Pastor Chris believes God has called him to mobilize a movement of believers to live beyond themselves and reach the world for Christ. After graduating from Chowan University with a business degree, God opened the path for Chris to serve in Christian Education. For the next 13 years, Chris served as a teacher, coach, Athletic Director, and Principal.
In 2014, Chris' heart broke for the local church and God opened the door for him to begin serving the next four years on staff at a church, while obtaining his Master's Degree from Bible Baptist Seminary. God began birthing a desire to pastor a life-giving church and in 2018, he answered that call and became the lead pastor at Vision.
He and his wife, Mandy, married in 2006 and they have one amazing daughter named Lily. Pastor Chris loves coffee, candy, anything Apple makes, NC State, the Carolina Hurricanes, escape rooms and exists to point people to life in Jesus Christ.
