Fulfilling your calling in the midst of everyday life and work.
Buddy Osborn is the Senior Pastor of The Rock-Calvary Chapel of Kensington and founder of Rock Ministries of Philadelphia.
Buddy was born and raised by a single mom in Kensington, a tough working-class neighbourhood, with 8 siblings. He became acquainted with the street life early on, and by the time he was a young teen had, in his words, “seen things the human eye shouldn’t see.” At 13, Buddy was taken to a boxing gym, and by the time he was 16, had honed his craft and was considered one of the best young fighters in Philadelphia, a city rich with boxing history. After winning the Pennsylvania Golden Gloves, Buddy travelled the country and abroad competing on the USA National Boxing Team. At 22, Buddy retired from boxing, and would soon realize that boxing wasn’t enough to supply what was really missing inside him.
