Chuck Hetzler, Ph.D. in New Testament, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, was transformed from a reserved biblical scholar into a passionate revivalist after he joined Christian Union Universities as Teaching Fellow at Princeton University in 2008. Hunger for God and a movement of prayer and fasting led to a great work of the Spirit during his time at Princeton.
Inspired by what God had done in Princeton, Chuck took the position of Ministry Director for Christian Union New York. Next, Chuck and his growing family took ministry assignments replanting a church in Quincy, IL and then planting a new church in Manhattan, NY. Chuck joined Christian Union again in 2020. He currently serves as Vice President of Biblical Theology.
Chuck’s greatest earthly blessing is his immediate and extended family, including his wife, Karen, Assistant Director of CU New York.
Watch Chuck explain, "What is revival and why should we pray for it?"
