Ed Hickey became a committed follower of Christ at the age of 16. Sensing a call to the ministry, he went to Western Bible College (now Summit Pacific) in Abbotsford to pursue his Bachelor degree and then to Regent College in Vancouver, BC for his graduate degree (M.C.S.)
After serving in two different Greater Vancouver Area churches, he stepped out to plant Calvary Chapel Sunshine Coast in 1999. During his 15 years there, the church saw healthy growth, a building purchase and encouraged other church plants.
During the summer of 2014, Ed and his family moved to London, Ontario with the desire to plant a new work. After 8 years, this thriving and growing work was turned over to Justin Hickey to be lead pastor.
In November of 2022, they stepped into a new "Venture in Faith", to plant Calvary Chapel Abbotsford.
