Eddie Rivera, Graphics and Web Support

Eddie learned the meaning of hard work from his parents. When Eddie was a child, his parents owned and operated a chain of Italian restaurants throughout East Los Angeles and Chicago. As a result, once he was old enough to work, Eddie was in the kitchen!

After high school he left Los Angeles for the Midwest where he attended Fort Wayne Bible College. During his junior year he met his wife, Renee. Together they moved to Chicago where they interned as church planters. They had two sons, Isaiah and Jordan.

During his years in Chicago, Eddie completed an internship with First Missionary Church, graduated from the Pastoral Leadership Institute, and was on the church planting board for Cornerstone Missionary Church.

After completing the Pastoral Leadership Institute, he was introduced to Greg Getz and FieldUSA. FieldUSA, is an organic discipleship organization that was forming In the Pacific Northwest. The calling to participate was clear and direct; it was time to move! 

After arriving in Seattle in 2009, Eddie fell in love with the majestic scenery and purchased his first digital camera. That was the start of his love of the art of photography. Now, he spends hours editing sites and developing others.
