Rico Tice Leaving All Souls for Christianity Explored Ministries
The Revd Rico Tice, founder of Christianity Explored Ministries and the Senior Minister for Evangelism at All Souls, Langham Place, has announced he will be stepping down from his position at All Souls to join Christianity Explored Ministries full-time in September 2023.
Tice has been at All Souls for nearly thirty years. He joined the staff during the time when Richard Bewes was Rector. During that time, CE Ministries has developed other tools for making disciples. Discipleship Explored, Life Explored, and Hope Explored all add to the courses being offered under the Christianity Explored Ministries umbrella.
The timing seemed right for Tice to leave his position at All Souls. His two children are nearing their teenage years and he and his wife, Lucy thought it would be a good time for him to have one full-time job rather than two.
“The role of evangelist at All Souls Langham Place is one of the most well-positioned in the world and I really feel that after 28 years it is time to hand that on to a younger person who can speak into this generation. I feel overwhelmed with thanksgiving to God as I look back on the opportunity I’ve been given to develop Christianity Explored and I now want to spend the rest of my life quite simply helping as many people as possible meet the Lord Jesus as he walks off the pages of Mark’s gospel.”
Ian Roberts, CEO of Christianity Explored Ministries, says: “We’re thrilled to have Rico joining us full time at such a pivotal moment for the ministry. With resources in the process of refreshment and unprecedented international demand we’re excited to see what God has in store for us in the years ahead.”
Christianity Explored is distinct theologically from the Alpha Courses in that it does not promote the charismatic line of thought promoted by the course founded at Holy Trinity, Brompton.
