Northwest Texas Conference

Rev. Richard Edwards

Richard brings diverse experience in the local church and beyond. He focuses on the financial stability of the church and helps churches build on that stability by creating an “owned stewardship” by members and participants.

After receiving his undergraduate degree in music from Texas Tech University, he received his Master of Theology from Perkins School of Theology.

Before being appointed Lubbock District Superintendent, Richard served as pastor of Booker UMC; FUMC, Olton; FUMC, Muleshoe; FUMC, Dumas, and Senior Pastor of St. Luke’s UMC, Midland.

Richard served the NWTX Conference on the Council for Finance and Administration, Board of Ordained Ministry, Committee on Insurance, Board of Higher Education, Committee on Worship; Ceta Canyon Board of Trustees; and Delegation to General and Jurisdictional Conference.

He currently serves as a trustee for McMurry University and on the Perkins School of Theology Executive Board.
