J-T Richards

Pastor J-T’s bio:

“God rescued me at the age of fifteen, and continues to rescue me many, many years later. Through many circumstances, twists, and turns God led me to plant and lead New City Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I’ve been married since 1994. At my best I don’t deserve my wife (and at her worst she doesn’t deserve me). I loving being Dad to my three children. I bleed Boston Celtic green and love computers and technology. I am a Linux nerd and write my sermons in LaTeX (a typesetting program) with vim.”

J-T was on staff at Calvary Church for three years as a Pastoral Resident.  Calvary sent him to plant New City Church which launched on Easter Sunday, 2011.  He is a graduate of Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, and has since returned for more education. He is the Lead Pastor of New City Church.
