Eddie Spencer -- Speaker for GEMS

Rev. Eddie Charles Spencer will be sharing his incredible testimony of hope and grace at Galloway Memorial UMC on Thursday, October 9. Born in Hollandale, Mississippi, Eddie began a life of crime at 6 years old, and was in and out of training school for most of his childhood. At the age of 17, Eddie began a ten-year prison sentence at Parchman for attempted murder and armed robbery.

In 1982, Eddie’s life was transformed when he gave his life to the Lord Jesus Christ. Since that time, Eddie has traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and has spoken to thousands of young people in schools, churches and conferences about the Seven A’s that every young person must consider–anger, attitude, authority, appearance, association, abstinence, and assurance and the love of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Eddie has published two books, Inmate 46857, an autobiography with an accompanying teacher’s guide, and Put Out the Fire– ControllingYour Anger Before it Destroys Your Life. An avid reader and master chef, Eddie currently pastors Mt. Salem UMC in Terry and St. Mary’s UMC in Crystal Springs.
