Pastor Edward Pickett Jr. was born and raised in Oakland, CA. and graduated from Oakland High school in 1983. Through strict spiritual guidance from his parents he accepted the Lord at an early age. He was baptized at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Reverend Edward James Price. After many years of serving the lord, a teenage Edward became rebellious to the word and his relationship with the lord faltered. This is why Pastor Pickett considers himself a prodigal son.
In 1998 he accepted the Lord back into his heart and began his first work all over again at the New Dimension Deliverance Center under the leadership of Apostle Russell Obee. In 2001 he accepted his call to minister under the leadership of Bishop Deloris Obee, where he served faithfully for 12 years. In this ministry he was licensed to preach, teach, and baptize many by the grace and mercy of God. While at New Dimension Deliverance Ministries he met his wife La'Von Howard and they were married July 9, 2011.
