A track record of dedicated service to the church and wider society, former Evangelical Alliance general director Rev Dr Joel Edwards CBE leaves behind a lasting legacy.

We thank God for the life and ministry of Joel Edwards, and his 20 years of faithful service with the Evangelical Alliance and the African and Caribbean Evangelical Alliance.

Joel Edwards leaves behind an inspiring legacy of unity in diversity, social engagement and Christ-centred service. A unifier across evangelical constituencies, he confidently promoted his evangelical faith and values in the public square, as general director of the Evangelical Alliance and in other prominent public leadership positions, social engagement initiatives and media appearances.

Joel was an outstanding leader and communicator,” says Gavin Calver, CEO of the Evangelical Alliance. ​He served the Evangelical Alliance wonderfully over many years, culminating in his time leading the ministry as general director. I’ve known Joel since I was a boy and I’m incredibly grateful to him for his friendship, wisdom and support. In my time as CEO he has been one of a few very significant voices of encouragement and challenge that have helped me immeasurably. We will all miss him dearly and his contribution to the Evangelical Alliance will never be forgotten.”
