For me, the biggest challenge of being a church leader is the changing culture and society and dealing with those changes; to be uncompromising in a compromising world.”
Bo Edmonds, Preacher and Evangelist

CULLMAN – Cullman County is full of religious people from all different denominations. Whether the congregation is full of Catholics, Protestants or Non-Denominationalists, people around here love to praise and serve the Lord. And where there is a group worshiping together, there is normally someone leading the way. Today we meet Bo Edmonds, current events and end times preacher and evangelist.

Bo has been married to his lovely wife, Lisa Smith, of Boaz for 13 years. He graduated from Cullman High School in 1990 and has worked at Cullman Regional Medical Center for 25 years. Not long after graduating, he was called to preach in late 1991.

“I was saved in 1980 at East Side Baptist Church under Pastor Sam Hollis. I backslid in my teen years,” he explained. “I rededicated my life under a good friend and brother I worked with, Bro. Alio Turney. I received a license to minister at Calvary Baptist Church in 1992, the year I was called to preach. Over several years, my calling has been on current events and end times prophecy so I have been called specifically to teach and preach on this.”

Bo became the Pastor at Holly Pond Church of God in 2004 and over time he has worked various jobs in several area churches.

“I have been an Associate Pastor at Cathedral of Praise, Youth Pastor at Arab Church of God, and Christian Education Coordinator at Simcoe Worship Center,” he explained. “I have also been a Sunday School teacher, Sunday School Superintendent, and a member of the Pastor's Council and the Finance Committee as well.” Bo recently served at Vinemont Church of God as assistant minister, teacher and evangelist. He is also a member of the Pastor's Council.

Bo loves his family and has been blessed to be able to attend church with his wife Lisa and her family as his parents have passed away. 

“My wife and I currently attend church at the Dora Church of God where my father-in-law is the pastor. I am a teacher and I do end time prophecy updates as well. I love teaching and preaching on current events and end times prophecy and love sharing it and I have spoken on the subject many years in the church.”

Like many pastors around town, Bo has had many good times, and some very difficult ones in his ministry.

“For me, the biggest challenge of being a church leader is the changing culture and society and dealing with those changes; to be uncompromising in a compromising world,” he said.

“The most rewarding moment is seeing a person give their heart to The Lord Jesus Christ; seeing a precious soul getting saved is worth it all,” he grinned from ear to ear.

Bo is one of the many fine men and women who spread the Word of God throughout our communities. Their prayers and leadership help play a large role in making Cullman the wonderful place it is.
