John & Kelsie Mullen
Prague Christian Fellowship has been led by John and Kelsie Mullen since the fall of 1996. John & Kelsie were among the founders of The International House of Prayer Prague (IHOPP) in 2002 and John was among the founders of the Christian International School of Prague (CISP) in 2004. John also served on the Board of Directors of both organizations for a number of years. Kelsie currently serves on the IHOPP & YWAM (CZ) board of directors.
John & Kelsie are both from Texas. John graduated from the University of Texas with a Finance degree and began working in the banking/real estate sector (later had his own commercial real estate appraisal/consulting company). John came to Prague on short term missions outreach in 1992. God’s calling on his life became more and more clear. He attended Dallas Theological seminary while a youth pastor, and did a pastoral internship at the Dallas Vineyard under John Wallace. He was then invited to come back to Prague and pastor PCF by the indigenous Czech church that planted PCF. He had just started seeing Kelsie when he received a formal invitation to move to Prague. One of the things that attracted John to Kelsie was that from the age of 16 Kelsie already felt a strong call from God to live overseas as a missionary. Kelsie had already studied sociology, nursing and had gone on many short term mission trips when they met. God had a plan,… and in 1996 they started dating, got engaged, got married and moved to Prague~ all in one year! They enjoy hospitality in their home with their grown kids and dog. Mitchell and Matthew were born in Prague and Ester Moriah was adopted from the Czech Republic at 3 months of age. John & Kelsie also enjoy hosting interactive worship services and seeing others released into their destinies in the kingdom of God.
Henry has found a home church in PCF since 2021 and served in different capacities at church since then, including hosting a Friday night homegroup. Originally born in Germany to Chinese parents, he’s had a multicultural upbringing, having lived abroad in many different countries, including Vietnam, Australia, and the Netherlands before moving to Prague in 2018 for work. It’s in Prague where he encountered God on a much deeper level, turning his life completely upside down. The closer he grew to God, the more God called him to a life of service.
In 2021, he attended the Steiger Missions School in Germany, where God called and equipped him to serve full-time in ministry to reach young people for Jesus who would normally never walk into a church. Steiger acts as a bridge between the global youth culture of today, who do not think that church is for them nor can answer the burning questions they have about life, and the local church, who’ve often struggled to engage with the increasingly secularised youth of today. Active in over 100 cities worldwide, Steiger mobilises young followers of Jesus to reach their generation with the gospel, by going to places where secular youth hang out and engage with them in relevant conversations about the gospel, using creative street evangelism tools.
In partnership with local churches, Henry does training in creative & relevant street evangelism, discipling non-believers, and also manages operations for Steiger in Europe, overseeing areas of finances, human resources, missionary care, and recruitment, to ensure that the mission can operate and scale effectively. He’s passionate about seeing God’s kingdom come on earth and getting to know different cultures through their culinary experiences. 🙂
Libor was born and raised in Czech Repuplic. His high school studies were culinary/hotel and tourism oriented. He relocated to USA in 2003. Libor had a strong encounter with the Lord in 2007 and immidiately got involved in local church. He enjoyed serving in various ministries, namely to the homeless and later on he led young profesionals group. Also he was honored to find an output for his greatest passion – the Word of God, as he was able to teach in number of services and adult Sunday School.
In 2018 he met young lady named Zainab from Sierra Leone. As their long distance phone-conversation relationship progressed, Libor decided to fly over to Africa. They had a wonderful wedding in December of the same year which was led by 4 local pastors.
By the end of 2019 they moved to Prague. They finally found a place they could call their home church – PCF, and they welcomed their son Oliver in the very same month.
