Who we are
Pastor | Curran Bishop
Curran and his wife, Abby, have four children (Ellie, 12; Hudson, 10; twins Jack and Pete, 8). 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 earned an MDiv at Covenant Theological Seminary. He served as an elder before becoming the 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. Curran recently completed a PhD in historical theology at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis. They love hiking, hanging out on the beach, and checking out local restaurants 🙂
