Chris has had the privilege of being in pastoral ministry for over 45 years. Beginning at Grace Community Church, Chris served in various roles including the junior high pastor, the college pastor, and as pastoral assistant to John MacArthur. In Spokane, Washington, Chris served as a teaching pastor for eleven years, followed by several years of building, leading and overseeing a church-based ministry training center in Phoenix, Arizona. Since 2006, Chris has been the teaching pastor at Faith Bible Church. In each church, Chris has manifested a drive to cultivate spiritually healthy churches, through preaching God’s Word, leadership training and biblically functioning churches. His desire is to glorify God by passionately pursuing every attender to come to Christ, become like Christ in order to be complete in Christ.

Chris’s training passion lead him to design a 3-year training process, called the training center for laymen, which is now being used in multiple churches around the world. The Lord has opened doors for him to serve as adjunct professors to Talbot, Phoenix and Masters Seminary’s. And now FBC is host to a Masters seminary extension campus. Chris believes that a healthy local church is the most effective training environment from which to raise up men of God.
