Chris is often described as a positive and encouraging person. He grew up in the Ottawa area and after graduating from Tyndale University he spent nine years Pastoring in Ottawa and then served as a Campus Pastor in Niagara Falls for three years.

Chris is energized by reaching the unchurched and dechurched and will be responsible for developing a vibrant and engaging guest experience. Chris will also serve as our first satellite location Pastor and will be working with the Lead Pastor to research, identify a location, and recruit/train a launch team for our first satellite campus. He will also be overseeing our local community outreach (Missions) and developing our future “For Ottawa” initiative.

Chris and his wife Violet have two beautiful daughters named Abby and Sophie! Chris loves cars, skiing, and Starbucks. But most of all, he’s passionate about sharing the life changing relationship of Jesus with those in the Ottawa area.
