A Church for Every People and
the Gospel for Every Person
by AD 2000
J. Paul Landrey is president of Christ for the City International (CFCI), an evangelical agency with more than 100 missionaries serving in major cities of the Latin world. He assumed the post on November 1, 1995, becoming the first president of this newly autonomous ministry organization.
The son of missionaries to India, where he was born and raised, Landrey served 15 years with OC International in Brazil and Colombia. From 1980 to 1986, he served as a member of the senior leadership team of World Vision International in California. During that time, he founded and directed World Vision's U.S. Ministry Division, which launched and enabled urban, rural and refugee ministries in key areas of the United States.
From 1986 until 1989, Landrey served in Tyler, Texas as senior pastor of Grace Community Church, a nondenominational community congregation of 700. From 1990 until 1995, he was president of the Latin America Mission, which began Christ for the City in the mid 1980s as a major urban evangelization program.
Under Landrey's leadership, CFCI ministry has grown from the kernal of an idea into a dynamic program impacting 33 major cities in 10 countries of the Latin world with the Gospel. Forty percent of its staff is Latin American. He also serves as international coordinator of the Cities Network for the AD2000 & Beyond Movement.
Landrey speaks extensively across the U.S. and internationally on the issues of personal growth, leadership formation and cross-cultural mission mobilization. Paul and his wife, Carol, live in Miami, Florida, where CFCI's international office is located. They have two grown children, Richard and Angela.
Christ for the City Internaional is committed to fulfilling Christ's commission by helping churches in their pursuit of qualitative and quantitative church growth. It concentrates on the least evangelized cities of the world that are disporportionately untouched by the Gospel. Founded as a separate autononomous organization in 1995, CFCI is a ministry partner of the Latin America Mission, which is affiliated with the Evangelical Fellowship of Mission Agencies (EFMA) and the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).
