Chris believes that we can have an intimate, intense relationship with the Divine in this life through the power of the Holy Spirit and through supernatural encounters with the Divine, if we are willing to surrender our lives and awaken to God’s presence. Chris has a passion for Word & Spirit, his family, creative worship, preaching, music, and more. Chris has served as a pastor of churches of all sizes, including a 2,500 member church, a 250 member church and a 25 member church, and has loved them all. Prior to his call to ministry and completing a Masters of Divinity degree, he worked as a Quality Compliance Assessor for a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary in Athens, GA. Chris thought he would retire from J&J, but God had other plans. He is thankful for the shift from secular to sacred and for the privilege of stewarding the gifts of the Spirit and the opportunity to be a coin in God’s pocket to be spent to help people be saved and sanctified. Chris is thrilled to be part of the Outpost adventure!
GET TO KNOW CHRIS

Besides becoming a Christian, getting married, or the birth of my kids, it would be the day I was filled with the Spirit (September 22, 2016) and every day since.
WHEN I’M NOT AT CHURCH OR WITH MY FAMILY…
I’m either at some school function, Anytime Fitness, the grocery store, or grabbing a meal or coffee with someone
Anything Marvel and that one DC movie (Wonder Woman), Star Wars (of course), Lord of the Rings trilogy and the like, and Hacksaw Ridge
If coffee is a food, then coffee. If not, probably PF Changs & Mexican
Lots: 1 awesome dog (Panda Pup), 3 cats (Bilbo, Fritz & Cora), 5 Beta fish, 1 frog, 2 crabs
