Chris’s vision is to help foster a healthy and vibrant congregation that forms people to embody the character of Christ in the world. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies from Westmont College, a Master of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary, and a Master of Theology from Princeton Theological Seminary. Chris is currently working on his doctorate from Fuller Seminary in the area of spiritual leadership.
Before coming to Knox, Chris served several churches in California and is interested in the practice of leadership, vision casting, discipleship and justice, theological reflection, and writing. His great joy is watching God’s kingdom unfold in the hearts and lives of everyday people.
Chris met his wife, Devon, at Westmont College, and together they enjoy an active lifestyle with their three children, Hannah, Abby, and Lucas. His other pursuits include running, surfing (not so much anymore), skiing and snowboarding, hiking, gardening, camping, and anything outside.
