Pastor Chris grew up in Burnsville, Minnesota. After pursuing a call to ministry, he met his wife Allison in Pasadena, California where Chris earned an MA in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary.
Chris and Allison have been blessed three sons Elias, Brasen, and Jacob. Chris is honored to share the Good News for a living. The Bible is the story of redemption and God's love for all of humanity! When Chris isn't preaching or chasing his sons around the yard he enjoys musing about the intersection of faith and culture here at Lillie News.
