Ed and Carol were married on May 29, 1982 and have four daughters, three of whom are now married, and two granddaughters.
After getting his B.A. in Philosophy (with an emphasis in Religious Studies) from West Chester University (PA), Ed completed one year of formal Bible training, taking 42 hours of Bible and Missions classes at Tennessee Temple University in 1985. In 1986, he completed his M.A. in TESL from WCU. In December 2007, he completed his Doctorate of Missiology degree from Biola University. He was ordained by Calvary Bible Church in Hanover, PA.
Ed and Carol served with PIONEERS, International, in Southeast Asia for 23 years. They served in China for nearly seven years (starting in 1987), teaching and ministering at a university. Their work was primarily with their students, discipling those who came to faith. They were then based in Hong Kong for four years (1994-1998) as a support link to the in-China team. In 1997, Ed was asked to assume the role of Area Leader for South Asia / Mainland Southeast Asia (shepherding the teams from Vietnam to India). The family relocated to Chiang Mai, Thailand. The Area Leader role was primarily a pastoral role, shepherding church planting teams. While there, Ed also became involved in various member care ministries.
In May 2010, Ed was recruited by Lancaster Bible College to be the Coordinator of the Intercultural Studies major. His passion is to help students find and follow God’s call for their lives in the cause for world missions.
“I seek to glorify God by empowering my students to learn and follow God’s will for their lives through the ministries of encouragement, exhortation, and equipping.” — Dr. Scheuerman
