Leadership

FEBC leaders are men and women who seek to be more like our Savior, Jesus Christ, in who they are and in all they do. In the office, on the mission field, or in the board room, these dedicated servants are passionate about fulfilling Jesus’ mandate in Matthew 28:19-20:

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

With more than 2.7 billion people that have yet to hear the Good News, FEBC’s leadership team works diligently to mobilize 1,000+ workers that serve all around the world.

From the beginning, the hallmark of FEBC has always been to enlist, empower, and release indigenous leadership so that local field offices become autonomous and self-sustaining.

“I’m passionate about the Great Commission — to reach those who have never heard the Gospel before. That’s why I’m so excited to be a part of FEBC which has made, and is making, such a powerful impact on the world for Christ. We have the potential of reaching 3 billion people every day, nearly half of the world’s population, with the Good News!”

 

Ed Cannon
FEBC USA
President & CEO

 

Only one year from a comfortable retirement package, vesting of stock options and guaranteed health benefits for life, Ed Cannon walked away from a twenty-five year career in the oil industry and entered full-time ministry. He never looked back.

 

“I’m driven to verses like Mark 8:34, If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me, Ed says. “In particular I dwell on the phrase ‘you must deny yourself.’ Many of us have taken this radical challenge so lightly. The more I grow in my faith, the more I ask myself “what am I willing to give up for Him?”

“It is a hard question in the context of looking at what we have compared to what others need. It is not a comfortable challenge,” Ed continues, “but out of our love for the Savior, we should strive to do better, to do more.”

Prior to joining FEBC, Ed spent 9 years at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago

as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer and over 25 years within the oil industry, including progressive leadership positions with British Petroleum, Amoco and Standard Oil Company.

Currently Ed serves on the Board of Directors for the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB), Hands of Hope (an African Evangelical Relief Organization) and Revive Our Hearts.

Ed received both a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and an M.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Illinois. In 2001, he received an Executive MBA Certificate in Global Business and Finance from a prestigious collaborative program offered through Harvard and Stanford Universities.

Ed is an avid fisherman, dog trainer, and sports enthusiast; he has also served as a Bible Study Fellowship leader. He and his wife, Mary Jean, have two grown sons.
