Rich Perez /// Author, Pastor /// NYC, NY
From restocking mini-bars in an upscale SoHo hotel, to teaching high school English in Queens, Rich has worked almost everywhere in New York City. But unlike his scattered work journey, Rich’s story is primarily bred from one place: Uptown. Having studied film at The City College of New York and biblical theology at Elim Bible Institute, Rich is committed to discovering the faithful marriage between those two passions. Through a variety of speaking experiences, Rich has grown into a unique storyteller and thought leader in faith, family, the arts, and the Hispanic-American experience. Rich is the recent author of Mi Casa Uptown: Learning to Love Again, a memoir looking to push back the stigmas of city life and retell the inner-city story with faith and imagination. In 2011, Rich and a team of friends started a church in his hometown that would embrace the very values they lived with. Rich is the lead pastor of Christ Crucified Fellowship in NYC, where he lives with his wife and kids.
