Pastor Chris grew up in Port Deposit MD, a stones-throw from Pleasant View Baptist Church. He was saved at the age of eight, but made Jesus Lord of his life in Nov of 1994. Shortly thereafter Dr. Harold Phillips baptized Chris and welcomed him into the body of Christ at PVBC. Within a few months Chris started working as a youth minister, and would answer the call of God to preach the Gospel. Since that call, Pastor Chris has been serving the Lord in ministry for 21 years, leading worship and helping wherever there is a need. One of his main passions is helping people fall deeper in love with Jesus and experience the joy associated with a life sold out to The One True God!

Pastor Chris resides in Cecil County, MD with His beautiful wife Liz, and his wonderful daughters, Laney and Zoe.
