Carey Nieuwhof is the founding pastor of Connexus Community Church, a growing multi-campus church north of Toronto. Prior to starting Connexus in 2007, Carey served for 12 years in a mainline church, transitioning three small congregations into a single, rapidly growing congregation.
An author of several bestselling books, Carey blogs, podcasts, and speaks to church leaders around the world about leadership, change, and personal growth. He is a graduate of Osgoode Hall Law School and also holds degrees in history and theology. He was called to the Bar of Ontario in 1993 and then left law to pursue ministry.
He and his wife, Toni, live near Barrie, Ontario, and have two sons, Jordan and Sam. In his spare time, you can find him cycling his heart out on a back road somewhere. He blogs at CareyNieuwhof.com and ParentCue.org.
