Chris is a Texas native. So much so, that he was actually born in Texas City, Texas! Chris gave his life to Christ at 9, but did not really begin to pursue Christ personally until the summer before his senior year in high school. Chris grew up on the Texas Gulf Coast (League City) and came to Dallas on a music scholarship in 1992. He graduated from Dallas Baptist University in 1996. Chris has served at Brookhaven for many years and has been in almost every role except senior pastor. Right now, Chris leads the Family Ministry, and is excited to add Outreach to his roles as well. Chris thrives on growing in Christ, building and leading teams, improving things, developing strategy, learning, coaching, mentoring, teaching, and pursuing entrepreneurial ventures. Chris gets huge joy from being with his wife of 20+ years (Dori) and his 3 children, Hannah, Aaron, and Ethan. Chris enjoys the outdoors (especially fishing), still plays basketball occasionally (looking for a 40+ league), likes to work with his hands, and his favorite tv show is NFL football.
