Sue Edwards is associate professor of Christian education with a specialization in women’s studies at Dallas Theological Seminary where she has the opportunity to equip men and women for future ministry. She brings more than forty years of experience into the classroom as a Bible teacher, curriculum writer, and overseer of several megachurch women’s ministries. As minister to women at Irving Bible Church and director of women’s ministry at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Dallas, she has worked with women from all walks of life, ages and stages. Her passion is to see modern and postmodern women connect, learn from one another and bond around God’s Word. Her Bible studies have ushered thousands of women all over the country and overseas into deeper Scripture study and community experiences.
Edwards has a doctor of ministry degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Boston and a master’s in Bible from Dallas Theological Seminary. With Dr. Joye Baker, she oversees the Dallas Theological Seminary doctor of ministry degree in Christian education with a women-in-ministry emphasis.
Her books include Organic Mentoring: A Mentor's Guide to Relationships with Next Generation Women; New Doors in Ministry to Women: A Fresh Model for Transforming Your Church, Campus or Mission Field; and Mixed Ministry: Working Together as Brothers and Sisters in an Oversexed Society.
Edwards loves words, but often feels like she is drowning in them. She writes Bible studies to carry women deep into God’s Love Letters, hoping the words turn their lives upside down much the same way they revolutionized her own life. Writing is her way of reaching women that she cannot connect with one-on-one.
Sue has been married to David for more than forty-five years. They have two married daughters and five grandchildren.
