A New Springtime for the Church in Egypt

Dr. Jeff Ritchie, former Associate Director of Mission for The Outreach Foundation, returns to give us the incredible history of the Christian Church in Egypt, and what God has been doing there recently to renew the Church for its ministry and mission in a 90% Muslim country.

The Rev. Dr. Jefferson (Jeff) Ritchie is the former Associate Director for Mission of The Outreach Foundation, a Presbyterian mission organization based in Franklin, Tennessee in the United States.

Jeff has been a missionary to Korea (1980-1989), and he has served as Coordinator of International Evangelism in the Worldwide Ministries Division of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church, USA (1989-97). He served The Outreach Foundation from 1998-2016, and in retirement continues to volunteer as a Mission Advocate of The Outreach Foundation.    

Jeff is a graduate of Davidson College, Fuller Theological Seminary (M.Div.), and San Francisco Theological Seminary (D.Min.). He served the First Presbyterian Church at Caldwell, New Jersey, from 1976-1980 as youth minister.

Jeff is married to the Rev. Megan Knox Ritchie, a retired pastor now enjoying her new status as full-time grandmother. The Ritchies have two grown children and two grandchildren.
