Ed Poblete - Missions and Outreach

Since called to serve for Central in 1979, Ed has served as Youth Minister (79'-83'), Missionary to the Philippines (83'-00'), and presently serves in the Outreach Ministries. He also volunteers as a Hospital Chaplain for Valley View Hospital.

Next to God's love, Ed is energized by the love of his family! His wife; Sherry, and children; Daniel and Michelle, are a constant source of encouragement and inspiration. Sherry, works as a Registered Nurse at Carl Albert Health Systems.

While serving in the Philippines, the Poblete's took part in missionary team efforts in the cities of Cebu, Baguio, and Antipolo. Having survived killer earthquakes, volcano eruptions, and typhoons they saw how God's power could turn natural disasters into spiritual blessings. One blessing was the establishment of M.A.R.C.H. for Christ; a medical-evangelism team that conducts free Clinics and church planting through out the Philippine Islands. This ministry tool has produced churches on the islands of Bohol, Samar, Aklan, Negros, and Luzon. Ed continues to make annual trips to the Philippines to keep his heart close to missions.
The Poblete's returned from the Philippine Islands in 2000 not knowing what to do or where to work. The Central Eldership graciously allowed Ed to work and find a place within the church family. Soon, ministries such as the Turkey Hotline, and the new Compassion Outreach Center would provide a natural transition from foreign missions to local work. It is amazing how God uses one's past to prepare them for future ministries.
". . . serve one another in love." Gal. 5:13
