Jeff and Laura Edwards

Jeff and Laura Edwards oversee the OMS ministry and partnerships in eight countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Discipleship and mentoring are their passion. Their goal is to invest in leaders who can multiply themselves, strengthen the church, and give vision to mission-sending from this region. A key focus is also on helping other leaders develop disciplines that will help them stay healthy in the ministry.

For years, they have had a ministry to couples through mentoring, counseling, and speaking at retreats. They served 22 years in Brazil, doing church planting, leadership development, and counseling. They both also served as professors at Londrina Bible Seminary (LBS). Jeff served as the president of the LBS board, and Laura coordinated two graduate programs. They also pastored a local church, mentored couples, and successfully handed off a couples’ camp ministry.

 They returned to the U.S. in 2008, and Jeff began serving as regional director for the Latin America/Caribbean region in early 2009.

After growing up in Brazil as the son of OMS missionaries, Jeff returned to the United States and attended Asbury College, where he earned his bachelor’s degree. He holds a master’s degree in theological studies from Wheaton College Graduate School and a doctor of ministry degree in pastoral care and counseling from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Laura has a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Wheaton College Graduate School and a doctorate in educational psychology from Regent University.

Jeff and Laura have two daughters: Katie, married to Thiago, and Kendra, married to Mark. They also have four grandsons and one granddaughter.
