an English as a Second Language (ESL) ministry that now serves not only Brazilians, but over 300 students from 17 different countries.

Prayer requests:

  • Pray for CBC’s growing small group ministry and for leadership for each small group.
  • Pray for the growing ESL ministry.
  • Pray for the Edneys’ endurance as local missionaries.
  • Pray for the Edneys’ children as they grow in their faith.
