Senior Preaching Minister

Raised in an unchurched background in New Mexico, Chris was introduced to Jesus in high school. His wife Kendra has a similar faith story. They met and married as students at New Mexico State University while serving in a campus ministry. One of their greatest joys is raising their son Jacob and daughter Jordan. Chris studied at Harding School of Theology (M.Div/ D. Min.) and has preached for Highland since 1998. He is an adjunct instructor and the author of six books including his latest Ten Minute Transformation.
