About the author of this site
Ned Wicker is the primary writer of The-Bible.net. His Christian pastoral and chaplaincy background make him uniquely qualified for this task. Ned began as a writer, broadcaster and journalist and did a mid-career change into Christian ministry and Chaplaincy.
Ned’s early career
Ned is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and began his professional career working in television production before moving to public radio, where he worked as a news producer and play-by-play announcer.
While in radio, he was hired by the Associated Press to cover professional and college sports. He became interested in public relations and signed on to be the Director of Public Relations for the Milwaukee Mile race track. He would later be a press agent for Indy Car drivers, teams and sponsors. Along with two partners, Ned purchased Indy Car Racing Magazine and soon became its sole owner. He was Editor-in-Chief for 13 years.
While working the magazine, Ned was invited to join the Board of Directors for CART Ministries, which provided spiritual care for the Indy Car community. He would later take over as chaplain to the Toyota Atlantic Championship Series, a minor league series running with the Indy Cars.
Ned’s call to Christian Ministry
After selling the magazine, Ned felt drawn to the ministry. He studied at Trinity Theological Seminary. He was then an associate pastor for two non-denominational churches, but he was attracted to hospital ministry. He completed four units of Clinical Pastoral Education and an intensive residency at St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee. Ned then served in hospitals and hospice care for the next 12 years before he retirement in 2018.
Retirement from Chaplaincy
In addition to writing The-Bible.net, Ned plays guitar and sings with a praise band and regularly does chapel services at nursing homes and memory care facilities. He is also a high school baseball coach.
Much of Ned’s approach to The-Bible.net is based on his seminary background and experience in the ministry/chaplaincy field. He researches from his personal library and reads works of Biblical scholars online. He loves the Bible and enjoys being the primary author of this site.
