Lee and Linda Kricher
Lee and Linda Kricher are the founders of Future Forward Churches and serve as guest speakers and leadership coaches with a focus on Leading Change and Pastoral Succession. For fifteen years Lee was the Senior Pastor of Amplify Church in Pittsburgh. During that time the church was transformed from an aging, dying church to a growing, multi-generational church. Then, after prayerfully crafting a detailed pastoral succession process, Lee handed off the Senior Pastor role of Amplify Church to his successor.
Lee and Linda both have extensive change leadership experience. In addition to his pastoral experience, Lee was Vice President of Leadership Development for Development Dimensions International (DDI), one of the premier leadership consulting firms in the world. Linda was Vice President of Human Resources for McKesson, Inc., where she managed a group of 60 Human Resources Directors, Managers, and Associates, providing HR services for 5,000 employees across North America.
Lee has a Master's Degree from Fuller Theological Seminary and an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh. He is the author of For a New Generation: A Practical Guide For Revitalizing Your Church. Linda earned a Ph.D. from Penn State University, an MBA from Regent University, and she is a graduate of Duquesne University's Professional Coach Certification Program. Both Lee and Linda are certified StrengthsFinder Coaches.
