About: Pastor Chris Edmonds, CEO of YOKE Youth Ministries
Pastor Chris Edmonds is the son of Army Master Sergeant Roddie Edmonds, a WWII hero, whose leadership and bravery saved the lives of countless Jewish soldiers in a prisoner of war camp in Germany. Chris recently traveled to Israel and Yad Vashem to learn about the Holocaust. While there, the world learned of Sergeant Edmonds heroic actions and his designation as Righteous Among the Nations.
Chris is an encourager who believes an ordinary life lived well is extraordinary, even heroic. He serves as Executive Director of The Roddie Edmonds Foundation, a charitable organization being formed to inspire students to live heroically, and CEO of Roddie’s Code, LLC, a group formed to extend the legacy of his Father. He is also Pastor of a local church, teaches Leadership Development at the University of Alabama at Huntsville, and for fun sings lead and plays sax in a 50’s Band.
