Stephan N Tchividjian

Stephan N Tchividjian, sometimes known as “Stitch”, was born in the hills of North Carolina, deep within the Blue Ridge Mountains.  However, he would not settle there.  His childhood provided him a wonderful opportunity to live all over the world, including Europe and the Middle East.  Born as the eldest grandchild of the Reverend Billy Graham, provided Stephan at an early age, a kingdom perspective that he maintains to this day.

Stephan is married to his beautiful bride, Lisa, whom he met while serving as the youth minister of a local South Florida church.  The rest is history, as they say.   Lisa and Stephan, together have five wonderful children ages 28 to 8, three grandchildren and a two son-in-laws and a wonderful daughter-in-law.  They reside in South Florida where Lisa keeps busy as a homemaker, assistant to Stephan and involved in mentoring young women.    Stephan graduated Florida Atlantic University with a degree in Business Finance.  He has always found it important to balance both ministry and business, finding the challenge and opportunity refreshing.  Stephan’s varied experiences in the business, church and philanthropic communities have uniquely equipped him for the roles he currently holds

Stephan currently serves as one of the founders and the president of the board of the National Christian Foundation of South Florida, formed as a platform to encourage and facilitate generous giving among the South Florida Christian community, impacting local, national and international needs. In addition, Stephan currently manages his own small boutique firm, The Caleb Group, specializing in assisting select non-profits and for profits with comprehensive project management through the idea to the implementation phases.  Previously to beginning The Caleb Group, Stephan’s experiences provided opportunities to serve as the Senior Program Director of the Festus and Helen Stacy Foundation  and the Missions and Married Couples Pastor of Calvary Chapel of Ft. Lauderdale.  Stephan continues to serve as an Associate Pastor at Calvary Chapel.  Stephan serves on the board of directors of The Journey Church, Calvary Chapel Kendall, Landmark Bank, OneHope, National Christian Foundation of South Florida and Chairs the board of directors of Calvary Chapel of Ft. Lauderdale.   

Stephan’s love for God, people, the outdoors (especially the tropics and mountains) and life can often be observed through his energy and enthusiasm towards whatever he sets his mind too.  As a devoted husband, father of five, a good sense of humor, hard work ethic and an appreciation for God and the purpose of life, Stephan’s enthusiasm can be contagious.
