Home About Us Our Ministries Access ACS

 Chris serves as Pastor of Vista Grande Baptist Church.  His primary responsibilities include preaching, teaching, shepherding, and providing leadership.  Chris and Whitney met in the 8th grade in Conway, Arkansas.  They were married in 2002, and they have four children: William, Annabelle, Nathan, and Brooklyn (the only true Colorado native in the family!).  Chris has served churches in Arkansas and Texas.  He graduated from the University of Central Arkansas, and he earned a Master of Divinity and a Doctor of Ministry from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.  Chris is passionate about biblical preaching and leading the church to be shaped by God’s Word.  He enjoys equipping “the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12).  

His favorite Bible passage is probably whatever text he is preaching that week.  If you forced him to only choose one text, he would go with Romans 1:16.

 The family enjoys any opportunity to go and play in the mountains, but they especially enjoy skiing.  They watch the Broncos, but they yell for the Razorbacks!
