Sid Druen - Senior Pastor
Sid was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, and graduated from Davidson College. While at Davidson, Sid became a Christian and met Tere, whom he later married. After three years teaching and coaching at a private school near Washington D.C., he moved to Orlando, Florida to attend Reformed Theological Seminary.
During his time at RTS, he worked in a local Presbyterian church as a young adults minister, interned with Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) at the University of Central Florida, and graduated with a Masters of Divinity.
He was then a RUF Campus Minister for 10 years: 4 years at New Mexico State University (2009-2013) and 6 years at Davidson College (2013-2019). Sid became NorthCross' senior pastor in June of 2019.
Sid and Tere have 3 young children: Carol, William and Millie. Having children limits Sid's hobbies, but he does enjoy cup(s) of coffee, a good story, and sports where you mostly stand around and sometimes sweat.
