Jonathan and Rebecca Edney

Jonathan and Becca were married at OFBC on July 22, 2006. In the Fall of the following year, they began studies at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. Jonathan graduated with a Masters of Arts in Missiology in December of 2010, and they were appointed with the International Mission Board (IMB) in November of 2010 with almost 2-year-old Benjamin in tote and Matthew on the way. Matthew was born in Brazil not long after they arrived and they’ve been with the IMB for the last 9 years.

Currently, they are serving as church planters in Southern Brazil. Benjamin is now 10, Matthew 8, and Gabriella -who was born on our first furlough/Stateside Assignment in Charleston- is 4. There are a couple ways you can keep in touch with the work they are doing in Sao Leopoldo. Contact our office for details.

How you can support the Edney Family now:

  1. Donate to the Lottie Moon Christmas offering which provides their salary, car, housing, health care, Bible study materials, school tuition for their kids, etc. (OFBC accepts donations for the Lottie Moon Christmas offering. Please select "Lottie Moon Offering" as the fund. Give here >)
  2. Pray for the Gaúcho people of Southern Brazil to not settle for religious traditions but to know Christ as the all-satisfying Hope.
  3. Pray for our children’s unique struggles and victories on the field.
