Ken Lippold

Executive Director and Founder

Ken was born and raised in the Chicago area. He studied at Moody Bible Institute and Wheaton College Graduate School. After working for First Baptist of Geneva in the Chicago suburbs for 8 years as the pastor for university students he and his wife Emmy relocated to Oceanside, CA where he continued to pastor university students at New Song Community Church.

In 2013 Ken and Emmy moved to Liverpool to “test the waters” and see if the Lord was calling them to church planting and long-term ministry in Europe. It was while serving on the staff at Christ Church Liverpool that the idea for AT3 was born. After a year of serving at Christ Church Liverpool as a volunteer pastor, the church hired Ken onto the pastoral staff as co-pastor and at the same time commissioned him to launch AT3. Ken now serves as co-pastor / elder of Christ Church Liverpool and Director of AT3. In addition to that Ken serves on the board of trustees of the North West Church Resources as well as the steering committee of Redeemer City to City UK.

He enjoys food, reading and loves road cycling so much he rode all the way across the USA in 2003. He met his wife Emmy outside of a coffee shop and they still drink coffee together every day.

Daniel Shin

Volunteer Director of Operations

When Daniel Shin meets young leaders for the first time, he exudes his passion to develop and invest in them. Even as a former educator, he always had a propensity to challenge his students to consider different ways of thinking and to see the bigger picture so that they could achieve their God-given potential. Daniel has a natural heart for discipleship, pushing others to experience the amazing adventures God has for them around the world. He lives to see his leaders raise new leaders.

Daniel is volunteering his time to help AT3 develop better ways to train and equip leaders, both pastorally and administratively. But when he’s not doing that, he’s busy finding hole-in-the-wall culinary treasures.


Clint Harper

Volunteer Apprentice Development Manager

Clint has a passion for ministry, a heart for the lost and he longs to see young leaders launched into ministry. From a young age, he has felt called to build God’s kingdom through the local church. The question was always where and how was that going to happen. After studying Christian Ministry at Grand Canyon University, AT3 answered that question as Clint became one of the very first AT3 apprentices in 2016.

Though his apprenticeship finished in the summer of 2018, his heart longed to continue building the church in the UK. He continued his ministry on staff at a local UK church called City Church Manchester, and has now joined our team and is volunteering by recruiting and coaching new AT3 apprentices!

Whether he is in Manchester, Liverpool or on a partnership trip you’ll find Clint shooting film photography, playing music with friends, or chowing down at the best local eats with his Fiancé Hannah.


Jill Tunley


Originally from Cheshire in the UK, Jill moved to Liverpool in 2010. Having previously worked for the NHS and the North West Partnership, Jill began as the Administrator for AT3 in 2016. Alongside studying for a Speech and Language Therapy degree, Jill works part-time looking after the administrative side of the charity in Liverpool. This can involve anything from answering emails to interviewing potential students for our training programmes. The draw of the job is a constant mixture of varied admin tasks, interaction with people all over the world and seeing God continually provide.

When not working or studying, Jill can be found at the nearest beach (preferably when it’s a bit wild and windy) or making something new.


Tommy Welty

Volunteer Content Director

Tommy Welty is married to Alyssa, together they have two children: Atticus Mac and Gwendolyn. Tommy and Alyssa came through the AT3 and have served in ministries in Illinois, California, and England. Tommy writes for various publications and is a pastor. He’ll be volunteering with the AT3 team by creating helpful content which we hope will encourage current and potential leaders and partner churches.


Naomi Woof

Personal Assistant to the Executive Director

Naomi grew up in a small village in Cumbria, UK, before moving to Ormskirk to study primary teaching at Edge Hill University in September 2012. Since graduating Naomi has spent time teaching across schools in Merseyside and working at Christ Church Liverpool.

As well as co-leading the student ministry at Christ Church Liverpool and studying theology part time, Naomi works for AT3, helping to coordinate Ken and the many boards he sits on as a Trustee. In her spare time, Naomi loves playing football, guitar and watching films.
