Born and raised in Austin, TX, Chris has always been passionate about serving in his local community. After 23 years in the banking and finance industries, Chris followed his heart and call from God into fulltime service. As the Missions Pastor at Bannockburn Baptist Church, he had the opportunity to serve families in many cultural settings across the world. During this time he also started and led two initiatives across the city of Austin; CityServe and The Austin-Guatemala Project.
After serving at the church for six years, Chris entered the nonprofit world as the Director of Community Engagement for Passion Missions and now as the Executive Director for Hungry Souls.
Chris and his wife, Terre, have been married since 1981, have three grown children and 7 grandchildren…with one on the way.
