Senior Main Line Administrative Staff
Born and raised in north Philly, graduated GW high school in 1995, Cabrini College in 2000, and worked for Lockheed Martin for 15yrs as a software engineer. Started attending GCC in 1997, and met my beautiful and smart wife Hui Jeong in pastor Joe Lee’s small group. We now have two beautiful daughters, and we are currently serving and attending at the main Line site. I had the awesome opportunity to go on short term missions for the first time in 2018 to Indonesia, there God really opened my heart and eyes for the lost while also showing me how much of a bubble we live in the US. I love spending time with family and friends, and I still enjoy roller coasters, water parks, and eating (especially spicy foods).
Eddie was born in Long Island, NY and grew up in Paramus, NJ. He received his calling to youth ministry in 2018 while attending GCC Philadelphia as a Drexel student.

In 2023, he transitioned to full-time staff at GCC and is now pursuing his Master of Divinity from Cairn University. God planted seeds that grew Eddie’s heart for youth ministry through his years as a martial arts instructor in high school, his timely salvation right before leaving for college, and youth retreats he served at while attending college.
