Rev. Neil E. KulpSenior Pastor of Mission

As Senior Pastor of Mission my role is to help the rest of the staff fulfill their roles and responsibilities—whatever that includes, whatever that takes.  I have only been on staff since 2010, although I’ve actually been connected to Chelten for over three decades.

You see, I was born and raised at Chelten Avenue Baptist Church in Philadelphia, but I returned to their current campus in my late twenties, becoming their Youth Pastor, then Missions Pastor through the 1980s.  Although I have degrees in business, I eventually retooled for the ministry earning degrees from Philadelphia Biblical University (now Cairn University) and Bethel Seminary of the East.

Since marrying the former Jacqueline Harkins in 1978, Jackie and I have enjoyed staying active with friends and family, including our four adult children, and ten grandchildren.  And when I find the time, sports, yard work and reading books by Max Lucado, Tim Keller, and Ravi Zacharias are my hobbies.  However, most of all, I desire to avail myself and others to the grace and truth of Jesus Christ (John 1:14).
