In 2013 with a small team, Darren and Brandy Whitehead founded Church of the City. They had the vision to plant a family of churches that live in the way of Jesus for the renewal of global cities. The team have now planted six church congregations across Nashville and New York City.
Originally from Australia, Darren has lived in the United States for over 20 years. He earned his Masters in Ministry from Wesley Seminary and his Doctorate from Capital Seminary and Graduate School, with his dissertation focus on Millennials and the future of the Western church. He recently released his second book, Holy Roar: 7 Words That Will Change The Way You Worship, co-authored with worship leader Chris Tomlin.
Darren lives with his wife, Brandy, and their three daughters in Nashville, Tennessee.
