Charles Kridiotis was born in 1956 in London, of Greek Cypriot ancestry but grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa where he studied and worked as an architect.
After a God encounter, Charles left South Africa to study at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, USA, graduating with an M.A. in Intercultural Studies (1992). God directed him to Stockholm where he was involved in planting two churches (1992 and 1997). He also trained and mentored others in church planting and leadership. In the mid 2000’s he went through a paradigm shift concerning mission and church. In 2016 he and two friends co-founded Catalyst Sweden to work towards a grass roots discipleship and simple church movement in Sweden. He is the author of “Simply Kingdom, Simple Church – multiplying disciples and churches.” He now lives in Stockholm, Sweden, is married to Carolyn and they have four adult children and two grandchildren. His free time is spent with family and friends, playing golf and painting.
