Tullian Tchividjian      

Grandson of Billy Graham & Bestselling Author of "Jesus + Nothing = Everything"

Tullian Tchividjian is a graduate of Columbia International University, where he received a degree in Philosophy, and Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, where he earned his Master of Divinity.

A grandson of (Evangelist) Billy and Ruth Graham, Tchividjian was the Founding Pastor of the former New City Church (in Fort Lauderdale, Florida) which merged with the historic Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in 2009. He served there as Senior Pastor until June 2015.

Tchividjian has written eight books including, It Is Finished: 365 Days of Good News (2015), One Way Love: Inexhaustible Grace for an Exhausted World (2013), Glorious Ruin: How Suffering Sets You Free (2012), and Jesus + Nothing = Everything (2011) which won Christianity Today’s Book of the Year in 2011. Both “Glorious Ruin” and “Jesus + Nothing = Everything” were ECPA finalists for Book of the Year. He also served as a Contributing Editor to various publications and traveled extensively around the country speaking at conferences, churches, universities, and seminaries. Tchividjian has appeared on Sean Hannity, Fox & Friends, 60 Minutes, CBS News, The Ingraham Angle, Morning Joe, the 700 Club, and many other TV and radio outlets.

During his time at Coral Ridge, Tchividjian founded LIBERATE—a ministry that sought to “connect God’s inexhaustible grace to an exhausted world” through annual conferences (2011–2015), training, book and music publishing, daily blog posts, a daily radio program, and a weekly TV broadcast—and then it all came crashing down in late spring of 2015.

As a result of infidelity, he resigned, LIBERATE was closed, his first marriage ended in divorce, and life as he knew it came to an end.

In the aftermath of his season of self-destruction, Tchividjian met his current wife Stacie—a native Texan. They have been married since August 2016, and together they have five children and two grandchildren. In the years following Tchividjian’s crash and burn, he was nursed back to health by a handful of seasoned pastors, counselors, and friends, in addition to his loving wife, Stacie. Then in 2017, they started traveling and speaking at churches, recovery places, and other gatherings about how God heals broken people.

In early 2019, after being out of pastoral ministry for nearly four years, a group of people from Jupiter, Florida, approached Tchividjian and Stacie about the possibility of starting a new church. After months of conversations and meetings, prayer and counsel—and with the unequivocal blessing and support of their pastor and the elders of their home church in Cape Coral— Tchividjian and Stacie relocated to Palm Beach County to start The Sanctuary.

As partners in life and ministry, Tchividjian and Stacie are wholeheartedly committed to declaring and delivering God’s boundless love to broken people.
