Our guest speak for our 2019 Fall Conference is Christopher Ash. Join us for this 2 day event as we take a deeper look into the Psalms. We will meet Saturday from 9am-3pm (lunch and childcare for under age 6 provided) and Sunday from 9:15am-noon.
Christopher Ash is Writer-in-Residence at Tyndale House in Cambridge, England. He is a full-time preacher, teacher, and writer. After working in the telecommunications industry and as a teacher of math, Christopher studied theology at Oxford. He was ordained and served as an Assistant Pastor in St.Andrew the Great Church in Cambridge, before leading a church plant to a nearby village, in 1997. In 2004 he and Carolyn moved to central London where Christopher served as Director of the Proclamation Trust’s Cornhill Training Course, training preachers and bible teachers, until July 2015.
Christopher’s wife Carolyn serves on the Board of London City Mission. She and Christopher have been entrusted with three sons and a daughter (all now grown up) and six grandchildren. They belong to St.Andrew the Great church, where Christopher is part of the preaching team.
Christopher has written various books, including Bible Delight (on Psalm 119), Teaching Psalms volumes 1 and 2, Job: the wisdom of the Cross, and The Book your Pastor really wishes you would read (but is too embarrassed to ask). His main research project is directed towards writing a three-volume commentary on the Psalms, with a focus on how we pray them in Christ.
