About Me

I was born, reared, and born again in Philadelphia by God’s amazing grace in 1973. Married to Kathy for over 40 years. Father of two married sons, Andrew and Timothy, grandpop of our first grandchild, Evan, and owner of a Harley-Davidson Road King.

I have been involved in church planting for almost 40  years in the US, France, and Romania. I am on the leadership team of Grace Church  Philly, a church plant begun March 2010 in West Philly now meeting in North Philly at 123 E. Wyoming Ave. (19120). Our services are translated into French and Spanish.

God has given me educational opportunities to earn two masters degrees (MDiv, MATS) and two doctorates – DMIn in Missiology – TEDS and PhD in Intercultural Studies – Columbia International University and to learn two foreign languages (French & Romanian). I have several articles and one book published https://wipfandstock.com/crossing-cultures.html and another book under contract on urban church planting.

My part-time day job is as a certified addiction therapist at a behavioral healthy facility.
