Children's Ministry Specialist
A Favorite Verse: "For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea." - Habakkuk 2:14
Little Known Fact: Chris learned how to fix cars working at an automotive repair shop and he used to race cars. He's rebuilt an engine from the cylinder heads on up and still performs much of the maintenance on his cars.
Bio: Chris was born in Suffern, NY, and was raised in the small hamlet of Valley Cottage, where he has settled with his wife, Sarah.
Growing up, he went to church most Sundays, yet did not experience a deep, personal relationship with the Creator until after graduating from the University of Albany at the age of 22. He achieved a Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling, and met his sweetheart, Sarah in the process.
For many years God has placed a burden for children on Chris’ heart. With 10 years of experience working in outreach children's ministry under his belt, he joined the CEF family in 2012. It was providence that in 2008 he met NYC Metro Director, Betsy Maddox, at Camp Good News in Maine. As children in public schools across America are being taught a curriculum in which God has been stripped out of history, science, mathematics, literature and the arts, Chris is excited to be able to take the gospel into the schools of Rockland County, helping churches start Good News Clubs and sharing Christ with children.
