Challenging people to live

up-close, everyday Kingdom-impacting lives

When Chris was in high school, The Lord radically grabbed a hold of Chris’ heart, and Jesus changed everything. With over a decade of daily surrender to Jesus, Chris aims to spend his life inspiring and equipping people to follow Jesus and to build the kingdom right where they are.

Chris desires to spend his life in closeness to Jesus- through faithful prayer and communion with God, and building the Kingdom of God wherever he is. Chris is equally committed to raising up more common, everyday, Kingdom Laborers alongside himself.

“God's game plan for
