Pastor Edward King Jr. is the founder and pastor of Dayspring Ministries Christian Center, founded in September of 1994 in Omaha, Nebraska. Dayspring Ministries Christian Center originated from Dayspring incorporation under the leadership of Pastor Burton and Joy Holland.  Pastor Edward King Jr belonged to a teen Bible club under the direction of the Hollands. It is there he learned the true meaning of having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Pastor King once said that the Hollands had a God gifted way of bringing the Bible to life. Many lives were changed during the Holland leadership. After many long years of battle in the ministry the Hollands retired. During that time, God raised up a young leader, Pastor Edward Lee King Jr. God called Pastor King to continue the vision, the Hollands had for inter-city youth to know Jesus Christ, out of this Dayspring Ministrises Christian Center was birthed. Luke 78-79 says “through the tender mercy of our God, whereby the dayspring from on high has visited us to give light to those that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. (In short to give light to those who sit in darkness). The word “dayspring” means dawn of a new day.
