As of November 1st 2016, Pastor Peter Edwards has been missing. Extensive police searches have not, as yet, brought his whereabouts to light. Please keep his family in prayer as they continue to look to the Lord as their source of comfort in this very difficult time.
Originally from New York, Peter is a domiciled Scot. His quiet authority, discerning ways, and heart for God’s people have been much appreciated by the PCF congregation.
