The Academy – June 2018

The NALC is committed to the renewal of all our congregations, working to develop and deliver resources that challenge and open the NALC to the work of the Holy Spirit in our ministry and mission. Each month we will be hosting a free webinar based on expressed needs by NALC Leaders, for NALC Leaders.  

The month of June features the topic:  “The Digital World.”  What if technology could be another tool in the bag that helps with Life to Life Discipleship and Mission?  The second most requested topic!  We often hear questions like: “How do I create a PowerPoint?”  “Do I need a license for that?”  Join Pastor Tony Ede as he discusses other random tools in a digital world that can be helpful to every day life as we share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Tony Ede graduated from Waldorf College, where he earned an AA Degree in Electronic Communications and a BA in Multimedia Communications.  Graduating from Luther Seminary in 2006, Tony worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant in the homiletics department, helping to teach classes on using media and technology in worship and preaching. Pastor Ede has served at Bethany Lutheran Churches in the Danish Village of Kimballton, Iowa; as the teaching pastor at Trinity Lutheran in Webster City, IA; and currently serves as the senior pastor at First Evangelical Lutheran in Manchester.  As part of commitment to life-long learning, Pastor Tony earned a Master of Business Administration degree in 2017 from Upper Iowa University in Fayette, IA with concentration on organizational development. Following a long family tradition, Pastor Tony is also a nationally certified firefighter and EMT and has used these skill to serve in the community as well as disaster responses statewide. Pastor Tony was married to LeAnn at Trinity Lutheran Church, New Hampton, IA on August 17th, 2002. They have three sons that keep them busy: Carver, Liam and Burke.
