About Ken Edwards:

For more than 25 years, Ken Edwards has demonstrated his passion for people by engaging in their stories, their work, and their hearts. Ken currently coaches men and women across the country in high ranking leadership positions who are dedicated to excellence and positive impact in their lives and careers. 

He’s a listener by trade and inclination—gifted in the art of discerning the meaning between the spoken lines. The result is that he recognizes and understands his clients’ core strengths, root issues, and struggle for change. He mentors people toward wholeness and growth, empowering them to live out of their truest selves. Ken believes that those who understand their innate design become more vibrant and effective people. His ultimate goal is to liberate people from fear and shame so they can live their lives with courage and authenticity.

"Coaching is a trusted relationship between coach and client that creates a safe place for professionals to shape a new vision.”


Pouring into the hearts and souls of others isn’t just Ken’s profession, it’s his way of life. He was a founding member of the Refuge Center in Franklin, Tennessee, a nonprofit counseling center that provides desperately needed services to the community. Ken also helped found the Center for Women in Medicine in Nashville, which provides resources and guidance for women in medical training and practice. He is currently a board member for Reclaiming Hearts in Franklin, Tennessee and the Genesis Project in Denver, Colorado, a group that provides soul care for pastors.

Ken holds a B.S. in education from the University of Arkansas, an M.A. in education from Southwestern Seminary, and an M.Div. and M.A. in marriage and family counseling. He has been married to his wife, Janet, for 32 years. The couple has three sons, two daughters-in-law, and two grandsons. Ken and Janet are longtime residents of Franklin, Tennessee. When not at home, Ken can be found riding his motorcycle, backpacking, or casting fly lines knee-deep in an alpine river.
