Settling in Belleville, Illinois in 1995, a suburb of St. Louis, he grew up primarily in that area. Graduating High School in 2002, he went on to serve in the United States Marine Corps, in which he found God's calling to ordained ministry, passionate about sharing a more inclusive message of Grace and Reconciliation, especially to those who thought it previously out of reach. Rev. Eddy has received degrees in B.S. of Computer Science, and a Masters of Divinity from Eden Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. Always a student at heart, Rev. Eddy is continuing his education in the areas of Pastoral Care and Counseling, Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counseling, and Sign Language Interpreting. Rev.

In his free time, Rev. Eddy enjoys spending time with his wife and three daughters. Some of his favorite hobbies includes music, especially Irish Folk, currently learning the Uilleann Pipes (Irish Bag Pipes), video games, going to the movies, doing something outdoors, or just taking a ride on the motorcycle.
