About Chris

Chris Castaldo (BA, Moody Bible Institute; MDiv, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary; PhD, London School of Theology) was raised on Long Island, New York. For the last sixteen years, he has served in the Chicagoland area, at College Church in Wheaton and then at Wheaton College where he directed the Ministry of Gospel Renewal, a ministry devoted to equipping evangelicals for constructive interaction with Catholic friends and loved ones. Chris has served at NCC since November of 2014.

Romans 1:16 is a defining truth in Chris’s ministry. “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes….” In light of this good news, Chris counts it a great privilege to serve New Covenant Church and the Naperville community.

Chris has authored and contributed to several books including: The Reformation: Is It Over? (Zondervan, 2016), Reformation Theology: 500 Years Later (Crossway, 2016), Talking with Catholics about the Gospel: A Guide for Evangelicals (Zondervan, 2015), Journeys of Faith: Evangelicalism, Eastern Orthodoxy, Catholicism, and Anglicanism (Zondervan, 2012), and Holy Ground: Walking with Jesus as a Former Catholic (Zondervan, 2009). He has written articles for publications such as Christianity Today, Touchstone Journal, Credo Magazine, Themelios, and First Things.
