Darren and Brandy Whitehead founded Church of the City with a vision to plant a family of diverse churches that work together for the common good and the renewal of Nashville. What began as a small team meeting in living rooms in 2013 has grown to over 4,000 people worshiping in four churches around the greater Nashville area. Originally from Australia, Darren has lived in the United States for more than 17 years, serving as teaching pastor at Willow Creek Community Church for 8 of those years. Darren is a graduate of Wesley Seminary and released his first book, Rumors of God, co-authored with his long time friend Jon Tyson. Darren & Brandy live with their their three daughters in Nashville, Tennessee.
