Tullian is a graduate of Columbia International University, where he earned a degree in philosophy, and Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, where he earned his Master of Divinity degree.
A grandson of the late evangelist Billy Graham, Tullian was the founding pastor of the former New City Church in his hometown of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. New City merged with the historic Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in 2009, where he served as Senior Pastor until June 2015.
During his time at Coral Ridge, Tullian founded LIBERATE—a ministry that sought to “connect God’s inexhaustible grace to an exhausted world” through conferences, books, a website, a daily radio program, and a weekly TV broadcast.
He has written several best-selling books including, It Is Finished: 365 Days of Good News (2014), 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. He has also served as a Contributing Editor to various magazines and journals and has traveled extensively to speak at conferences, churches, universities, and seminaries around the country.
Tchividjian has appeared on CBS News, Fox and Friends, 60 Minutes, Morning Joe, The Ingraham Angle, Sean Hannity, the 700 Club, and many other TV and radio outlets.
He has been married to his wife Stacie (a native Texan) since 2016, and together they have five children and two grandchildren.
In late 2018, a small group of people from Jupiter, Florida approached Tullian and Stacie about the possibility of starting a new church. After months of conversations and meetings, prayer, and counsel, they relocated to Jupiter to start The Sanctuary.
As partners in life and ministry, Tullian and Stacie are wholeheartedly committed to declaring and delivering God’s boundless love to a broken world.
