Eddie and Yvonne grew up in the church and both accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their savior as children. In 1990, Pastor Sweeney began pastoring in Mt. Rainier, Maryland where he has taken that congregation to three different locations.  In 2008, the final place for this vibrant and hungry congregation found its home at the Odenton Church of God.  

Pastor Eddie feels that as Christians we have a responsibility to share the Gospel of Christ and to always be studying and willing to serve the community. Pastor Sweeney and his wife, Yvonne, have been keynote speakers at crusades, conventions and training seminars in various countries. Pastor Sweeney has also has served on various training boards in the Church of God, Delmarva-DC region.  At this time, he is serving on the CAMS Board here in the Delmarva-DC region for the Church of God.  This has given him the opportunity to help with training entry-level pastors. He believes this has been one of the most rewarding opportunities he has been given in that he is able to impact the next generation of pastoral ministers.

In Isaiah 55:6, we are instructed to, “Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near.” Just knowing that God is ever present is what will keep us through this season.
