Chris grew up in Jonesboro, Georgia, in a family that went to church every week. He was led to Christ by his pastor at the time during a summer youth retreat in 1993. Since then he has followed God’s guidance for his life. Chris now has his own family and has been married to his lovely wife, Tammy, since 1998. Chris and Tammy were good friends since fifth grade but never dated until after college. Chris and Tammy have two boys, Jared and Colin.
Chris is a professional media specialist with over twenty years of experience. During his high school years, he started running sound for his home church. During those years he discovered that he had an interest in technology and decided to extend his knowledge by obtaining a degree in media.
God has grown Chris by giving him opportunities to work at several different colleges managing A/V studios, editing suites and production equipment. He has experience in large churches by volunteering and serving on full-time staff for many years. He has overseen all audio, video and lighting technology throughout the entire campus which required operating, repairs, maintenance, upgrades or expansion. He has managed over thirty volunteers to ensure adequate coverage for ministry events and worship services. The opportunity to work at churches and to serve has allowed Chris to grow spiritually.
Chris is so thankful for his wonderful family and the opportunities God has given him over the years. In his down-time, his hobbies include water sports and football–Go Dawgs!!
