And He gave some to be pastors . . .
Chris Browne is the President of Wheaton Press and the head of the Bible Department at Wheaton Academy in West Chicago, Illinois.
A pastor for more than 13 years, he serves as the Managing Partner of The Engaged Churches Initiative.
Since 1996, Browne has led pastors and churches through the process of equipping people for Christ-centered spiritual growth. Described as a teacher with a pastor's heart, he has a background in leadership training, organizational development, and curriculum design.
In 2004, he started Engaged Churches to begin equipping other pastors with the principles of Christ-centered discipleship. In 2008, he was invited by The Gallup Organization to lead and equip their Global Network of over 1,200 Faith Field Advisers and Leaders. A sought-after trainer, consultant, and speaker, he has trained leaders on six continents and led international training solutions for pastors, teachers, and leaders.
Our team consists of other pastors and teachers who are practitioners with "street cred," and who live out the principles of Christ-centered engagement. They are not theorists sitting on the sidelines, but peers who learn and return with integrity in the context of relationship.
We are always seeking the next person who shares our vision to partner with us in continuing to share the principles and process of Christ-centered leadership and discipleship.
Comforting others out of the comfort we have received.
