Ed Tandy McGlasson is a former NFL lineman who played for the Giants, Jets, and the Rams. His call to ministry began in college after being healed from a career ending knee injury that led to his conversion while playing for Youngstown State. Ed eventually entered the ministry in 1984 and started traveling, sharing his testimony and speaking at evangelistic crusades. In 1988 Ed planted the Stadium Vineyard in Anaheim, California, and has been pastoring there ever since.
Ed has spoken at numerous conferences throughout the country and across the world, including sharing his testimony at a number of rallies for Billy Graham crusades. Ed's first book, The Difference a Father Makes (Ampelon Publishing, 2007) and latest, The Father You’ve Always Wanted, (Baker Books, 2013) along with his conference "The Blessing of the Father", has kept him busy in churches, conferences, and corporate events.
Ed and his wife, Jill, live in Orange, California with their five children, Edward, Jessica, Mary, Lukas, and Joshua.
