Curt Saxton

Pastor of Ekklesia in North Philadelphia

Curt graduated from the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton in 2004 and from Westminster Theological Seminary in 2010. Ordained in 2008, he serves as a bi-vocational pastor.  Located on a racial fault line between predominantly Black and Hispanic neighborhoods, the congregation by God’s grace brings together people from both groups in furtherance of its mission to glorify God by becoming and making disciples of Jesus Christ.  Outside of the church, Curt is responsible for the day-to-day operation of 17 Head Start preschools in Philadelphia and in Camden, NJ for Acelero Learning, a double-bottom line firm aimed at closing the racial and economic achievement gap among students prior to Kindergarten entry.

Curt and Christina Saxton live and serve in the Fairhill neighborhood of North Philadelphia.  Married in March 2007, they now have 5 kids: Elijah (14), Titus (13), Leila (11), Tamara (8), and Perpetua (2).
