Colin Smith is the Senior Pastor of The Orchard Evangelical Free Church in Arlington Heights, Illinois. He and his wife Karen have two grown sons.
Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Colin was raised in a Christian Family and felt the call of God to pastoral ministry from an early age. He trained at the London School of Theology where he received a B.A. in theology and later an M. Phil. for his work on Calvin’s doctrine of justification in relation to the sense of sin and the dialogue with Rome.
Colin pastored the Enfield Evangelical Free Church in North London for sixteen years and during that time served in various capacities in the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches, including a time as their President.
Since 1996, Colin has served as Senior Pastor of The Orchard Evangelical Free Church (formerly the Arlington Heights Evangelical Free Church). His primary focus is on preaching and his ministry is shared more widely through his radio program called Unlocking the Bible.
