Powerful, loving, caring, compassionate, father, brother, and friend, are a few of the words used to describe Bishop Chris Edwards; the man with healing hands. Bishop Chris is a native of Mullins, SC where he was born, lived, educated, and graduated from the Mullins High School. After his marriage to Pastor Eartha, 22 years ago, they relocated to Marion, SC. Bishop Chris has been a musician since the age of 7, playing the keyboard and guitar for many local churches. He accepted Christ into his life at the young age of 12, and now 31 years later his grip on God is tighter than ever. He delivers the word of God in a way that hits hard, leaves no stone unturned and nothing to be imagined.
He has been the Pastor of Harvest Time Evangelistic Center in Mullins, SC for 10 Years. In 2008 he was ordained as a regional Overseer in the Christian Covenant Fellowship of Ministries, working in the Southeastern States under the leadership of Bishop Michael Blue. In 2009 he was installed as the Overseer of Immanuel Church in Richmond, Va., and is currently building a new ministry, Harvest Time Tabernacle in Rains, SC. Overseer Chris is a strong pillar in the Marion and Mullins communities. He is a member of the Truancy Coalition, which is a program that encourages children to stay in school and complete their education, and is frequently called upon to assist the Marion Medical Center in outreach programs to promote good health in the community.
He is also credited with beginning a church based program to help young men find jobs, get training, and complete the GED program. Overseer Chris is well loved and respected and a driving force in many lives; encouraging and provoking people to take control and seek holistic healing for the spirit man, the family unit, and financially. He has been used by God to lay hands on the sick, and they were healed. Testimonies of the blind regaining sight, the lame walking again, people in pain receiving relief, and cancer disappearing continue to follow him and prove that God is still a miracle worker.
