Bishop Edward A. Smith, Zoe Christian Fellowship, “Helping Abandoned Former Foster Youth, a Collaborative Approach”
Edward A. Smith was born in Los Angeles, California. He received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior in February 1973. He spent the first eleven years of his Christian life sitting under the teaching ministry of Dr. Frederick K.C. Price, Founder/Pastor of Crenshaw Christian Center, Los Angeles, California.
Edward Smith spent seven years as an instructor of Zoe Christian Leadership Training Center and served as an Elder and Executive Board member under the tutelage of Bishop Frank L. Stewart. Pastor Ed was ordained into the gospel ministry by Bishop Stewart in November 1982. In 1986 Bishop Stewart was led by the Lord to finance Pastor Ed and Vanessa’s first overseas missions’ trip. Bishop Stewart was also instrumental in preparing Pastor Ed for ministry, which led to Pastor Ed starting Zoe Christian Fellowship of Cerritos in 1989. This would be the first church plant to come from Zoe Christian Fellowship of Los Angeles with a prominent focus on missions’ outreach. In 1995, Pastor Ed and the members of Zoe moved to their present church complex in Whittier, thereby becoming Zoe Christian Fellowship of Whittier.
