Carmen C. DiCello earned a Master of Divinity degree in Apologetics from Columbia Evangelical Seminary and is pastor of New Hope Christian Fellowship, Pottsville, Pa. Carmen is also a public school teacher and holds a B.S. degree from Pennsylvania State University. Carmen lives in Pottsville with his wife and his two children.
Carmen's primary interests relate to biblical studies and apologetics, with a particular concern to understand and communicate the timeless truths of Scripture in contemporarily relevant ways.
The Christian evangelist/apologist must remain both attune to the Bible's truths and current on cultural trends. Thus bridging the gap between what God has said and the real world is the duty and privilege of all Christians. This ministry, Truth & Things, is an attempt to equip believers to that end.
