In 2013 with a small team, Darren and Brandy Whitehead founded Church of the City. They had a vision to plant a family of diverse churches that work together for the common good and the renewal of the city of Nashville. In 2015, The People’s Church joined Church of the City bringing two new congregations into the movement. Every weekend more than 4000 people attend one of four churches in the different neighborhoods of Nashville.
Originally from Australia, Darren Whitehead has lived in the United States for more than 17 years. For 8 years, Darren was a teaching pastor at Willow Creek Community Church sharing weekend service teaching responsibilities for all 6 campuses.
Darren is a graduate of Wesley Seminary and released his first book, Rumors of God (Thomas Nelson) co-authored with his long time friend Jon Tyson.
Darren lives with his wife, Brandy, and their three daughters in Nashville, Tennessee.
