Vision for the City

Saw this email David Apple is sending to Philadelphia church planters. It did not take him long to get something going:

A year into planning our March 10-12 urban missions conference, our speaker Mo Leverett has had to cancelled. Our biggest question: How will God use this for his glory and the benefit of his church? We prayed and God has shown us.

We now have a new theme: “Vision for the City.” Bill Krispin is speaking Friday night on Philadelphia, its changes and opportunities for mission/ministry. Saturday morning would focus on the biblical imperative and strategies for urban church planting (many ethnicities reaching the nations).

By the way, be sure to make Bill Krispin's talk Friday night. It will be about Philadelphia. This man is a walking encyclopedia and history book about Philadelphia. You will go away more informed and more inspired than you've ever been about what God is doing and will do in this city.

Could you please provide some biographical information on Bill Krispin? I'll admit my ignorance (anonymously, ha) - I don't know the name. Thanks.
