About Lee Kricher

Lee Kricher is the founder of Future Forward Churches, a not-for-profit organization that provides resources for church leaders related to pastoral transition and church revitalization. Prior to his current role with Future Forward Churches, Lee served as the Senior Pastor of Amplify Church, a non-denominational church in Pittsburgh. Under his leadership, the church was transformed from an aging, dying church into a growing, multi-generational church. He then led a Seamless Pastoral Transition to a next generation leader. 

Lee’s four decades of senior leadership experience in both the church and corporate worlds give him a unique perspective on change leadership and leadership transition in churches. He has a Master’s degree from Fuller Theological Seminary, an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh, and a Doctor of Ministry from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.
