It is with great pleasure that I welcome Tony Kulpa to the Christian Life in London team. Since Christian Life in London was created by the Late Pastor Mike Wilkins back in the 2003, we have been so blessed with the number of talented faithful that have been involved with this Good News publication and I know that Tony is another wonderful individual that will play an important role in Christian Life in London. Once you read Tony’s introduction, I am sure that you will agree. Rick Vandekieft – Publisher Christian Life in London.

Greetings to the Christian Life in London family! My name is Tony Kulpa and I am the newest Contributing Editor with CLIL. I am excited about contributing and I wanted to introduce myself to everyone.

I grew up in a family of 11, and as the second oldest child, I was introduced to a lot of responsibility from an early age. I was changing diapers, cooking meals, and teaching preschoolers to read by the time I was 14 years old. I absolutely adored being the big brother and the “responsible one” in the family. As a result I’ve had a lifelong love of children and of leadership.

My father was a minister for most of my life; in fact, I was born while he was in seminary. We were always very active in church. My siblings and I did Bible drill from a young age and went to the regional championship a few times. I often worked in the nursery and volunteered in Vacation Bible School every summer. As I was more technically inclined than most in our small-town church, I ran the sound system, projector, and lights through all of high school and most of university. In grade 11 I made it to the nationals in a Christian public speaking tournament.

I have always felt that service lies at the heart of the true Christian experience. Even as a youngster, I was deeply sensitive to others’ needs and hurts, and felt drawn to help. I also have always had a passion for Biblical teaching. More than anything else, I am delighted and excited by exploration and exposition of the universal truths found in Scripture, and the application of those truths in practical ways to problems both global and day-to-day. Teaching — or rather sharing what I’m passionate about — has always been almost an autonomic response for me.

It was no surprise that I wound up teaching for most of my career. The first school I taught at was Quisqueya Christian School in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. I taught high school math there from 2009 to 2011, and it was one of the most rewarding, and humbling, experiences of my life. As a result, I have spent many years teaching all over the world. In addition to the Caribbean, I have taught in South America and East Asia, as well as in Canada. I have taught mostly, but not entirely, at Christian schools, though I also had the notable opportunity to teach at an Islamic school for a few years.

I have found teaching at international schools to be a profoundly impactful form of unofficial missions. I feel that I have been able to touch lives — at a young and impressionable age — that may have been impossible to reach through other channels. Some students were among the most needy and vulnerable, while others would be their nation’s next generation of leaders. Both in Christian schools and in areas hostile to Christianity, teachers have openings that few other positions have. In 2015, I completed a Master of Biblical Studies from Canadian Southern Baptist Seminary in Cochrane, Alberta. I had started the degree in person and finished it while living and teaching in Asuncion, Paraguay. My specialization was in Biblical languages, especially Greek. Despite that, I am at heart more a high school teacher than an academic. While I love the truths that can be gleaned from academic style study and deep expertise, my passion lies in sharing those truths in simple, practical ways.

I have been living in London since 2016, and I am excited by what God and the Church is doing here. I have learned so much about the community and the everyday heroes that the Lord is using for great things through the Christian Life in London publication. I’m honoured to be a part of that tradition now, and I look forward to sharing with all of you in the future, as well as getting to know you all better.
