our team

The most valuable part of any organization is its people. The most valuable part of any winning team is the right people. At The Edge Community Church we are so thankful that we have the right people in the right places.

a little bit about us...

Take a few minutes to get to know us and we will be looking forward to getting to know you and serving you as best we can.

  • Brad Lewis

    lead pastor

    Brad feels it is a privilege and an honor to serve a local church as pastor. Although he is not able to fly faster than a speeding bullet or leap tall buildings in a single bound, he is pretty happy teaching the scriptures in a practical, relevant, and fun way that has encouraged many to go on to be super heroes for Christ. If you ever are in need of a second chance Brad’s your guy. He will walk on water (wearing his floaties), just to tell you about a loving God who is not mad at you. Brad is married to his Wonder Woman, Robin. He has four children Silas, Joshua, Caleb, and Leah, and four grandchildren Haisley, Ford, Jane Ryan, and Eli. On occasion you’ll see him don his cape on stage as he shreds his guitar. Yeah, our pastor literally rocks!

  • ROBIN LEWIS

    DIRECTOR OF OUTREACH, art & Communications

    Pablo Picasso said, “The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls”. Braced with a paint brush and a canvas Robin takes you to places you can only imagine with her artistic abilities. Or you can load up with one of the many mission’s teams she sends out and see them for yourself. Your soles are sure to get dusty, but your soul will be refreshed and renewed.  Every now and then you’ll see a look on her face with a dewy mist in her eye as she watches someone have the “aha” moment of accepting God’s love … or we are playing flashlight tag and tagged her too long. We do that sometimes. She also goes by another name, we don’t use it, just the Lead Pastor. He calls her “darlin” or refers to her as his “Wonder Woman”.

  • DAVID WARD

    BUSINESS ADMINISTRATOR

    When Noah was building the Ark, in the middle of the desert, no one had ever seen rain. And they saw the structure for an enormous vessel being built big enough to house a city. Everyone thought he was crazy as he made sure every detail was carried out to the nth degree (that’s a lot of degrees). But Noah knew if he built it … they would come. Wait, no baseball field, just a large Ark. And they did. David has this crazy idea that if we provide a structure to our organization, leadership team and finances … they will come. If the devil is in the details, I am sure he wished he had never met David, the stickler and protector of our vessel.

  • John Jett

    Worship leader

    John Jett is basically an alien of many trades. He is often confused about his age, plays many musical instruments, and has much difficulty equalizing his nature of excessive energy. He is dedicated to rocking out for God in a way that shows that loving Jesus can be out of this world!

  • Tallison Jett

    Volunteer Coordinator

    If you want to get anywhere by air in the southeast you more than likely passed through the Atlanta airport.  From there each person has been given a specific ticket to get them to their destination. Guess what! Tallison is the ever happy little ticket processor of The Edge. She will help you find your destination that is a perfect fit for you. Just keep this on the down low … she’s like the ever ready bunny and bounces around this place all the time.  People are like battery juice to her, so she’s going to be happy to see you and will help you find a place to serve before you know it. Don’t follow the Lion, that’s Edgeward the kid's mascot. She’s the bunny, well like a bunny she doesn’t look like one, just acts like one … wanted to clarify that.

  • Holli Tuma

    Director Of Children's Ministries

    Having three children of her own, all in different stages at the same time, Holli knows that you can’t have a recipe for kid fun without there being SOME pandemonium as a major ingredient. Wanting to have a fun and safe environment while learning about Jesus is her ultimate goal, along with some downright silliness and games along the way. While “organized chaos creator” is her unofficial title, she has a soft spot for kiddos with “different abilities” because she doesn’t believe God created disabilities, and will go out of her way to make sure both child and parents feel safe and comfortable having their kiddo in her care in the Children’s Ministry.

  • Cory Satterfield

    children's minister

    If you’ve met Cory, you likely envisioned a cotton headed ninny muggins. If you haven’t, you will soon. Cory is basically Buddy the Elf with a beard, always singing, always playing, always excited, and  teaching the kids about Jesus, while giving out goofy nicknames to everyone and usually with a piece of candy, too.

  • Donnette Baumann

    Director of Nursery & Preschool

    Donnette may look familiar, as she has faithfully served as our violinist on our worship team for many years. Other than playing violin, working with high school students as a foreign language teacher is all Donnette had ever known. Now, her students are much smaller and she is learning to speak a whole new “language” working with preschool students, but she is up for the challenge and having fun in the process.

  • Katy McCollister

    Family Ministry associate

    Having grown up at The Edge, Katy is well-versed in what makes our Children’s Ministry run like a well-oiled Willy Wonka candy boat in a chocolate river. From craft creating, to snack soirees, to planning excellent events—you can count on Katy having a hand in all of the fun!

  • Jack Madison

    student Ministry Leader

    If a Student Pastor had a super power to gain the trust of other students it would be Jack. Why? Because of the sincerity of his heart. Reaching and leading students toward their best life possible is a part of his DNA. Here's a challenge for you, see if you can walk away from him without a smile on your face … his is contagious.

  • Robby queen

    production manager

    Having been at The Edge almost since day one, Robby knows our church inside and out. His list of talents is as long as it is varied... Outstanding drummer, deadly bug man, awesome pressure washer, Christian rapper, proficient recording engineer, creative problem solver, hilarious comedian, happy husband, and excellent production manager. Robby takes the job of superhero seriously. We call him, Can-Do-It-All Man! Just not to his face.

  • sammy hart

    facilities manager

    The National Christmas Tree in Washington D.C. is decorated with 2,300 electric bulbs. We have absolutely no idea how many electric bulbs are on The Edge facilities … but we’re pretty sure Sammy has tighten or replaced them all. Once when repairing a heater fan motor we saw him and his helper, AKA wife Kay, create an entire duct system using only duck-tape and a paint stir sticks … just what we were thinking, he’s better than MacGyver! And he does it with a smile and a laugh that lets you know he loves what he does.

  • mike mckinney

    safety team leader

    Ninjas don’t really exist or do they? Drawing on his extensive military training Mike uses both his leadership and practical skills to keep everyone “safe” at The Edge. SOP, MIJ, ATS, ALPHA, DELTA, ECHO. You’d better learn the code if you want to serve on the team.
