Teammate Spotlight: Edward “King Edward” Long, Jr.
Perhaps you’ve seen him in cameo appearances on Season 1 of Preachers of Atlanta. As a student or parent, perhaps you were impacted by his years of service as a Youth Pastor. Or maybe you’re just an Atlanta Falcon “Dirty Bird” fan, who loved to “bow it in, bow it out” back in the day.
Team Jesus Magazine was honored to spend some time with teammate Edward “King Edward” Long, Jr., son of Bishop Eddie L. Long, senior pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, to chat about life, ministry, and his passion to not only serve Team Jesus, but to recruit new teammates to the Team!
Patience in Process
As Long shares, we are all under development. We don’t yet appear like God’s photographic vision of us. But as God patiently processes us in His secret place, the plans for our purpose and our greatness will be fully developed.
“I work in the darkroom”, says Long. “My darkroom is prayer, faith with works…making sure it’s right and it’s polished.”
For all those Dreamers on Team Jesus, or those who honor the support of others through thick and thin, King Edward’s newest singles are out now, “Dreams” and “Still Here”. Staying true to his flavor of Christian rap called “TRAPspiration”, be sure to check out his early summer hit release, “Light”.
Team, support King Edward in prayer as God’s plans for his life unfold, and connect with him on all social media outlets @KiNGEDwardLong.
