Deon Edwards partners with her husband in Why Not Now Ministries. She is committed to guiding individuals towards a genuine relationship with God that will empower them to perpetuate the gospel in our culture.
A strong advocate for educational empowerment, she has served as a teacher and school administrator within the New York City Public School System for 19 years. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and a Master’s degree in Public and Education Administration. Utilizing her gift of teaching, she served as Christian Education teacher at the Church of God of East Flatbush for many years and continues to share her gift as lead facilitator of Bible Talk, a weekly bible teleconference, where biblical principles and their practical application to daily living are discussed.
Deon’s passion for healthy marriages has resulted in the birth of the ministry’s first initiative, Right Relationships. Deon and Wayne design and facilitate monthly hands-on workshops that equip and empower singles as well as engaged and married couples with fundamental principles for building and maintaining healthy, long-lasting relationships.
Deon is a fervent worshipper. During our weekend service she leads in prayer and powerful worship encouraging all to engage a Holy God and reap the blessings that He promises.
