Gregory Edwards

Running for U.S. House of Representatives, 7th District
Election: May 15, 2018

I am a proud husband and father and have lived in the Lehigh Valley for 25 years. I founded Resurrected Life Community Church and CDC, which led to the creation of our Children’s Academy, the James Lawson Freedom School, and the Campaign for Change organizing initiative. I have spent the last 20 years building a racially diverse, economically self-sufficient, and politically aware community that has addressed racial, economic, and educational disparities throughout the greater Lehigh Valley.

A graduate of Geneva College (BS in Urban Ministry Leadership), Drew University (Master of Divinity), and the New Brunswick Theological Seminary (Doctor of Ministry in Prisons, Transformative Justice and Public Policy), I have been awarded the NAACP Man of Vision Award, the Peace Pilgrim of the Year Award, the Community Development Award by the Allentown Human Relations Commission, the William Gray III Leadership Award, and the prize for Multi-Cultural Church Leadership from Drew University.
