Church United has been serving in so many different ways, assisting the local churches as they help their congregations work through the challenges of Covid-19. Eddie Copeland, Director of Church United joins Mornings with Eric and Brigitte on Friday to share some highlights of how the local churches have been stepping up to the plate during this hard time and how they are navigating the new normal of coming together as a church while apart.
The Global Church has experienced hardships for centuries. Friday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Tom Doyle of Uncharted Ministries gives us a perspective on the Global Church and how it has thrived during pandemics, famines, persecution, and other hardships throughout history.
Edwin (Eddie) currently serves as the Director of Church United — a trans-denominational movement that seeks to unify the Church for the sake of mission. Eddie firmly believes the Church is the hope of the world and has worked toward that end throughout his entire career. Prior to his time at NCF, Eddie served in executive level leadership and pastoral staff in both local Church and para-church ministries. His greatest joy is being married to the love of his life and high-school sweetheart Sara and being dad to his daughter, Anna, and son, Nathan.
Tom Doyle fell in love with the Middle East on his first Biblical tour of the Holy Land. In 1995, he became an official tour guide for the state of Israel and developed a passion for ministering to the Israeli people, Arabs and Jews alike. Tom felt called into full-time ministry there in 2001 and joined e3 Partners as the Middle Eastern branch director. Tom and his wife JoAnn began working in the heart of the Islamic world shortly after the terrorist attacks of September 11. His ministry to pastors in this region has opened many valuable doors for him to build key relationships in places like Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Syria and Palestinian territories of Israel. In 2001, Tom became the Middle East Director for e3 Partners and then in 2017 launched a new ministry called Uncharted. Tom is a master storyteller with several books highlighting God’s miraculous work among the Muslim people. His best known books include Dreams and Visions (2012), Killing Christians (2015), and Standing in the Fire (2017).
