Ed Loane grew up in Wollongong and was blessed to be raised by Christian parents. He made a personal commitment to following Jesus in Year 7 and has since sought to live out his faith.
At university in 1997 he met his wife Jocelyn, who was studying dentistry. After marrying the pair spent some time on mission in Cambodia in 2003 before returning to study at Moore Theological College from 2004-07. They served on the ministry team of Moorebank Anglican Church and Ed was responsible for the saints at St Anne’s Hammondville.
In 2011 Ed and Jocelyn, together with their four children Jemima, Sophie, Benjamin and Samuel, moved to Cambridge where Ed completed a PhD and served at All Saints Little Shelford. In 2014 the family moved back to Sydney and Ed joined the faculty at Moore Theological College as a lecturer in Church History and Theology. The family also welcomed Abigail into the world during this time.
Ed currently is Warden of St Paul’s College and attends Naremburn Cammeray Anglican Church. He enjoys spending time with the family, preaching, reading and supporting GWS. As we walk through Galatians at CMS Summer School, Ed hopes that we might be encouraged and empowered to use our freedom in Christ to live for and proclaim him amidst societal pressure to compromise our faith for the sake of acceptance.
