Kevin Singer

Dr. Chris Stackaruk founded NF, along with Kevin Singer, while a student at Wheaton College. He became interested in living a neighborly faith when he married into a multi-religious family. With a background in Evangelical ministry and higher ed., Chris holds degrees from Moody Bible Institute (BA), Wheaton College (MA), and the University of Toronto (PhD). Chris is a Senior Fellow at Cardus, a think-tank, and has won numerous awards for his research, curriculum design, advocacy, and community service.

In his spare time, Chris enjoys rock climbing, freediving, and traveling with his wife Reena.

Kevin was raised at the intersection of his mother’s Evangelical faith and his father’s Reform Jewish roots. He holds degrees from N. Illinois University (BA), Wheaton College (MA, Theology), and NC State (MA, Higher Ed).


Kevin has extensive teaching and leadership experience in churches, campus ministries, and colleges. He planted two churches with the North American Mission Board (2009-14) and is now head of Media Relations and PR at Springtide Research Institute. Kevin is a prolific writer with placements in Christianity Today, Religion News, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Psychology Today, InsideHigherEd, and more. Kevin lives in Raleigh with his four kids, dog Sheeps, and two cats, Han and Chewie.

Julia Tweeten
Events Manager

Julia is a program manager based in San Francisco. She has worked with a number of startups to innovate and expand healthcare solutions and services. Her undergrad experience with UW-Madison campus ministries drew her to the mission of NF. She enjoys trying new restaurants, hiking, and planning her next backpacking trip with friends.


NF is America's most trusted platform for bringing Evangelicals and Muslims together.

Our work is supported a vast network of scholars, civic leaders, pastors, and imams committed to teaching Christian students to lead for Christ in a multi-faith society. 

These leaders support NF by speaking at our events, writing for our publications, and developing audio & video media.
