Who we are
Pastor: Curran Bishop
Curran and his wife, Abby, have four children (Ellie, 10; Hudson, 8; twins Jack and Pete, 6). They are graduates of Covenant College where they met. Curran served as a youth minister in North Carolina while Abby completed an MA in education, then Curran attended Covenant Theological Seminary and Concordia Seminary in St. Louis where he is a PhD candidate in historical theology. He served as an elder before becoming a solo pastor of a church in Carbondale, IL. Abby taught Special Ed in the public schools for five years and in a Charlotte Mason school for two years. Since becoming a full-time mom she has used her background in education to connect with and serve children in a variety of contexts. They love hiking, hanging out on the beach, and checking out local restaurants (when they aren’t closed due to quarantine).
