Pastor Eddie grew up on a farm in the mountains, moved to a small town near the coast, then back to a medium-sized city in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. After college, he worked in a recording studio in Sao Paulo, Brazil, enjoying more ethnic, language, and musical diversity than he had ever dreamed existed. As Senior Pastor of Pathways, he serves as our lead Elder and teaching pastor, and also oversees our staff and key administrative teams.
Rev. Dr. Williams holds a BA in Religion from Carson-Newman College, along with an MDiv with concentrations in Missions and Evangelism and Ph.D. in Christian Ethics with a minor in Preaching from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
