CHICAGO, IL (April 23, 2013) – John Teter has accepted a call to be church planting team leader for the Evangelical Covenant Church beginning August 1.
Teter also will continue to serve as senior pastor of Fountain of Life Covenant Church in Long Beach, California, which he and his wife, Becky, planted in 2007. He will step away from his position as evangelism team leader, which he has held since 2011.
“John has done a superb job as team leader for evangelism, providing fresh vision and passion in that area as well as some very helpful resources,” said Dick Lucco, executive director of ministry development. “After a careful and prayerful process of discernment, we have a clear sense that God is calling John to lead our church planting movement.”
A Bible expositor and author, Teter has written two books, Get the Word Out and Jesus & the Hip Hop Prophets, co-authored with Alex Gee.
