Gabe and Jennifer Bouch met at Florida State University where Gabe studied Math and Physics and Jennifer studied Music. After graduating in 1997, they began working at Florida State as campus missionaries. In 2006, they moved to central New Jersey where Gabe began pursuing a Ph.D. in Mathematical Physics at Rutgers University. While at Rutgers, Gabe and Jennifer started an outreach to graduate students. In 2010 they moved to the greater Philadelphia region to assist a young urban church plant. In 2011, Gabe completed his Ph.D. at Rutgers and then assumed the lead pastor role at Freedom Church of Philadelphia.
In addition to thousands of young professionals and young families, the Philadelphia metro region is home to over 300,000 college students. Gabe and Jennifer are working to build a biblically grounded, Spirit-empowered, ethnically diverse, culturally engaged church that makes disciples in this strategic region. They have six wonderful children!
